My dog is 6 weeks pregnant and has a clear discharge. Is this normal?

Yes, this is perfectly normal. Sometimes clear discharge can be present from as little as two weeks after fertilisation.

  • This transparant (and usually odor-free) discharge means that the mucus plug is forming inside your pregnant dog.
  • Usually, this mucus plug will be dislodged from the dog about one week before the onset of labor.
  • Once the mucus plug has been dislodged, then the puppies start to arrive, and they're usually accompanied by a greenish-black discharge. This discharge signifies that the puppy has broken away from the uterine wall.
  • If your dog has a greenish-black discharge, but no puppies arrive, then you'll have to rush your pet to a veterinary surgery right away, as this could be the sign of a very serious situation.
  • If your dog's discharge is foul-smelling, filled with pus, or very bloody, then this could be the sign of a serious infection. If this is the case, then a trip to a vet will again be necessary.

It is probably her body getting ready for the babies. Keep and eye on it and then if it gets worse I'd call my vet and describe it to them.

Small amounts of clear, maybe shiny or pearly discharge sometimes? Yes, that's pretty normal. Other colors are a concern though.
