6 month old female bullmastiff. Enlarged vulva.


New Member
This is our first bullmastiff puppy. She is 6 months old. In the last 1-2 months we have noticed that the area above her vulva seems larger than other dogs. She has not gone into her first heat and I don't think she is yet. There is no redness or swelling on the vulva and she hasn't had any trouble with UTI's/infections. I'd like to get some input from these pictures to see if others have run into this. Is it normal for bullmastiffs and large breeds? Will she grow out of it?

What does your vet say? My first thought was a very recessed vulva, but I've never seen quite that much ... extra ... at the top. Does she have any problems with recurrent UTIs or vaginitis?
