How much blood are you talking about? And is it bright red or brownish?
post #4 of 17
A little bit of blood is normal for about 10 days or so after delivery. But it should only be a few drops.

yesterday she had dry blood that was already clotted up and dry and crusty, but thats gone and now very wet bright red flowing blood, what should i do?

That sounds like too much blood to me to be normal.

It is time to check with the vet. Do you have the number of the Emergency Clinic nearby you?

I think she needs to be seen by an emergency vet if at all possible.

Call your vet- spotting is normal, flowing blood after a birth generally indicates a problem. To stay on the safe side call your vet.

I would call an emergency vet now. She needs a vet ASAP

Looks like it is almost 3pm there (Perth)...please call the vet now and see if they want you to bring her in (with the kitten?) This could be serious.

I found this link for a Vet Hospital in Perth, they have 5 or 6 locations and are open 7 days a week. Just scroll down the left side of the page and they have the different locations, phone numbers, etc. Just trying to help, iif you have trouble getting your cat seen:

Holly still has a tiny amount of blood but alot less than yesterday, Holly is eating HEAPS now and yes she was constipated but all better now! Little bubby Pj is doing great, Holly still hasnt left him for more than 1min to gulp food and if someone goes near she is back there so fast....its a beautiful thing to watch them so protective. My heart goes out to those who have lost a kitten or Two nature can be cruel but I have always beleived everything happens for a reason..

I am glad that she is doing better and is eating. Hang in there are kids have to grow up sometime.

I seem to remember that 5 - 10 dime sized drops of blood a day is what my cat had. I don't know if it was all at once or spread out - so keep your eye out and let us know how she does!
