I went through this earlier this summer with my 2 jills, one at 5 1/2 and
the other 3 weeks later. I posted here for assistance and Dr Williams wrote

My vet used the gonadotropin releasing hormone, which brought them both out
of heat quickly and through a false preganancy. About three weeks after
their "due dates", they came right back into heat, so I had them spayed.
They both have shaved bellies now.
