Default Please help...Masie in Season

Hiya my name is Lindsay and I am new on here and need some advice and help....
I have an 8 mth basset hound called Masie who has just gone into season...She has been in heat about a week and is bleeding loads and it also looks like her bits are hanging out and she also looks really swollen too.

I was just wondering if this was normal when they are in season as I am a little worried about it.

Swelling and blood spotting are both normal, and the amount will vary with the individual dog. However, if you feel the bleeding is excessive or if things are "hanging out" you should have her checked.

Vulva in it's normal state:

Don't be unless, as has been suggested, the loss is very heavy. I'm not quite sure that the 'bits hanging out' might be although some Basset bitches can look alarmingly large when in standing heat!! Obviously if you are worried that what's going on is abnormal, you should take her to see your vet. Keeping her outside in the car until they are ready to see you or you'll have a riot in the waiting room

Talk to your vet about getting her spayed in another few months as the maternal Basset can quite often suffer with false pregnancies which does drag them down.

If she's been in for a week, her discharge should be starting to become much more of a pale straw colour which will be getting to the time she's going to be willing to mate. Keep her under strict control for the entire 21 days + she will be in season. She's too young to be a mum
