3yr old female in middle of heat cycle going to breed for at least 1 litter.

she has already shed her winter coat but this week she has lost some hair and also a little weight but appetite is good and she acts normal.

could it be because she is in heat?

Hi Lori
It could be because she’s in season, or because it’s hot especially if she spends much time outside.

Of course, she could have a health problem of some sort but as she’s eating and acting normally, chances are that it’s something minor.

The only way you could tell for sure that she’s completely healthy is to have your vet give her a thorough check up. If you’re concerned in any way then I’d suggest you do that.

Best of luck.
