How Often Do Pomeranians Go Into Heat?

pom1 How often do pomeranians go into heat?

My pom had a cycle in early November and I am wondering when her next cycle may be. I have read somewhere that poms may only go into heat once a year, is that true?

Not trying to breed, just wondering.

Your Pom should have her next heat cycle between May and July. They should typically come into heat twice a year; every six months or so.
If there is a hormonal imbalance, she may only come into heat once a year, or in the odd case, more than twice a year.

    Approximately every 6 months, but that can vary by a few weeks. The only dog that I know of that only comes into heat once a year is a Basenji.

    Most female dogs go into heat once every 6 months. My mom has a pom and she is no exception. Like humans though, no dog is ever the same. One may take only 5 months between heats while another goes 7 months. In general though it should be every 6 months.

    any dog, not just poms, can have a heat cycle 1-2 times a year. sometimes it varies but mostly, yes, once a year is correct.
    you need to moniter her very very carefully as if she gets pregnant at a young age it can be very bad for her health as well as the pups.
    i would advise spaying her since you aren't going to breed, it is less chance for her to get hurt in the process (like if she runs when they are "tied"), she will be at a MUCH less chance for cancers in the sex organs since they are going to be removed and it also increases her longevity.
    hope it helps.

    If you are not trying to breed, fix it.

    most dogs go into heat once or twice a year… if you aren't going to breed her get her spayed… for her own sake

    Good for you! I would expect them to cycle at 6 mo or a year intervals. The breeder might be able to tell you about her mother, sisters, aunts, etc. Now would be a good time to spay.

    Dogs go into heat every 6 months regardless of breed. I'm glad you aren't breeding her but there are other risks involved with keeping her intact like mammary cancer, uterine cancer & pyometra. She should be spayed.

    Hello:

    Pomeranians usual come in to heat every six month, but there are exceptions to the rule. I have seen some of my female yorkies come into heat every eight or nine months, so there is really no set rule.. I have never heard of a dog only going into heat once a year.
