My dog is female 9 yrs old she sounds like she has a cold

Customer Question

My dog is female 9 yrs old she sounds like she has a cold and has swollen anal glands. I already patted the area with epson salt on a dam towel, she also has her cycle which has now lasted a month and a half. She's always hot so I have to keep the house very cold so she is comfortable. What does this mean?

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible... How long has she had this issue?Is she still bleeding from her cycle?Is she eating/drinking/urinating/defecating normally?Is the discharge from her vulva, plain blood, or does it seem cloudy or discolored?Have you noticed any odd scent to her?
