My girl Squeeker is in heat. Her genitals have just started to get really swollen. But she has not bled yet. When do they usually start to bleed?
Sorry if this in an obvious question, but Squeeker is my first female dog ever.
I believe it usually starts around the same time they get swollen and the whole thing will last 3 weeks. If she's constantly licking herself I would say she is already bleeding, at least this is how it is with my Daisy. She'll keep herself cleaned up and just put some old towels or blankies down where she sleeps. Hope this helped
