You cannot leave your unspayed dog into a boarding kennel or with pet sitter as there is high risk of the dog getting pregnant.

– You cannot leave her alone in the house yard as male dog can smell that scent from distance, even she may flirt with other dogs and with female dogs also and lure other dogs to mount on her.

– Unspayed female dog tend to develop a uterus infection named pyometra and its life risky. If your dog has already developed this disease the only solution is spaying. If you spay your dog early it would be healthy.

– After heat periods some female dogs show sign of false sign of pregnancy. Their belly may swell, nipples may produce milk. It can cause infection mammary gland infections due to the hormonal changes and it destroys the dog’s metabolism rate.
