When we had Molly, she went into her first heat cycle at 9 months, to the day. Her cycle lasted 5 weeks. I was wondering how many others out there have had a female that went into their first heat cycle. Bella is going to be a year old this Sunday, the 19th. She still has not gone into heat, nor really showed much signs of doing so. I was just wondering how long to wait before a trip to the vet is in order. Its a long trip for us, and I am SURE that the vet would LOVE to see us make the trip, even if it is in the best interest of the dog, I have to believe they also see dollar signs.

From what I have read, beagles normally go into their first heat between 7-9 months old, and then every 6 months after that (approximately).

No clue here, but I thought I would bump this up before it gets burried in posts.

are you sure she just didn't go threw a very light heat cycle. alot of dogs will lick themselves clean and some people dont even notice. she might have already gone through one.

honestly i'd say if at a year and six months she still hasn't had one i'd take her. a year is still within par i believe. i'll ask a friend who's pre-vet but i'm sure you can also try calling your vet or any vet for an opinion of the phone.

hope that helps.

maybe someone who knows more will jump in.

bump.

I've never had one take longer than 9 months for their first, but my Maya has her heat cycle every 5 months which is a little faster than most Beagles. If I was not obsessed with watching for the signs I would probably never know when my girls were in heat. Of course I have boys also and they help to keep them clean, but rarely do I EVER see a spot anywhere. I think it is very possible she has had a cycle and you were just not aware.

I got Katie about 4 weeks ago and she was about 9 months old, 2 weeks later she started her first heat cycle and is going into her 3rd week and it is starting to go way a bit now. I actually had her scheduled for a spay and she went into heat so my vet told me to wait until a few weeks after her heat ends to be spayed. The only weird thing I find with her is that she pees alot but I read that it is normal, if she is still peeing like a trooper i will be having that checked in a few days when she gets her booster needle.
