Is the blood definitely from her vulva rather than her anus?

Not sure
Dog Veterinarian: Richard Rawling,

OK, there are several potential causes here.

If the bleeding is from her vulva then it could be simply a case of vaginitis. This is inflammation of the vagina and is not serious but can be caused by bacterial infection.

If she is not neutered then these signs can be associated with pyometra (a womb infection). This can be very serious and these dogs are often very sick, although the signs can vary.

If the blood is from her anus, then a rectal polyp or an anal gland infection are both possibilities.

Some of these conditions are more serious than others and it is difficult to narrow things down without a clinical exam, for this reason I would recommend getting her checked over by your vet.

I just checked the bleeding is from the Vulva
Dog Veterinarian: Richard Rawling,

In that case I would be keen to have your vet investigate whether she has a womb infection or vaginitis, as both of these often require antibiotic treatment and a womb infection can be very serious.
