This does not sound normal. I am sure you have been through her heat cycles many times, but typically a dog goes through the bleeding phase, then she is fertile at some point in the 2 weeks after she finishes the discharge phase. So, mating during the discharge phase will not take.With persistent discharge that is now brown that sounds like it has lasted longer than a week my concern is she may have developed a uterine infection (pyometra); she should be seen by her vet this week!
We mated her on the right day of her cycle because we had blood test done, to know the exact day, I think that she is pregnant , but concerned about the discharge the last two days
How far along do you calculate she should be?
She will be 21 days today
She needs an ultrasound in the next 24 hours to confirm she is pregnant and that the fetuses are healthy. Many normal pregnancies have some level of discharge and this may be what you are observing, at least I hope. Sometimes this can reflect a problem which is why it is important to be sure the fetuses are okay.
Problems might include loss of the fetuses, infection, trauma after breeding or insemination, etc.
She is booked in for a scan on the 8 th march her discharge is very little and does not smell, she is very well in herself
As long as you feel that she is feeling fine, then you can certainly observe. My recommendation would be to have her checked earlier rather than later to ensure everything is going well. If a problem is caught early, then potentially it can be reversed. However, my hope is that this is normal.
