Discharge during pregnancy in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Discharge during pregnancy in dogs


Avatar_n_tn This is a classic "False Pregnancy" symptom. That condition is caused by a surge in hormones, and usually happens about 8-9 weeks after a 'heat' cycle ends. It almost definitely will recur throughout her life. Sometimes symptoms of False Pregnancy are mild, and cause little trouble, occasionally they are severe, and affect the dog's behaviour, and well-being.
306389_tn?1213491296 Brown blood is old blood which isn't something to be too concerned about. I bled for 5 weeks bright red during this pregnancy and everything turned out to be okay. I believe everything should be okay for you and that on Monday you'll see your little bean okay in there!
787406_tn?1339206783 Is it normal for a female dogs breast to harden during a false pregnancy? She has had 2 heats between January 7th and May and is now going through a false pregnancy. her breast are hard around the nipples, but no fever. Everytime we were ready to spay her she dropped back into another heat. 3 days ago i took her to get a baby booster and she started acting weird when i got her home, she hasn't eaten anything and up until today hasn't drank by herself, substituting with gatorade from a syringe.
Avatar_n_tn And when I clean it with a q-tip there's like brown discharge on it. I don't know what to do. My doctor isnt even here he's in my hometown. Any suggestion? Please help.
562815_tn?1222055860 It's possible (although not likely) that she didn't conceive when she was bred and is having a false pregnancy. Cats and dogs that have false pregnancies exhibit all the signs that an animal having a normal pregnancy would, but the fact that you say she is acting like she's in season again is odd. It certainly bears looking into. If she is pregnant, it would have been safer to spay her and abort the litter than it would be for a cat that young to deliver a litter.
Avatar_f_tn Taking her to the vet is real advice. Yes, small dogs can have complications during birth, especially if the puppies have large heads. Do you know what breed the father is?
Avatar_n_tn ) Steph, I feel ok getting real sore in the vag area with a lot more discharge. Doctors did finally put me on Prevacid for the heartburn and some pain pill for the bad headaches. They said that both are so severe due to the high blood pressure. I just want her to cook a lot longer before she has to come on out.
Avatar_n_tn There's actually not a great deal of difference in early pregnancy except that the symptoms of pms usually go away when AF arrives or just before/after. Whereas pregnancy symptoms not only continue but increase in intensity. Hope this helps and good luck with finding out!
Avatar_n_tn I also have a BC uterus, I had spotting and bleeding a few times during my pregnancy and every week I had to go for my US (exept I had two clots in my uterus around MY BABY and the placenta area and later my cervix started to open). Every week my perinatal specialist confirmed that my BABY was PERFECT, very strong and active with a normal heartbeat. As I mentioned before, my bledings weren't so heavy as yours, exept for the last one which I had the night before my miscarriage.
Avatar_n_tn No hormone altering medication or menopause or change in birth control. There is no change in discharge or smell. I will keep ya'll posted on what I find.
Avatar_n_tn The one thing I noticed when I finally tested postive was that there was a noticable difference in the way my urine smelled. My mom (who's a nurse) told me it was the pregnancy hormone's finally in my urine. The doctor also advised to test early in the morning because that can be your strongest time of day. If you drink a lot during the day your urine will get diluted. But for some of you it seems unbelievable to be testing 2 weeks after you have missed a period.
Avatar_n_tn What do you mean when you say that a positive blood test doesn't mean a successful pregnancy? My blood test came back positve on Aug. 8 with a HCG level of 302 then I had to go back on Aug. 10 and my HCG was 708. I took another one yesterday but my doc hasn't called me back with the results. So, should I still be worried???? mrsstr- Good luck to you and I hope that your bpt come back positive.
1285651_tn?1319646029 I know we all want to get pregnant so bad that we might have imaginary symptoms because we want them so bad. I know I'm guilty of that. I havent had any pain in my chest during O it was just some cramping. Hang in there girl just a little over a week left. Sending positive vibes your way. AngellaHas2 - Clomid will definitely increase the amount of CM that you see. I can tell after my second pill that it's increased. This month I had so much CM (sorry if tmi) after pill 4 I thought I was O-ing.
961574_tn?1449149056 Well this happened twice to me during my pregnancy. My point do not give up pray and if it is meant to be it will be! I now have a little girl who is my whole life! And I hope to give her a brother or sister soon!
525485_tn?1314364901 I know Gina normally posts this, but it looks like our last weekly check in was over a week ago, so I figured I would post just incase little Caiden decided to join the world and she wont be on! That would be pretty cool?!! So, how is everyone feeling? At this point, some of us already have our little one's in our arms...and many of us are very anxiously awaiting to see when ours will come!! Update everyone ladies...and let us know how you are doing!!! For me....I am sick of the tests...
567488_tn?1244744266 Because my job is so stressful I decided to stay home this week. Don't know if that is a good idea. I go in for a pregnancy test on Monday...so please keep me in your prayers. I had 4 IUI that failed now we are on IVF and I am praying that it takes. I am doing this on my own, no husband. I decided at 38 that I wanted kids and a prospect(husband) wasn't in the cards for me at the moment. Keeping that in prayer also. But anyway, I am trying to stay relaxed, I have mild cramps...
Avatar_f_tn Hi, I did a day 5 ET with 2 blast. On days 6-8 I had some mild cramping which my RE said could be from implantation. Then on the day before my Beta test I had some nausea during the afternoon. Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
Avatar_n_tn I really didn't cramp right after the iui but I did start cramping that evening I have been cramping on and off since sometimes it more like ovulation pains in my right ovaryIi go back this Thursday 14th for pregnancy test.But at other times it's like menstral cramp.Then at other times there is no cramping at all.I do pray that this one is it.I believe that maybe I'm where I'm at because God needed me to be there.
Avatar_n_tn I was told bleeding during pregnancy is normal but for dogs, but I cant find any information to confirm that. Can someone clarify?
Avatar_f_tn What causes a very strong vaginal odor during pregnancy? Does anyone else have this problem? I'm only 7 weeks in and hopefully this doesn't last the whole time.
800104_tn?1251389837 Yes it is. In dogs, it's not exactly the same as a Menstrual Period in Humans. For a start, it's the other way around in dogs. It is the equivalent of their "ovulation". Her "Heat" cycle will last approximately 21 days (3 weeks) The first week, you will notice drops of red blood. In the second week, her vulva will swell slightly, or may look reddened, so don't worry if you see that -and the bleeding will not be so obvious.
7450908_tn?1390999921 After about a month and a half, the dog's weight will ordinarily substantially increase (sometimes by as much as 50% of the pre-pregnancy weight). The normal length of pregnancy in dogs is about 65 days. Your vet will be able to determine whether your dog is pregnant after about day 25, as they can perform an ultra-sound to confirm the situation. Experienced vets can also palpate the dog's abdomen around day 20 and give a fairly accurate diagnosis. Hoping this helps.
Avatar_f_tn ). Some symptoms show up during this pregnancy and some others, each pregnancy is different. I love to talk about pregnancy and birth. Sometimes I think that if my husband had more reliable work hours, I would have become a labor delivery nurse...so ask away :) Good luck and keep me posted...I would love to hear how it all comes out.
Avatar_f_tn If at any time during a pregnancy there is blood or discharge that looks like blood, you should call the doctor. It could also be implantation spotting, which I have read on numerous articles is normal during the 6th week of pregnancy. The pain could be because of your uterus growing or it may be something else. But to just be safe, I would call the doctor and let him or her know.
Avatar_f_tn If you are not a professional breeder, and have little money -ie no money to support a litter of pups in the future, for vets fees in pregnancy, or expensive emergencies (which can happen) -then the wisest thing to do for her is get her spayed. And there are many low-cost spay/neuter clinics. You could check that out? One thing that can happen with a female who has a history of false pregnancies -they can get what is called 'Pyometra' in later life.
Avatar_f_tn There is normally no discharge during a pregnancy. If you do see a discharge, then take her to the Veterinarian. She may have an infection, or be losing the litter, or have developed a case of Pyometra, which, if left untreated, can kill her.
Avatar_n_tn I know that some women do have bleeding and spotting during pregnancy, but it's usually now accompanied by cramping. I hope everything's OK when you go and see your doctor later today!
Avatar_f_tn Neither dog seems to be having an issue. My first girl that it happened to is due in a week. Her pregnancy is going well and no issues have come. I do plan to call the vet to ask about all of this and hope to post back to inform others of what it might be. The blood is not dis-colored or smelly or anything it is bright red like a cut kinda watery not thick.
Avatar_f_tn This must be that lab and that post coupled with this one makes me really nervous for the dogs in your home. Sometimes knowing our limitations when it comes to children and pets is important for all involved. Perhaps adopting out this dog to a home in which they have time a patience to train her would be best for all (including you as you sound like you have your hands full.
