Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

A normal heat cycle is 2-3 weeks. Often the first 7-10 days are the most significant in regards XXXXX XXXXX and then the signs begin to subside.

How long will it be until her next heat cycle? Would it be too soon to breed her at the next cycle, or would you suggest waiting until the third? At what time during her heat cycle is she most likely to conceive? Thank you.

Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 5 years ago.
They normally cycle every 6-8 months.

It would not be too soon to breed next time.

The first week is usually the most optimal time where they are receptive to the stud.
