There's no way to know this for sure. To ease your mind, I'd at least call your vet and explain what's going on.

The average heat is 21 days, but whenever any of my girls were in heat I kept them on house arrest for a month from the first signs of bleeding, just to be on the safe side.

volcano My girl started heat around the same time, she also stinks at times. The first heat it was worse but she stunk some this time too. Mine has stopped bleeding, but if you get a look under her tail you can see shes still swollen. her first heat she bled longer and smelt worse. Shes also extra nice and being a lapdog.

Take her to another vet and take the best treats possible. Make sure she is somewhat hungry. It shouldn't be a reason not have her seen by a vet.

To see blood still on week 3 can be normal, the smell however is not. What color is the discharge? Any change in behavior? An open uterine infection (Pyometra) can come with a smell and can also be fatal if not treated early.

Is she off food? Lethargic at all?

If you are unsure, best to have a vet check it out and get it early if it is an infection.
I think she bled less for a short time, but it never stopped as far as I can tell. She is acting normal, except that she lets me pet her a little more, but she has been doing that for a few weeks. The smell isn't very strong, it's just an unpleasant smell.

lhczth Some females do stink, but it also could be an infection. I would have her checked by a vet.

She started bleeding on the 18th of April, and today she started giving off an awful smell but she is still bleeding( never stopped as far as I can tell). When will it be okay to let her in the yard without constant supervision?
