Your assessment results for:

Bleeding – Vulva

Urgency level: Low priority

Monitor your dog at home and contact your family veterinary practice if the situation doesn’t improve

What to do next

Monitor your dog for any changes in behavior

  • Monitor your dog closely for any new symptoms or changes in behavior. If the dog becomes very lethargic, distressed, or the bleeding becomes heavy, contact your regular veterinary hospital.


Why it’s lower priority

Dogs in heat will usually have some bloody discharge from the vulva

  • Based on what you’ve selected, your dog could be having a normal heat. It is normal for them to lose a small amount of blood when this happens. Your dog does not require veterinary attention.
  • You can expect some behavior changes such as restlessness, nervousness and increased attention from other dogs.



Home care tips

Use a diaper on your dog as needed

  • You can use a diaper to prevent your dog from spreading blood in the home.
