Take her to the vet ASAP.

Mothers often drip after giving birth and some go into heat right after. But if she is bleeding excessively TAKE HER TO THE VET. Your brother should have alreaday done this. Or he could have called the vet when he first realized the problem and asked them. He would have an immediate response. She is probably anemic by now, check her gums to see if they are pale. Tell him he needs to get her to the vet right away or she could die.

Dogs do bleed for a good six weeks- sometimes more sometimes less. You will find whitish mucusy looking stuff in it too. When my dog had pups a long time ago she bled a noticable amount, it was on the bedding where she slept with her babies and dripped everywhere, similar to her being in heat but a bit more. However, like mentioned before if it is excessive the dog should have already been to the vet. What is your brother doing breeding, obviously he has no knowledge and is not giving proper medical attention..

Placinta comes out just as the pups and the bitch eats it like most animals do. They drip uterine fluids for awhile sometimes pu tp 2 months, they shouldn't be bleeding excesivly. Something could have been pulled/torn in delivery and the dog could bleed to death from internal injuries. The same thing can happen with people, that is why the doctor checks how much the person is bleeding after delivery and before they leave. Also a bitch shouldn't be underweight after having pups. She should be healthy weight. Pregnent and nursing bitches need lots of nutrients.

Bleeding and passing all fluids, and placintas is a normal and healthy sign. Though if she's bleeding more than a few drops constantly, she may be hemoraging.

She should have a healthy bright color of blood, some may have a darker appearance. If you knotice any signs of excessive lazyness, profusly bleeding, or her gums become pale and her nose is warm and dry, take her in immediately.
