Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. When was her last heat cycle? As far as what you can do, I would recommend giving him Benadryl (1mg/lb) tonight and keep them separate. The Benadryl is a safe sedative you can use and it is over the counter.

She isn't in heat well doesn't look like it but maybe just didn't swell up allot.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Schmidt, Dog Veterinarian replied 5 months ago
She could be just starting to come into hear before her vulva starts to look swollen and the bleeding starts to become heavy. Male dogs can tell a lot sooner than we can because of the pheromones a female dog emits that we can't detect.

I'll follow up for Dr. Schmidt for you. I agree with her that Tinkerbell is in proestrus - the first stage of her heat cycle. Regretfully, there are no drugs short of a heavy tranquilizer or anesthetic that will stop a male from chasing after a female in heat. Your options at this time are to have Rico's vet prescribe a phenothiazine tranquilizer such as acepromazine, temporarily remove one or other of your dogs from your home, or have Tinkerbell spayed. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
