Here is a tip for removing blood stains from carpet that some people might be unaware of. My veterinarian actually told me about this when my dog cut her leg on glass. Use inexpensive hydrogen peroxide to remove the blood. I use a small squirt bottle to apply it just where it's needed. It's amazing how this simple solution just dissolves the blood immediately. However, be careful as this could "bleach" out colors.

Use hydrogen peroxide.. pour a small amount and let it soak for about 5 mins., Blot then clean as usual (03/22/2005)
Pour on a little Club Soda and let soak for a minute or two, then blot it up with a wad of kleenex. Do not rub - the kleenex will absorb much better than paper towels or cloth. Repeat if necessary. (03/23/2005)
First rinse the area with cold water. Then hydrogen peroxide will finish the job. I promise (05/13/2005)

Using 3% hydrogen peroxide worked for me. Just pour a small amount and then blot. If it doesn't all come up, pour again and blot some more. The longer the stain has set in, the more blotting it takes.
Please remember to test a spot on your carpet to make sure it doesn't bleach it. My carpet was light and was ok, but a darker color could be bleached by the hydrogen peroxide. (02/01/2006)
