I have a 7 month old beagle puppy. She is in her heat cycle

Customer Question

Hi! I have a 7 month old beagle puppy. She is in her heat cycle right now, just recently we've noticed her stomach has swollen. I've always had male dogs and they've always been "fixed"....is her stomach swelling normal?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the beagle's name?
Customer: Daisy :)
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Daisy?
Customer: Nope, she's quite healthy. Just curious if the swelling is common with a heat cycle.

Can you share pictures of what you're seeing?

When did her heat cycle begin?
