Hello. I'm sorry you got mis-directed to a human physician.
I like to error on the side of caution when I see discharge this late in a pregnancy. If it were green or black, that would be bad. The bloody discharge could be the signs of a miscarriage coming on. I would want to stick the ultrasound probe on her just to make sure our fetal heart rates are still doing ok. If any of them are dropping or if there is a dead puppy in there, that could explain the discharge. It could also be some vaginitis or even a mild urinary tract infection. That would be the best case scenario.
If you want to wait until your regular vet is open on Saturday, that is fine. If you notice any contractions or increased discharge or a change in color to dark or green, then I would go in right away.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
Good. If it stopped on it's own, then it was unlikely to be anything significant.
