Need advice

We had Kaia spayed today and she was in heat. She went into heat 2 days ago. But she seems to be doing good but she is bleeding from her vaginal area. Is this normal to still bleed and how long should she continue to bleed? I could care less about the blood, I just need to know if she is ok or has internal bleeding or what? I am being a little neurotic because I feel so guilty for paying someone to cause her pain!

Re: Need advice

Did they give her fluids when she was spayed. If not I would worry that the uterine stump is bleeding.

Re: Need advice

Yes fluids were given during the surgery according to the receipt and vet. What is a uterine stump? what is left of the uterus?

Re: Need advice

Probably all is well but I would call the vet to make sure.

Re: Need advice

Spaying while in heat is a little riskier because everything is more engorged with blood, but vets do it all the time with no problems. There shouldn't be much left in there to bleed as part of the heat. How much blood are we talking about? It's possible that it's just residual and will clear up shortly. If she continues to bleed I'd bring her back in to be checked out. How is the incision looking?

Re: Need advice

There is only a small amount of blood. Just a few drops here and there and when I looked at her to see where it was coming from she had a small amount on her vaginal area but not alot. The incision looks great, its clean no blood or anything.
Thank you all for answering me so fast! This is a first for me so I am a little stressed!

Re: Need advice

Hang in there! I totally understand how nerve wracking it is.

My thinking is to keep an eye on it. The vaginal bleeding should stop soon. If it doesn't, it might be worth running her over to the clinic tomorrow morning if they've got Saturday hours just to be safe. Probably just residual heat blood though. And of course, keep an eye on the incision to make sure it does look inflamed or anything. I'm assuming her energy and general attitude is okay? It's normal (and good) for them to be a bit lethargic post op, but not feverish or unresponsive.

Good luck! She should be back to normal before you know it.
