So about 2 weeks ago right when my puppy turned 6 mo. i started noticing some dried red-brownish looking substance around her privates...i was like, what??! So i was assuming it was her going into heat, but now im a little worried because although i have seen a little bit of what looked like fresh blood in the morning once or twice over the last week or so, she doesn't seem to have the other characteristics... how do i know if her "thing" is swollen? It never has looked like it to me. I haven't noticed any other dogs acting differently around her. Today there seems to be some clear discharge, is this normal? How long should she be bleeding? I'm a little concerned that it could be something else (i feel like with Dani, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong!). Poor Dani. I hope im overreacting. I'll think I'll take her in tommorrow to have the vet look, but anyone have any good experience/advice??? Is there something else it could be?
