Hello, I looked over the question you sent.
This is not a case that requires a visit to a vet clinic or the ER. However, you need to keep a close eye on it.
Female puppies usually go through estrus about 2-3 times a year. Estrus lasts about 2 to 3 weeks, and menstruation lasts about 1 to 2 weeks in estrus period. Puppies may show signs of behavior changes (irritability, aggression), lethargy, crying, and loss of appetite during this period. So please observe your dog's condition more. Please check if she shows any other abnormalities or symptoms.
Please do not hesitate to ask any further questions you may have. Thank you.

(The consultation type you select only determines whether or not your pet requires medical attention. If you require a detailed consultation, please ask questions without urgent mode.)
