Typically the most common cause of bleeding from the vagina may be a bladder infection. This may cause a dog to have blood seeping into the urine. If the bleeding is serious, it may be time to have the dog examined by a vet. The vet may be able to run blood tests, this may also rule out certain bleeding disorders or bladder infection.

The dog may also start to show signs of bruising or red spots on the skin or gums.

  • My 13y/o boxer went through a senior check up a couple days

    My 13y/o boxer went through a senior check up a couple days ago and they noticed a spleen tumor. 8 months ago the internal medicine specialist did an ultra sound and said his spleen was normal. They did some sort of a test by inserting a needle. At that time all of his tests were great. The only problem he had was that he would breath heavy which they said was because of his old age. Would it be possible for his spleen to have such a large tumor on his spleen in just 8 months?? The doctor is not yet sure if the tumor is benign or malignant. All she said was that it would be dangerous because it can rupture. We give him rymadyl because of his arthritis. Is that dangerous to his health?? Can we give that to him everyday or just as needed for pain??
