How Long Should a Puppy's Heat Last?

We recently got a new puppy. She about 8 months old now and she got her first period on Dec 5th. It's been a month now and she is still spotting. Her vulva is still enlarged which I'm assuming will shrink once her cycle completes. She has Renal Dysplasia so I don't know if that is contributing to a long cycle. I'm wondering when her spotting is going to stop. Any help would be great.

21 days is the normal heat cycle. Once the bleeding ends around seven to ten days; a female can begin to mate and in the third week is the waning down time. If your dog has gone past this time period and is still passing blood, I would suggest a vet visit would be in order.

What a beautiful little girl! Since she has Renal Dysplasia, please take her to the vet and don't depend on well-meaning advice from us amateurs. There may or may not be a problem and the vet is the only one who can say for sure. He'll also be able to tell you more about what to expect with her heat cycle.

All pets should be spayed or neutered. It's healthier for the pet, and less stressful for you having to worry about these things. :-)
