Hello!

If the bleeding appears in small drops, she is very likely in her heat period.
You can tell if she is in heat by changes in her behaviour (she is more alert, more nervous and easily distracted), her vulva is swollen, she urinates more often and has vaginal discharge (blood drops).

If both, the inflammation of the genital area and the bleeding are normal, this period of heat can be prolonged, even for three or four weeks.
At this time, as well as when she stops bleeding, try to avoid contact with male dogs to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

However, it is advisable to visit your veterinarian if you notice something disturbing or unusual.

If this is your dog's first heat, we recommend to contact your veterinarian in order to resolve all your doubts and give you necessary guidelines.

All the best.
