What Should I Do if my Pet is Bleeding?
External bleeding can have many causes that range from trauma to poisonings to infection and other internal diseases. A pet that is bleeding should always be evaluated by either your veterinarian or an emergency clinic. As some of these bleeding causes can be life-threatening, evaluation and treatment of the cause of bleeding should never be delayed. Do not try to administer any medications that your veterinarian has not advised you to because many medications can interfere with your veterinarian’s treatment plan. If you are aware that your pet has ingested toxins or anything out of the ordinary, make sure you let your veterinarian know how much was ingested and when. If your pet regularly takes other prescribed or over-the-counter medications, also let your veterinarian know this information.
My pregnant dog is bleeding from her vagina
Bleeding may be related to another cause if our dog is pregnant. The emission of blood through the vulva during pregnancy can indicate serious problems such as a potential miscarriage. Dogs should not bleed from their vulva during pregnancy, so you will need to take them to the veterinarian immediately.
The only exception for healthy bleeding during pregnancy is when it is a sign the dog is about to go into labor. If our dog is in the final stretch of gestation, light bleeding from the vulva accompanied by mucus and other fluids may indicate that the time of delivery is approaching. During the development of the pregnancy, light bleeding is normal as long as it is not an excessive amount. Excessive bleeding is a reason for veterinary consultation.

Why is my female dog bleeding when she is fixed?
A bloody discharge from the vulva is a normal part of a female dog’s heat cycle. Dogs typically go into heat and bleed between 1-3 times a year. However, if your dog has been spayed or you know it is not time for your intact dog to go into heat, the bleeding could be a sign of a potentially serious health problem.
