    My advise would be that if you are concerned, to take her to your vet. I've never had a mated bitch have a brown discharge - I would go to the vet.

    I've just found this - as the others say it might be something or nothing, but I really would get her to the vets ASAP

    ======================================================

    B. canis infections in pregnant bitches will typically cause spontaneous abortions between 49 and 59 days after breeding, however, infections may also induce early spontaneous abortions with resorption of the fetuses, result in stillborn puppies, or cause death of puppies shortly after birth.

    A bitch that aborts a litter due to B. canis will demonstrate a brown or greenish-gray discharge that contains a large number of bacteria that will be infectious to both dogs and humans.

    Extreme caution, therefore, should be used when caring for a bitch suspected of harboring B.canis. At such point, collection of the vaginal discharge and specific culture testing for B.canis is usually sufficient to obtain the diagnosis.
