Customer Question

I have a 3 year old maiden female German Shepherd. I am pretty sure I missed seeing her heat cycle. Would it be safe for me to administer PG600?

Hello, Thanks for your question. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. I assume you are trying to bring her into heat with the PG 600? I did some research about this. The veterinary reproduction specialists recommend using cabergoline for this. Most of them did not seem to think PG 600 works very well; have you had success with it? Whether you use cabergoline or PG600, it has to be at least 4 months since the last heat. The uterus needs to rest at least that long. If you try to bring about another heat too soon, it wil not be a fertile heat. Let me know what else I can help with or answer. Rebecca
