Molly is about a week in heat and we noticed her vulva is very very swollen about the size of a half a tennis ball. Is this normal to get so swollen:confused:
And she is continuously licking her self

Sorry I am a man and have 0 experience in this kinda stuff:eek::eek:

Super normal. Wish I could have gotten you a picture of Anka just last week. It was like the size of my fist. And with the way her pigment works, she has a black vulva in the middle of her fluffy white butt. Super Cute. I've actually had someone ask when we were planning on neutering our dog.

Very normal. We just got out of Ava's first heat cycle. I had no idea they swell like that. And Ava's markings are a light fluffy butt with the black girly parts so it really was obvious! I think they lick themselves alot to keep themselves clean.

Ava was in heat for 4 weeks but only bled for a week and a half. She only licked alot while she was bleeding and not so much the rest of the time.

lol, Well, I'm a woman and don't have any experience with this, either, but I'm glad you're going through it first, as it's gonna happen over here one of these days!
