First time...

My 9 month old shepherd started bleeding during her heat cycle about a week ago. I'm wondering if it's normal for her to bleed so heavy for the first time. whenever she gets up from laying down there is a puddle of blood, and when she walks there is a trail of blood drops that follow her. I also have a female lab and she didn't bleed nearly as much her first time, so I am wondering if it's a shepherd thing, or if something else is going on.

I always comment that if you are concerned, get a veterinarian involved.

Having said that, some females are really, really messy while in heat and that is not abnormal.
