    Ive never bred, but usually any discharge of any sort if its yellowish or green in colour can mean an infection. Hopefully someone will be along with knowledge of breeding. In the meantime it would probably be a good idea to just give your vets a ring and ask his advice if they think its anything to worry about or not to be on the safe side.

    I would have her at the vets tonight.... Green discharge is not good. I would be incredibly worried if it was my bitch and would be sat outside the vets demanding that they see her tonight.

    I really think she needs to be seen now, green/dark discharge can mean lots of things..Some not so good outcomes :( Get to the vets and demand that they see her straight away.

    Have you got any other vets, you could get to? Ring back and demand that they see her - she needs checking over.

    Best thing I can suggest then is to try and get a sample, and speed up the process tomorrow, or ring another vet and ask for an out of hours visit... yes it will cost a problem, but it could mean the difference between life and death of all puppies AND your bitch

    It more than likely is an infection, and its possible its caused by a puppy thats died in the womb - aswell as it causing infection its possibly that she will abort the litter. Its a risk you can take if you want - I know if we had rang our vet stating the same, they would have told us to come up straight away! Get your vet to come out and see her....Better safe than sorry with so many lives involved.

    Does not sound good imo Hope bitch is okay and also hopefully she will not need a emergency C section when time comes as your circumstances will make it difficult for you to get her there on time

    My vet once told me to wait until the morning as the symptoms were the same as before. My male llasha x had issues with crystals in the urine. i was crying something i don't do easily BTW and said Rod you don't understand this is different than the other times he's in the bathtub laying down. He was angry but said fine I'll meet you there. My crying saved Toby's life that day as my vet said i will never dispute you wanting to come in again Jill Toby would have been dead in a couple of hours...So call your vet and tell them you are scared s***less cry if you have too.....

    A bit premature at the moment, but have you thought how you would manage if your bitch needs an emergency c section in the middle of the night if you are a single parent and have no one around to look after your children and can't get to the vets?
