Is it normal for a dog to still be bleeding almost 2 weeks after giving birth? and if so, how long does it generally last??

I don't know that one.  It might be best to call your vet on Monday, was she seen after the puppies were born?  I only ask because I have heard that sometimes not all of the puppies are born and if one is left inside it can cause a terrible infection.

Yes; we took them all 3 to the vet the next morning & they stayed for the day. I know it is normal at first, but just not sure for how long... thanks!

Anything up to 6 weeks - just like with humans :), is pretty normal......But, more important is how much is she bleeding and what color is it? Is it very dark red/brown or a watery pink or something in between? If its still very dark (more of a true fresh blood color), then you may want to have her checked.

At first it was very dark... like a blackish red. But now it is alot lighter, like a brighter red. Six weeks huh? and I thought we were the only lucky ones :p
