Have any US/Canada members had experience with this phenomenon in their own female? Spaying after one or more heats and going through false pregnancy symptoms?
My current theory is that these dogs may be spayed closer to their heat than most US vets will risk it, so they have a high level of hormones and suddenly no repro organs to put them to use.
Nope! Star was spayed earlier this year after several heats, and she was just about in heat when she was spayed - and she never had any symptoms of a false pregnancy.
But, then again, she never showed symptoms of a false pregnancy when she went through a heat cycle anyway.
But maybe it is true for those bitches that did show symptoms of a false pregancy.....
