If my female dog got hooked up with another male dog and got pregnant would she continue to bleed or would she stop?

If my female dog got hooked up with another male dog and got pregnant would she continue to bleed or would she stop? I know that she got hooked up but she is still bleeding, does that mean that she didn't get pregnant? Or could she still be pregnant and bleeding?

  • Going into heat is like having a period. If she's bleeding, she's not likely to be pregnant.

  • Actually when dogs come into 'heat' they are in for up to 21 days. Dogs have a cycle in which they go through. Generally they will start out bleeding for about a week and as the time goes their vulva will swell and the blood will become lighter in color. Around days 11 - 15 she will be in what is referred to as 'standing heat', it is at this time that she will be most receptive of a male, and is during this time that she will become pregnant if she is bred. After this part of her cycle she can and may continue to bleed. The bleeding afterwards is not indicative of her not being pregnant, just is a part of her normal cycle. The color of the blood after being bred may become brighter but will again lessen in color and amount until she finishes her cycle around about day 21. So to answer your question can she be pregnant yes indeed she can be. If you are not wanting puppies you canb go and have her given an 'abortion' or spay her

  • I agree, unless you plan on breeding your dog she should be fixed.

  • joju is correct and also they can become pregnant by more than one do during their cycle so have multiple pups from different dogs at the same time.
