Please help :(

I have a 10 month old girl and she has been on heat coming up to 4 weeks. It did ease off and now it is quite heavy and she is very swollen below and the smell is very bad. I have taken her to the vets today and they said she is ok, no temperature and they took a swab and they said there is no infection but a few bacteria cells so they have given her antibiotics to be on the safe side. Just thought I would join here and see if anyone else has experienced this as it is all new to me and I am still slightly worried. I am trying to keep her as clean as possible and will be getting her spayed after this. Thanks

When my girl goes into heat it last 3 time 4 weeks also as for the swollen part I have never had that.. I also noticed that she acts a little bit different (kind of off) and Yes it does get quite a bit smelly..

I would just keep a close eye on her if anything.. Hope all is OK

My old lab went into heat only once, it lasted a few weeks, but her vulva was super swollen and her discharge was very smelly.

Swelling is one of the signs of heat. Some will bleed for three weeks, others only for one but the heat cycle is 3 weeks I believe.

Thanks for all your comments. I just wanted to see how everyone else's dogs behaved because this is all new to me and it's worrying the amount she is bleeding and the smell I do feel sorry for her!
