    My miniature schnauzer is 48 days pregnant. The past few days she has had some vaginal discharge. It does not smell and has only a very light yellow tinge. I have not bred dogs since I was about 12. I can't remember if my other girl did this. I have read in all of my books and gone to all the sites I can find and cannot find the answer to my ?. I know someone here can help.
    Thanks! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    "During pregnancy, you may notice vaginal discharges. Occasional mucus discharge is normal. Even if this discharge is pink-tinged, it is considered normal. If the discharge contains blood or pus, see your veterinarian immediately because it could indicate serious pregnancy complications. And be sure to isolate your dog from other dogs three weeks before to three weeks after delivery to reduce the possibility of exposure to disease. "

    scabatz33 is correct. A small amount of discharge is normal. Be sure to keep watch. I take my prego girls out with some white bath tissue and due a quick wipe after potty to keep an eye on this. Be sure to start taking her temp around day 55. Her normal should be around 101. Get a baseline, then take her temp twice a day until whelp. Her temp will drop about 2 degrees within 24 hours or so of whelp. PM me if you need more info. I breed English Bulldogs. Good luck!
