I am sorry to hear Heidi may be in an end of life situation. She is pretty old for a Rottweiler.

Where is the bleeding coming from?

If you lift her lip to check her gums, are the pale?

It is good she will eat a little. When a dog won't eat at all, it is time to consider euthanasia.

Is she spayed? Is the bleeding from her vulva?
