Bleeding Dog Not An Emergency If

By Blake Hirt

Dogs bleeding in heat is a very common experiencing. However, if you are experiencing what you believe to be an emergency or there is much blood, apply a pressure compress and get to the closest veterinary emergency room. If your dog is experiencing anal bleeding, you should take it to the vet immediately. He/she may have eaten some splintering bones and could have intestinal bleeding. Beware of the friendly neighbor who throws ham or chicken bones over the fence when you’re not watching. My favorite dog was killed by eating the wrong bones from an ignorant, “well-meaning” neighbor.

Menstruation in dogs is different, proper term is “Estrus”. About 6-7 months after birth your bitch will start her heat cycle. The bitch will no have lots of blood, but may drip. Many breeders will put diapers on there bitches during this time to keep them indoors. This prevents unintentional mating and keeps the home clean

Synthetic diapers are not good because they over heat the dog and don’t stay on as well. Seasonals makes a soft cotton diaper that breeders use on their dogs. This have a location for the sanitary napkin, that is replaceable and keeps the diaper in good shape. A good dog diaper should hold up for years.

Replacing a dog diaper with disposable human diapers is a poor choice. You have to wrap it with extra tape just to keep it on, and it may not be very comfortable for your pet. Which means the diaper may not stay on or you have to wrap it with duct tape and then your dog will not be very happy. You can keep your dog in a cage or confined to a small room, but since this lasts for about a month, I prefer the dog diapers for in-house dogs.

Getting your bitch fixed is one solution, but can cost anywhere from $100-$500. The surgery is quite involved and is irreversible, no more puppies. Spaying or getting your dog “fixed” is a serious surgery and can take some time to recover.

Spaying is my least favorite option. Only spay if you are sure you do not want pups someday. Remember that you may feel different years from now and may want to continue the blood line. Dog diapers are cheap, and avoid the trauma of putting your pup through surgery.
