Hello!

Some female dogs show excessive bleeding during the phases of proestrus and estrus (heat fases), but it is important to rule out any medical problems that may be responsible for excessive bleeding and for being longer than usual, such as ovarian cysts.
We recommend to take Carolina to the vet so they can evaluate her better. It may be necessary to perform a blood test to assess the general condition, and abdominal ultrasound to be able to observe the ovaries in case of structures compatible with cysts. In some cases it is also advisable to perform a hormonal measurement and a vaginal smear as more complete assessment.

All the best for you and Carolina.
