Question:

: My dog her name is Jesse she is only a little over a year and she is in heat for the second time. She is driving us all crazy is jumping and always wants us to pet her and rub her stomach. When you stop she goes crazy. what can we do to calm her down is there anything we can give her (like humans have midol) is there anything to give the dog? she wasn't acting this way the first time.
: thank You

Dear Barbara,

Since Jesse did not act like this during her first heat, I suggest you have her examined by your vet. She may be pregnant or she may be suffering from a "false" pregnancy. OR her behavior may have nothing to do with her being in heat at all...

Better to be safe then sorry -- please take Jesse to your vet as soon as possible.
