swelling near privates
Hello YT, I have a 9 month old baby girl whom I think has just gone into
heat. She showed some nipple prominence the last few days and today I
noticed slight menstral type bleeding but what is abnormal I think is the swelling between her vagina and anus. This area just popped up all of a sudden and is hard, somewhat red , sl. hot. At first I thought glands but I
can't find anything to suggest there are glands there, the anal ones are
to the side of the anus. I could understand swelling of the Vulva, that would be expected, but this seems abnormal.
Needless to say, I am going to the vet first thing in am but I wonder what
this thing is!! Has anyones' girl every had similar? My bet is a hernia (perineal) but that is just me doing my homework on the internet. She seems ok, very playful, herself. etc.
Thanks for any advice.

I don't know if it is the same with all breeds of dogs but our female boxer did what you are describing when she went into heat, but you will know for sure when you talk to the vet, keep us posted!
