Ok, so this is my first female puppy and I had her scheduled to be spayed three weeks ago...well...4 days before that day, she started bleeding...she had just turned 6 months old when she started. My question is, how much longer will this last?? I have read a little bit and I understand there are three cycles to the heat, a bleeding time period, a clear discharge time period (when she is really going to want a male) and then lastly a cooling down period. Since so many people say the whole cycle should last 3 weeks and she's still bleeding and we are at the 3 week mark...how much longer could this possibly last?? I have her rescheduled to go in next Monday, but after reading about how good it is for them to develop there female hormones...should I wait?? It has not been too annoying, we have some little "pooch pants" for her for around the house, and she is not left alone outside. thanks for any comments, suggestions!
