MY DOG IS 35 DAYS PREGNANT. SHE IS LEAKING CLEAR FLUID FROM HER VAGINAL AREA. IS THAT NORMAL?
Yes this is very normal and a good sign she is really pregnant. The old time breeders I learned from used to call it 'puppy matter'.
You only need to be concerned if the fluid becomes colored or smells infected which can indicate something is going wrong with the pregnancy.
As she gets heavier she may not be able to reach the area to clean it up so if she gets stuff stuck on the vulva keep it washed off with water to keep the area clean.
