will my dog still bleed coming off heat if she is pregnant

Resolved Question:

will my dog still bleed coming off heat if she is pregnant?

If she was bred, then she still may bleed some for 1-2 weeks after coming out of heat- this is often due to trauma to the vaginal wall during breeding. After that 1-2 weeks, there should be no further bleeding unless there is a miscarriage.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

unsure if she was breed because she ran away while she was in heat and ended up in pound. her nipples seem to be getting bigger but how long before i will know for sure if she is pregnant

If she got away while in heat, then I would assume she was bred.

After ~ 2-3 weeks, you can get an ultrasound done to see if she's pregnant. If you don't want puppies, then I would just schedule a spay in the next 1-2 weeks and then you won't have to worry about a pregnancy and puppy care.
