get her to the vets in the morning if the blood she`s loosing is red rather than brown or greeny coloured.

she needs checking over asap. could be a small tear inside or worse

i tried but they said they said they didnt have appointment untill wednesday and they said because shes been bleeding for 4 days and shes acting normal thats its probably nothing and she could wait but if she ets worse take her to the emergency vets. the vets i go to is fairly cheap and i cant really afford to go to any others because i had to pay for my male and my female dogs to get neutered which was a pretty penny anything else i could do to check for if not ill just have to take to another vets cant leave her if its something bad

a greenish colour discharge for about 24 hours after birth is normal and this changes to a brownish red blood colour discharge that can go on for a few weeks (reducing as time passes) this brownish red discharge goes on for longer if she had a big litter as it originates from the individual placenta sites. tbh with you my girls always see a vet within 24 hours of having their litters.

Have you bred dogs before?
