My female dog is in heat and we tried to keep her separate…

Customer Question
My female dog is...

My female dog is in heat and we tried to keep her separate until her heat cycle is over but my male dog broke through a door and I caught them tied but as soon as I said no to the male dog they separated really quickly and he ran off. She is only 6 months and I don't want her to be pregnant because I have heard it might kill her, and we also just didn't want her pregnant to begin with.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

A tie involves the male being stuck inside of the female for a prolonged period of time. Did this occur or did he simply penetrate her?

What breed of dog is your female and what breed is your male?

Is there any reason why your female cannot be spayed, such as a medical condition?

They were tied, I'm not sure for how long. My make dog is a pit/Coonhound and so is my female dog. They haven't been spayed or neutered because my car wouldn't do it until they had their 3rd rounds of shots, they have them now but they won't let us spay her until her heat cycle has been over for 3 months.

They are only about 6 months old

Ties usually last 15-20 minutes, so it's likely with you reprimanding him that they were near the end of the tie anyhow. It is possible for a 6 month old puppy to impregnate another 6 month old puppy. I would phone your vet tomorrow and let them know that this tie occurred. If they are unwilling to spay her and you do want her spayed, I would look to have her spayed elsewhere before development of the pregnancy can occur (they may wish to wait until she's outside of her heat cycle to minimize bleeding risk). You can also have a mis-mate injection administered if your vet offers it. This will keep the pregnancy from developing, as well, and allow the female to leave her heat cycle naturally. Since they've both been successful at breeding once, having them both altered before her next cycle would be recommended.
