Nox showed the first signs of real heats on the 1rst of August. One drop of blood on the floor, she announced that it was coming.
Her heat cycle being really slow, she usually start one month after the first drop, and that’s what she did 🙂
We went 2 times to the vet to check the progesterone. With the help of Lumos, it’s easier to know when to go or not (as it’s an expensive test, I’m happy he’s here to help 😅)
First time we went on the 26th of august she was under 0,2, which means that she was in prooestrus, It was sure she wasn’t ready, but we wanted to know more precisely where she was. As we know she’s slow, we didn’t take an appointement 3 days after like the vet recommended, and we were right. Indeed, more than one week after, she dropped to only 0,5, so before the pic of hormones.
Today 14th of september, we’re going back for a check, let’s see if she’s ready or not.
She went through the lot of blood stage, and now it’s reducing, becoming more brown, and smell a little bit like metal, which shows that ovulation is coming.
Let’s hope she’ll be at just the beginning of ovulation, or just before, then we’ll have the time to prepare ourself, take the road, and maybe have a break in the middle to sleep, as we’ll have a 10h drive journey to meet her futur lover (We never did that much driving in one time with Nox)
Edit : Back from the vet, Nox is 3.7 today, and citology came back perfect 💙 next appointment is friday!
