Hi JaCustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

It is necessary for me to get a little information from you before I can type up your reply. Your patience is appreciated.

The first step is to determine if the blood is from the vulva or urethra?

You will need to blot the area gently around the urethra at the top of the fold of the vulva to see if it is from the urethra then blot the vulva and let me know which one the blood is from?
