• Mala had her period about a month ago and she is still licking herself constantly is this normal and her private parts still enlarged

    Hi Linda,
    Since Mala has been licking herself for so long, it is possible that there is another reason for this behavior instead of her heat cycle. I would recommend bringing her to your veterinarian for an exam where they can determine if there is another cause such as irritation or infection. You may also want to consider using an Elizabethan collar until you can have her examined.
