Hi,
I have bred my female German Shepherd for the first time and had a question about some red to reddish-brown discharge she is emitting. I had read that some discharge like this was normal for up to eight weeks after the pups were born. However, I am new to breeding and wondered if someone with more experience could weigh in on this. It is 7 weeks now and my dog is still emitting a discharge that varies from dark reddish-brown to brighter red. I cannot tell if it is coming from her vagina or from her urinary tract. Is this kind of discharge normal so long after birth? Please let me know.

Ask your vet during the examination

Not normal to me after the first week. Does she have a fever? Does the discharge smell? How is her appetite, behavior and energy levels? I would take her to the vet.

She otherwise is healthy; good appetite, good energy, normal behavior. But I will need to go by the vet if this continues.
