    Question bully in heat and swollen vulva

    My baby Jade is now 10 months and she finally is in heat for the first time. my question is... her vulva is extremely swollen to where it is slightly purple. it is slowly getting bigger eachday so will her swelling go down? Thank you for any advice!!

    Yes the swelling will go down. Its kind of scary looking the first time they go in heat. Just keep her clean and comfy and she will be fine.

    Yes all normal, it will be over soon. Then about a month or so after she is out of heat would be a good time to have her neutered if you were going to.

    RescueMe Thank you for letting me know! Yes it is kind of scary I knew it would swell just not this extreme... she was supposed to get fixed before her first heat but as you can tell that didn't work out! Since shes been in heat seems like she cant control her pee very well. seems like shes peeing twice as much and even in the house which is rare for her... evenwhen she needs to poo she goes twice same with peeing. ive tried to look up if she may have a UTI but i havent been to successful on that. does anyone know if they go more frequently or there regular changes because there in heat??

    @jadesmomma ,the peeing and pooping difficulty is also normal. Just hang in there and be patient with her.
