How to identify the estrus in Yorkshire?
We can assume the beginning of the first heat of changeBehavior of the dog. She can become excitable, disobedient, lose appetite or go to the toilet in the wrong place. At the beginning of the estrus, a certain swelling of the loop is observed and soon bloody discharge appears from it, as a rule, rather scanty. After a couple of days, the discharge becomes more abundant.
In a week or 10 days from the beginning of the estrus, the loopStill increases in size, and the discharge gradually becomes lighter. Usually, the estrus lasts three weeks, of which a female can be fertilized from the 9th to the 13th day. The best time for mating a dog during the day is the 12th day - the moment of ovulation - the exit from the ovaries of mature eggs, ready for fertilization. Although this rule is not mandatory and therefore it is recommended not to rely on calculations, but to closely monitor the bitch during each heat and record all dates of its start and finish.
This will help you choose the best day for mating. By day, the best for mating, the loop reaches its maximum size and becomes soft, and the discharge from it has a yellowish pink color. The bitch starts to flirt with the males, and when they begin to "care", she freezes in the appropriate position and pulls the tail to the side. The bitch assumes the same position, if in the area of the tail it is stroked or touched by the "loop". It is during this period that it is best to knit. The duration of ovulation, when it can be fertilized, can also be different.
On average, it can be from 3 to 5 days. It is best to knit a bitch in the middle of this period. Sometimes, by the time of ovulation, the discharge lightens only slightly, or throughout the entire estrus can be sufficiently bright and abundant. It's also quite rare, but there are bitches where the allocation is so scarce that it is impossible to see. This heat is called bloodless. It can also be that throughout the heat the loop remains stiff and does not practically increase in size.
