I would take the dog into the vet as sooon as possible if it is occuring frequently, a nose bleed could mean your dog has an infection or possibley something stuck up their nose as well as other problems that could arrise from this condition such as anemia or lethargy from blood loss.

Repeated bloody noses are a serious problem for a dog because they can signal other problems like nasal tumors. Please have your vet check out your pet.

Bloody noses in dogs aren't terribly common, so you should take your dog into the vet to get checked out. Bloody noses might be caused by excessive dryness in your dog's nose, or they could signal something more serious. Especially since they're happening frequently, you should definitely go to a vet to have your dog examined.

Just like people the dog could have allergys causing the bloody nose, or something more serious like something stuck in the nose.

Rocky mountain spotted fever, Von Willebrand's disease, Vitamin K deficiency, nasal tumors, poison consumption, and nose mites can all cause a dog to have a bloody nose. Monitor your dog to be sure that the bleeding stops after a few minutes. If the bleeding does not stop, see your veterinarian.

This is something that needs to be examined by your vet. The fact that your dog gets them a lot makes this an even greater issue.

Bloody noses are not a common occurance in dogs. You may want to have your dog checked by your veterinarian. The dog may need to be tested for platelet numbers or clotting disorders.

They are many reason why your dog might be bleeding from its nose, this situation needs to be assessed by a vet to be certain what is the cause for this, especially when this is occurring many times in a short period of time. The vet would probably do a number of tests.

Well, bloody nose indicates some kind of infection. You should take your dog to the vet and prescribe a prescription.


Answer by  Sauve (435)

If your dog gets them alot, try making sure that it is not the dog's area that is causing the bloody nose. For instance touch the dog's nose and if it hurts, Make sure that your dog is not exposed to too much heat beacuse too much heat puts too much pressure in the air and causes nose nleeds.

You shouldn't be worried. Just grab an ice pack or something cold that will slow down the blood flow in his/her nose. After, visit your nearest veterinarian.
