how old is a dog before she stops going into heat?

my dog is five now. Can't afford to get her spayed but was wondering how long before she stopes on her own?

  • Our dog, Maggie, was 10 years old and still going into heat. What sold me on getting her spayed was the vet saying that she could get cervical cancer. Most SPCAs have low cost spay/neuter programs if you can find one in your area.

  • you can google low cost spay and neuter in your area and find one you can afford! she would be better off spayed and much, much healthier.

  • she will never stop going into heat unless you have her spayed. Look for a low cost clinic in your area.

  • Agree with the low-cost spay options - some places have you paying close to nothing (just had the cats done for $30 each). Some of my girls have been 10 years old before they stopped (and certainly would be dangerous for them to have puppies at that old too).
