My beloved RVCA has started her special time. It started 7-10 days ago. In the last few days it has started to smell. It isn't bad but if she isn't bathed every other day it is pretty stinky. Keep in mind I don't know what "normal" is. I've only ever had males. She needs to be fixed, we just moved and I don't know any good vets in the southern Utah/Vegas area. RVCA sleeps cuddled up to me every night. She is a great dog, please advise, IS THIS NORMAL? Should I worry about smell? Does smell mean in heat or infection?
Thanks in advance.
