: I have a female shih tzu and have found the

: that time. 2 questions- do you have any
: info on keeping your house clean during that
: time, and how many times a year this will

: Hey Joanne, I just "inherited" a
: female dog about 2 weeks ago and 3 days
: after we got her she went into heat. At
: first I thought she was bleeding from a cut,
: as she wasn't displaying any odd behaviors,
: but after looking her over and finding no
: outward signs of hurt, I came to the
: conclusion that it had to be her cycle. I'm
: new to this too (as I've had cats all my
: life), and from the sites I've checked out
: so far, it looks like this stage lasts about
: 3 weeks. My dog has been sleeping much of
: the time as well, so I would hazard a guess
: that this is fairly normal (think of how you
: feel when it's "that time of the
: month"!) ;-) If you're worried, you
: can always call the vet and ask them a few
: questions to make sure...
: I have a 9month old Shih Tzu who just had her cycle for 2 weeks. She is very swollen I want to know if this is normal or should I take her to the vet.
