Hi! Pebbles gave birth Monday (May 20) and she is bleeding now. Just started today, and comes randomly. It is collecting on her tail. Is this normal? Am I okay to clean with warm water and soap?

Just like in humans, the uterus is cleaning out all the supportive blood and tissue that helped the kids to grow. And just like humans, it is heaviest off and on for the first couple of weeks and then tapers off.

That's what I thought. Thank you @groovyoldlady

It's always a little disconcerting to find blood 2-3 weeks after kidding! Sometimes even 4 weeks later. It's like the last squeeze out of the uterus. But, it always gives me a pause, uh oh, oh, yeah, she kidded a few weeks or a month ago! Whew!
