What causes a dog to bleed from his private area?

we noticed drops of blood on the floor about a week ago. did not know where it was coming from. it stopped. but yesterday they started showing up again and it was were my dog was sitting. I forgot to add that it's a male dog.

Your dog is female correct? She is in heat, which means she is ready to breed. It is like menstruation in human girls.

If you do not plan on breeding your puppy, please get her spayed. She will not "bleed" again and she will be healthier and happier.

Didn't see that when I answered.
Take puppy to the vet. A male dog should not be bleeding.

If this is a female dog there isn't any problem.

Female dogs don't menstruate like humans do, so yes it would be a problem.
Report as
yes they do. we had a chocolate lab we had to put a diaper on it was so bad when she got her doggy period

Then you need to have your lab looked at because it should not be that bad. Maybe a tiny bit of mucus, but that mcuh could be a sign of endometrial problems.

Well them our family vet better go back to school. No it's not a strong flow like women get its dripping it spotting. They even make "doggie oaf/pants" for indoor dogs.

Quester, female dogs ovulate like humans do... They bleed when they do, it's NOT a problem!!!
Report as
Well DUH they ovulate. That's funny because our vet(s) and other barn members' vets always told us that bleeding isn't a normal sign... in fact, bleeding where we notice it is typically a sign of bigger problems... especially considering dogs and cats can be so prone to uterine cancer. Usually, it's just mucus, if we even notice it at all.

Uh, no, bleeding is normal... I don't know if your vet is a vet if he/she told you that. If they don't bleed, the blood probably collects and sits in the uterus or something like that. Every single bitch I've owned has bled and believe me, I was startled at the first one until my vet (funny guy. Has every award and certificate he's had in his life stacked on the wall... Even his 8th grade promotion haha) said that it was normal as long as it wasn't a LOT of blood.

Some of the things that could cause this problem include: problems in the colon, colonic tumors, rectal polyps or constipation issues. If you realize that your dog has other symptoms such as diarrhea or patches in the skin, then you need to take precaution. You need to contact a vet for advice as soon as possible.

He might have kidney stones, UTI, etc. Get him to the vet if he's bleeding like that. It is not normal.
