You can get her used to wiping her bottom with a tissue every morning. It's good for her to be comfortable with it (especially if you're showing). Right as the heat is beginning you will often find a very slight pinkish tint to any discharge. When we get an intact female we'll be doing that to help manage her interaction with boys during risky times of the year.
i read somewhere else about doing that... I wish I had known the before... but I wont be showing or anything... hopefully this will be her only heat... I had to wait because of some other medical issues she was having but she will be spayed soon.
