My female English Bulldog had her last heat cycle Nov. 2007. She had a healthy litter of puppies in January 2008. After delivery, we found out she had a small heartworm infection and underwent the IV treatment. It is now almost one year since her last heat cycle. Pups whelped in January, IV treatment in February..would that have "thrown off" her cycle? ALSO, let this be fair warning to all dog/cat owners..my female only missed two months of Heartgard in the summer of 2007..that is all it took for her to get an infestation...that was a very unfortunate, yet valuable (both financially and emotionally for us), lesson. DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO REMEMBER TO ADMINISTER HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVE TO YOUR PETS!!
