Why does a dog have a milky discharge while pregnant?

Answer

A dog typically has a milky discharge while pregnant as part of the natural chemical cycle of pregnancy. Other reasons include additional hormone build up and illness.

According to PetEducation, it is typical for a dog to have a mucus-like discharge at around 4 to 5 weeks of pregnancy. Such discharge is often just a sloughing off of excess vaginal cells, although a discharge is often one of the first signs of pregnancy. During this time, the dog may have a discharge due to vaginal infection or trauma as well. However, continued discharge during pregnancy  particularly where the discharge is bloody or otherwise color-tainted  may be abnormal. Examination and testing by a veterinarian can help rule out problems with the fetuses or other health conditions.
