Hello! Just joined- 1st post.

My 7 mo old OEB is experiencing her 1st heat. Her vulva is very swollen. Is that normal? I also have a 3 yr old male (intact) that believe Lizzy needs help keeping it clean. I’m guessing his (help) may be contributing to the swelling. I’m scheduling an appointment to see the vet for a wellness check, but getting in takes forever. Thanks for your feedback (in advance).

Their lady bits do get swollen during a heat. If your male dog is still intact, they should probably be kept separate.

It is very normal. You most definitely need to keep them separate. She is much too young to have puppies and it happens in a blink of an eye when the time is "right".
