breed

Q. If my dog went into heat and her teats have been saggy ever since .. Is there something the vet can give her or is it normal ?

A. If she is not pregnant there are medications which can be used to counteract some of her hormones but are unlikely to regain her shape quickly. She may or may not return to her previous shape. If you do not intend breeding her I recommend you neuter her before her next cycle as this is likely to happen more and more each time
