It looks like I will be able to stay in Edinburgh this summer, which is excellent because that is what I really wanted. However the work I'll be doing for school this summer will require me to be away for most day hours during August. I have arranged for Lycia to be in daycare throughout the period, but they don't take unspayed bitches in heat in the group. I called my local vet who told me about about getting an injection for her which would suppress her heat. This would be ideal but I wanted to see if anyone on the board had any experience with this procedure. I have made an appointment for a consultation with the prestigious Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies for further information.
