A little spotting is normal. Bleeding is not normal.
Because they are pregnant with multiple babies, they can often abort one and you will see some bleeding.
Your best bet is to see the vet to rule out a bigger problem. This would also be a good time to deworm the mom if you have not done so already.
Did the vet run any bloodwork? Is the dog showing any other signs other than spotting??DR.V
If you want you can let me know the results of the bloodwork and I can help from there.
It is too early to be anymore aggressive than that. Pyometra wouldn't really be a ruleout at this point...and with the breeding only being less than 2 weeks out, not even an ultrasound would show you much as far as fetal presence of life. Right now there may be small amounts of fluid in the uterus...but too early to do much else.
Now...in a couple more weeks if the dog is sick..pyometra will become a possibility. Breeding, in my experience does not cause pyometra any more often than other causes. There are many factors that go into breeding so the best thing for now is to look at the bloodwork.
If she is acting normal, aside from some spotting and the bloodwork looks okay...you can pursue an ultrasound in 2-3 weeks to determine if she has vital puppies.
