Dear Ann Marie I take it you mean coming on heat or into season when you say broke down. She is coming on heat very frequently, most bitches come in once or twice yearly,
but at the same time she is still young and may not have settled to her normal pattern yet. A heat followed soon after by another is often seen in young bitches and is normal.
This time could just be the hormone the vet gave her wearing off. As long as she is not ill during the season, it is probably best to wait and see how she continues and you may find she settles to a more normal pattern. If not then discuss with your vet how to modify things, or if you did not
intend to breed with her, arrange to get her spayed. Another possibility to try would b a homoeopathic remedy, such as Sepia, to
regulate her hormonal function. These are available for humans, from chemists
and health stores and the dose is the same for dogs. June Third-Carter B.V.M.S., M.R.C.V.S., Vet.M.F.Hom. for PetPlanet.co.uk
