For the love of God NO!...This is not normal!...PLEASE take her to the vet NOW & get her medical care!
& please have her spayed...There are enough poorly bred & unwanted pups filling the shelters already.
WOW!!! if this is serious.. PLEASE go to the vet. How could you have not?
Oh my lord. I agree with the other response. You need to get your dog to the vet immediately. This is definitely not normal and is in fact, extremely dangerous for your dog.
No, it's not normal. Dogs can have a uterine prolapse after mating and that needs to be surgically corrected. We recently saw a cat at our clinic that had kittens and the uterus prolapsed. It was hanging out for a couple weeks before they finally brought her in for treatment. Without the surgery the cat would have died. So... your dog needs to be see immediately, if not sooner.

Take her in right now, log out and just go. This is life threatening when left untreated.

Hello, that is a uterine prolapse. It is VERY SERIOUS and can even result in the death of your dog. Why have you waited three weeks?????? This needs immediate veterinary attention and surgery!

You've got to be kidding me! Is this normal? Uh no. Why would you wait three weeks to take her to the vet? She could have a serious infection. I agree with the others...get her to the vet asap.

Not normal in the least. Vet time. And please take the necessary time to learn everything about dog breeding, at least, before even thinking of breeding her again. It take literally years, including time spent with a mentor, to learn all you need to properly breed a dog. There are many ethics involved as well and you need to make sure that your dog is breeding quality, and thus whether her breed's health will benefit from her being bred or whether the act will just contribute to the breed's unhealth created by ignorant back-yard breeders with innocent intentions.
Breeding is no simple task, and breeding without the necessary knowledge makes it just that much harder.
Actually despite all the other answers which are hugely over excited about it, its not that serious as long as she can go to the toilet. It often happens young bitches & is usually just hormonal & she will go back to normal after coming out of heat. It happened our bitch when she became pregnant & that was four years ago & she is perfectly healthy, without any surgery/ medication. Go to your vet if she is having difficulty going to the toilet immediately if not, wait until her cycle is over. Thats what our vet told us to do.
