my dog is bleeding after giving birth eight weeks ago Is this normal

This answer was rated:

my maltese gave birth to 4 pups no problems that was 8 weeks ago but she is still bleeding a little . but doesnt seem to be in any pain.


I would have the vet check out your girl....8 weeks is a bit excessive. She may just have a bit of infection going on that will need antibiotics to clear up. There is also a disease called Von Willebrand Disease that can show up after whelping. There is a weblink below for you to check out. :) At any rate, give your vet a call and have him check her out....better safe than sorry. Good luck :)
