lgd won't eat

We have a LGD that is about 6 mths. She was fine until three days ago. She just stopped eating. Won't even eat scraps that I tried to temp her with. They (2girls) currently live in the pasture of 11 acres with 3 pigs and 12 young sheep. This has never been a problem since our livestock is so docile.

Probably going into season
by: Marianne

I suggest she is starting her first heat. I also suggest you keep her contained from any possibility of meeting an intact male for the next 20 days since she is much too young to have puppies and furthermore, it is certainly not right to augment the population of unwanted puppies and to find good homes for them. She should not be bred before at least 24 months of age.

I would also suggest that you have her spayed sometime before her next heat which will probably be about her 12 months of age. Most females have an approximate 6 month cycle. spaying will prevent her leaving her flock unprotected every time she goes into heat.

Furthermore, please don't subscribe to the old wives' tale that she would not be a good guardian. She will just be more loyal to her charges.
