why is my pregnant dog leaking clear fluid

Customer Question

she is supposed to be having her puppies anytime this week, but she has been leaking clear fluid for the past three days, could this be her water breaking??

It might just be the discharge called 'puppy matter' if its clear and a little sticky.
Usually when the water breaks you get it all at once.
You might want to consider having the vet do an x-ray to make sure the dog is going to be able to deliver the pups naturally. Sometimes an overly large or breech pup blocks the canal. Sometimes two pups try to come at the same time and neither will let the other pass.
