    Hi I have a beautiful 2 year old black lab girl. Since she started her 2nd season 2 months ago and since then she's been very anxious and noise sensitive. It's worrying and I'm hoping it's hormone related. I've decided to have her spayed in May. Has anyone had any similar experiences with young females becoming extremely anxious while they're in / post season? Would be good to hear from others ...

    It's only to be expected that a bitch will become anxious when in heat as many glands in their bodies start acting in different ways. But she should calm down again afterwards.

    She may have an overactive gland or a gland that's 'stayed' triggered, or it could even be a phantom pregnancy. I'd nip her to the vets and explain the circumstances, just to be on the safe side.
