Could someone tell me if our babies are supposed to feel poorly and go off their food when they are in heat???

Kayla seems to be a bit under the weather!

yes they generally do feel a bit under the weather...and can go off their food.

When did Kayla last have a season? If it's less than a couple of months ago, she might be having a phantom pregnancy.

If she's having heats at less than 5 month intervals, and especially if they are heavy and smelly, then there is the possibility of a chronic form of pyometra, so best to get the vet to check them over.

Hope this helps

She had her last heat about 5 to 6 months ago. the discharge is not smelly. She just seems very tired . Today she did eat her food. Yesterday she didnt want to eat. So I was a bit worried.
Thanks for your answer.

I'd check with the vet if this continues. It may have nothing to do with being in heat and be a sign of actual illness.
