Our dog had been on heat roughly about a week ago. We had a stud come around and try to breed with her but he never seemed to actually get knotted up with her so we didn't think she was in pup. Then the last 2 days shes gone off her food, her eyes have been weepy and shes been lethargic. We spoke to a vet and they said not to worry that it sounded like she had lethargy give her a few days and she'll be right. Tonight we let her come inside and she was asleep on my bed. We've only just decided to go to bed and he went in to check on her and shes completely soaked in blood all up the back of her legs and on my bed. There are some little clots as well. We gave her some water and she drank it up as if shes dehydrated. Could she be suffering a miscarriage? Its almost 1am now I don't know what to do

Yep they sure can. I would take he in to the vet and make sure that it isn't a pyometra. I had a my best cat slip a litter at around 2-3 weeks that ended in a draining pyometra, so we weren't looking at an emergency, But in all of the pyometras I have seen, that was the only draining one.

Yes, Dogs can miscarry! I would call your vet back or take her into a emergency vet service to have her checked out to make sure an infection has not begun to set up. I hope your dog is okay!!!

I really don't know but I would call the vet, they should be on call or if not and it's possible take her into the emergency vet. I hope your pup is ok!

Yeah, you have time. As long as the bleeding begins to slow or stops all together, and if you are looking at a Pyometra It will not have time between now and the morning to build up enough to cause damage. But just so you know a Pyometra is not curable with drugs it would require a spay to cure it.
Just remember pyometra is rare with breeders on doing a litter or 2. Chances are your ***** will be fine and you can rebreed her on her next heat.

My little girl miscarried pretty far into her pregnancy. She started spotting brown blood. My DH took her straight to the vet and it turned out she had a massive infection because 3 of the puppies were already dead. She ended up having to have a full hysterectomy to save her. The two puppies that were still alive were 2 weeks premature and they didn't end up making it. It was an awful experience and we felt awful for putting her through it. I would get her to vet as soon as you can or at least call the emergency vet and let them know what is happening. Your dog is so early in the process I doubt she would have any of the infection my girl had, but I would still get her checked out when the office opens.
