• Can bleeding and diarrhea occur during heat?

    Hi Jasmine, thanks for your question. I recommend that you take your pet into see a veterinarian. There can be some blood leakage from the vagina at the start of a heat cycle but the diarrhea is concerning. If the diarrhea is the source of the blood is can be very concerning. Your vet can talk to you about the potential causes for this after they have examined her. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause of her symptoms.
