How long will my chihuahua bleed after giving birth?


Answer by  emhaskey (685)

The heavy, bright red blood may continue for 2-3 days. You will see smaller amounts of darker red or brownish-colored blood for 2-3 weeks after your dog gives birth. The flow should get weaker. Watch for signs of infection, including a foul odor, decreased appetite, or excessive bleeding (hemorrhage). If you suspect infection, or hemorrhage, call your vet.

Bleeding after giving birth is natural and nothing to be too concerned over, you chihuahua may bleed up to 4 weeks although many only bleed for a few days. There is no reason for much concern as to the bleeding itself, just keep an eye on her to make sure she has no signs of infection.

After giving birth a chihuahua can bleed for up to 4 weeks, but most of the time they will only bleed for a couple days. If the dog bleeds for more than 4 weeks than it would be wise to talk her to the vet. But most of the time the dog will stop bleeding within a week.

Some discharge for a week or so is normal. If there's excessive bleeding, bright red blood or greenish discharge, call your veterinarian promptly.

You will see a discharge for 10 days or so after birth. Typically red discharge changes to darker brown in the first few days and slowly tapers off. Prolonged production of bright red or smelly discharge can be a sign of a problem such as infection or a retained placenta or a clotting issue.
