Anything To Watch For In A Female Dog


Recommended Posts

As most of you know, I adopted a 2-year old girl, Joy, almost 3 weeks ago. Since Magic was a boy, I was wondering if there are any medical issues to look for in a girl dog. She's not a broodie and was spayed back in March.

the only thing I can think of is possible urinary incontinence issues. Rainey's showed up around age 5 or so and she was fine on DES for the rest of her life.

 

oh, and girl doggies are THIEVES. They will STEAL your hearts :kiss2

Congrats on your new addition! We've had 2 girls (including one brood) and 3 boys, and never had to watch for anything special. I remember a vet telling me a long time ago that we had to "be careful of UTIs" in our girl - but (*knock on wood*) - after 5 dogs, we've never had a UTI with any of them!

We've never had anything special with our girls dogs (a Grey and Labradors)- one out of 5 had UTI problems, that's it.

Never had any dog but the one girl and the only thing she has had that I am not so sure a boy would get as easily was a UTI, and that was about 6 months ago. And she is 12.
