My 5 year old balck lab gave birth to 5 pups last Thursday, all well and growing at a rate of knots! However, mum seems to be having continuous periods, ie spotting of blood on bed covers, and the odd drip when she gets up for a drink/walk. She seems in good spirits, albeit a little tired. Is the spotting normal? As I say, its been 4 days since the birth. I don't want to take her to the vet if this is normal, let me know thanks.
