Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately if you have responded back to me within 10 minutes of my response. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.
Has she had any diarrhea or difficulty urinating?
Is she spayed?
No difficulty urinating either? Has she had her heat cycle yet? If not, that is probably what is going on. Check her vulva to see if it is enlarged, or if there is any blood tinged drops around it.
Thanks for the information. She is most likely having her heat cycle now. You may need to get a sanitary diaper set up for her at your nearest pet store to keep her from being too messy. It will usually pass in 1-2 weeks. The color will probably change from red to a brownish color. Other than that, just ride it out. If she starts to act different in any way, have your vet check her out, especially if it is anywhere up to 2 months past her heat cycle finishing. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
Hello. I was following up to see how Layla was doing and if you had any further questions.
