Can you clean her leg to the point you can find out what the cut, or whatever is causing the bleeding, looks like?
c
Edit: That way you can tell if the injury is clean, inflamed, infected.....etc. Just very gently take some warm water and remove the blood, and then some back and tell everyone what the injury looks like, Or...better yet...get a picture of it if you can.

Before panicking and going to the Vet If I see an injury I clean it and asses how bad it is. If it is just a scratch I clean it well and leave it be and just monitor it.

If you have never seen a cut before, you really need to take the animal to the vet, because you do not have anything to compare the cut too.
