Customer Question

I can send you an image. She is in her second heat, but the reproductive area is really swollen and dangling downward. i don't remember seeing that the previous time in her first heat.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Tengu. I'm concerned her uterus might be prolapsing. Seems odd because she has not had puppies.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tengu?
Customer: She is not our dog; she is being fostered for a friend. Her brother lives here and is ours; we keep them separate.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Tengu. I'd very much like to view the picture you have of her. If you're not familiar with the process of sending one, the following link will walk you through the process:

Also, how long has she been in heat?


Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I think she has been in heat a little over two weeks. She seems to have stopped spotted.

The image is not attaching. Can I send it by email?

I can't access anything with the link you sent:(

I'm sorry that you're having difficulty with sending the image. You can try sending it to the following email address but I'm not sure how long it will take before it finds its way to me. But, if you do, be sure to include the URL link for this question: for assistance

Another option would be to post it to a site such as Photobucket and then send me the URL link; make sure it's not "private".

I'm so sorry for this inconvenience:( Deb

I do not see the paperclip icon
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I don't want to spend the extra money. This is frustrating.
Expert:  Dr. Deb replied 11 months ago.

Unfortuantely, I can't see what you see at your end of things....and I know how frustrating this is so, again, my apologies.

On my toolbar (above where I'm typing this response to you), the last icon is a paperclip. I understand it may look like a "tree" as well although I'm not entirely certain about this.

Can you post it to an independent site, do you think?

How about viewing this youtube video to see if Tengu's vaginal area looks like this?
