Friend, a bloody vaginal discharge can be caused by many different medical conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination and some testing. But, common causes are: Infection of the uterus, a urinary tract infections, vaginal tumors, bladder stones, etc. to name a few causes. Unfortunately we are very limited as to what you can do at home. There is not much I can recommend for you to try at home that will have a significant therapeutic benefit. The first place to start is with a hands on examination by family veterinarian, urinalysis and xrays. Treatment will be based on exam and test results. If cost is a concern look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.

She has stopped bleeding just a drop or so.
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 7 months ago.

I am happy to learn she is doing better. I would still have her checked by family vet to rule out things like bladder stones. Thank you for the update.
