Default 5 lb Chihuahua with huge teets and private but not pregnant

We just came from the Vet with Buttons, she JUST had her first heat/period at 11 months old it lasted about 3 weeks but, she was all swollen in her (sorry i dont know what top call it) private area and still is swollen, her teets look like they are filling with milk, she had a SMALL chance of my larger dog getting to her but this is still NOT possible to be filling with milk already. The Vet thinks he might have got her and gave her an infection so we started her on antibiotic, my next question was to him was what if its a hormonal problem and he said, this is they way she might have her heat, there is nothing to do about it.
My question is to all you dog lovers is ... have you heard of such a small dog getting huge teets and ** area ,JUST in heat ???
OR is anyones dog on medicine for such a thing ??? she looks like its uncomfortable but shows no signs of discomfort No problems urinating either.
Thank you for advice.

No large nipples if not bred in heat season, but the vulva swells the entire heat which is 21 days long. She will go down, she might have an infection also. A small dog would also appear larger.?

Oh yea, I have two in heat now and one coming in and one bred.? How is that for looking for two males to mind their business and NOT. lol.

She could be having a phantom pregnancy?

YES It must be a phantom pregnancy. Her vulva is still larger than before but the antibiotic shot and oral medicine should have cleared anything up, so I guesss thats just her size now after her heat.
What bothers me is she still has swollen teets about the size of a nickel, what I mean is there is a circle pouch of MILK? about the size of a nickel around her nipples, is this normal for PP? Does anyone know how long PP will last?
Thank you
Denise

It might vary from chi to chi, like seasons?

It will last until she's past what would have been her due date if she'd really been pregnant. If you have her spayed, you won't have those worries any more. Dogs that have false pregnancies are at increased risk for pyometra.

Quote:
Pyometra in the dog is a very serious condition! Before we look at what pyometra is, let's review the best way to avoid pyometra... and that is spaying. Pyometra means pus in the uterine cavity; if a pet is spayed the uterus and ovaries are removed so there no chance of pyometra developing.
