Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

With regards ***** ***** question, if Nyx only just had the pups a week ago, this isn't a worry. Dogs can continue to have bloody discharge for a few weeks after delivery of the pups. The only time we'd be concerned would be if she was passing a large volume or the blood had an odor/pus present (a sign of uterine infection). So, if it was just a drop and she is otherwise well we would just monitor her. Of course, keep an eye that she is passing urine normally (no straining, going more often but only passing small amounts), as we can see secondary bladder infections but again a small drop is no worry at all for her a week post delivery.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
