Hi, My dog Freckles has a swollen v****a(they wouldnt let me use that word).Is she in heat? The problem is that there's no blood. This has been going on for 4 days now. She is perfectly active and is showing no signs of distress. She does lick her vagina a lot. She also seems to be growing nipples. She's not been spayed yet. Also, like 2-3 weeks ago, a male german shepherd (friend's dog) tried to hump her but I shooed him away. He's neutered but wondering if his p***s hurt her or something?
A dog tends to swell before they bleed. It is probably normal. Also, if she is keeping her self clean, it can be hard to tell. A male neutered dog is unlikly going to hurt her. I have know neutered dogs tie a bitch in heat. When you get up first think in the morning, take a tissue and pat her down there. it is the best way to tell if she is in heat. If you dont see anything in a couple of weeks, take her to the vet just in case it is something serious. dont let her near any males what so ever. I would make an appointment to have her spayed asap. It will cost more if she is in heat.
