This is not normal during pregnancy. If your dog is otherwise bright and alert and not showing any other signs of illness, you can initially treat the diarrhoea at home. Withhold food for 24 hours. Allow plenty of clean fresh water. You can also provide lectade or another oral rehydration solution to maintain hydration. After 24 hours you can feed a highly digestible low fat meal of cooked chicken and rice. Reintroduce the normal diet over the next couple of days. If the diarrhoea persists, or your dog shows signs of illness, you will have to contact your vet to investigate the problem.

Diarrhea in dogs can be due to stress and pregnancy/delivery are stressful but you should not rely on diarrhea as sign of delivery in your dog as other factors can also cause this. You should look for sign like restless/pacing, agitation, loss of appetite and reduced rectal temperature below 100 F. As diarrhea can cause dehydration, you should get advice from your vet.
