• Hi my puppy is just 7 months old and 3.8 pounds she just got her period should I call the vet for an appointment

    Hi Delia,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about your questions. Having her first heat cycle at 7 months is not uncommon for a small dog. It is important to keep her away from any male dogs to prevent pregnancy. Your vet will be able to answer any other questions as they know your pet and they will be able to give you advice that is specific to her.

Need more information or advice?

Contact your nearest Banfield Pet Hospital to schedule an appointment today.
