You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. The most likely reason for the bleeding is that she's currently in heat which will last 9 - 20 hours. If the bleeding persisted longer than that, a bleeding tumor may be present in her genital tract. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

I'm just following up on our conversation about your pet. How is everything going?

Good to hear. That's consistent with heat.
