What is Vaginal Discharge?

When your cat is suffering from vaginal discharge, she may groom excessively, suffer from loss of energy or appetite, and in some instances, act perfectly normal other than abnormal discharge.  When your female cat is suffering from vaginal discharge, you may also notice a change in behavior towards her from the other cats in your household, especially any male cats present.

Vaginal discharge in cats is a broad symptom that can be caused by a number of underlying conditions.  Many of these conditions may be life-threatening, and it is important that you bring your cat to your veterinarian for a full examination if vaginal discharge is occurring. 

Symptoms of Vaginal Discharge in Cats

While the symptoms vary depending on the underlying cause, vaginal discharge in your cat is always characterized by an abnormal discharge from the vaginal area.  The discharge may come in various colors and consistencies, depending on the underlying cause.  A breakdown of the potential symptoms to watch for includes:

  • Vaginal discharge either clear (mucus) or pus-like, potentially accompanied by blood
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Excessive Grooming
  • Excessive Thirst
  • High Temperature
  • Excessive Attention from Male Cats

Causes of Vaginal Discharge in Cats

Vaginal discharge in cats tends to be a symptom, or an indication of an underlying disease, infection or other condition.  There are, however, several common causes of vaginal discharge in cats.

  • Pyometra, a potentially life-threatening infection of the uterus, typically found in unsprayed adult female cats
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vaginosis
  • Foreign bodies
  • Certain warts or other growths
  • Injury due to trauma or copulation

Diagnosis of Vaginal Discharge in Cats

In order to diagnose the cause of vaginal discharge in your cat, the veterinarian will first need a detailed medical and lifestyle history of your pet.  Some of the important information you will need to gather includes whether your cat is spayed and whether they are an indoor/outdoor cat or exclusively indoors.  You should also make a note of when the discharge began and provide a description of as many additional symptoms as possible.  Changes in eating, sleeping or drinking habits will be especially important.

Your vet will conduct a thorough medical examination of your cat.  Temperature and any sensitivity to pressure to the pelvic area will help determine if there is an infection of the uterus or related organs.  Your doctor will also ask for bloodwork to determine white blood cell count, especially if there is pus or a bloody discharge.

The physical exam may also include scoping with a miniature camera or other optical device, to determine the presence of any injury or foreign bodies.  This may require that your cat be mildly sedated depending on temperament.  In the case of obvious infection, your vet will seek to make a quick diagnosis, as this condition can be life-threatening.

Treatment of Vaginal Discharge in Cats

Since vaginal discharge in cats can have a variety of causes, treatment will be tailored as much as possible to the underlying disease or condition.  

Treatment of Infection, or Pyometra

If the underlying cause of the vaginal discharge is diagnosed as pyometra, or an infection of the uterus, your vet will have several courses of treatment to recommend.  The least invasive course of action involves hospitalization and administering drugs that induce your cat’s uterus to contract and eliminate the infection.  Antibiotics are then given to attempt to prevent infection from returning.

The second course of treatment for pyometra is surgical, in which a spay procedure is performed and the entire uterus is removed.  The doctor will take care to not nick or puncture the uterus which would spread the infection throughout your cat.  It is important to note that while this may be the more invasive procedure, it also produces the highest rates of recovery as the condition cannot recur once the uterus is removed.

Treatment of Other Causes of Vaginal Discharge in Your Cat

Treatment of vaginal discharge in your cat in cases other than infection can range from physical removal of a foreign object to management with medication.  In the case of injury, your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic cream to prevent additional infection of the area.  In the case of a UTI, oral antibiotics can also be administered.

Recovery of Vaginal Discharge in Cats

As long as treatment is sought quickly for your cat’s vaginal discharge, the prognosis for recovery is very good.  In the event of treatment of pyometra via a spay procedure, cats are typically able to return to their normal routines shortly after returning home.  It will be important to completely administer any medications and to return to your veterinarian at the correct time to have any stitches or staples removed from the incision site. 

In the case of a UTI, foreign body or other minor injury, time is on your side.  Given enough time and properly administered medications, your cat’s injury will begin to heal over the course of several days to a week.

Off white discharge

My cat is 2 years old...she was in heat for a little over a week and I noticed that I didnt see her most of the day yesterday. She now has a off white discharge was wondering if being in heat caused it. A few weeks ago she was acting weird and trying to show me something...like if she was to have babies (shes not fixed but stays inside) but there was nothing there. shes a small cat so I would of seen if her belly got bigger. She seems to be eating and drinking.

Thank you for your email. Vaginal discharge is never normal in a cat, and can be a sign of infection or a problem. It would be best to have her seen by your veterinarian, and possibly spayed, to prevent larger problems. I hope that all goes well for her.

I have an 11 month old cat and she's in heat. Ive noticed that since shes been in heat, she's had a clear liquid vaginal discharge. I thought it was urine but theres no real smell to it. can you tell me what it might be and if its normal?

A clear liquid is normal in cats in heat and isn’t anything to be worried about unless it turns white or has a fetid odour. This may occur for sometime during and for a little time after her heat cycle. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

My Persian cat is 1 year 8 months old. She is having a yellowish white discharge. She was in heat a month ago and the vet gave her a shot and she was all okay. But today I found that she is having thick yellowish white discharge. What it can be? Is it dangerous or something? I'm afraid

Hi,My name is Janet My mom cat is not eating or drinking anything and she is losing weight also has a like a bad smell and also it looks like if she leaking on her bottom

No

My cats pregnant and is having her babies in about a week, she has this brown little ball hanging from the hair on her vagina. I got one off of her before a few weeks ago Ive tried to search what it could be but no luck is it normal? I'm guessing it was discharge from pregnancy? It's not red or green and she doesn't smell. Just a little brown ballish thing. I just would like to know if it's maybe serious so I can make arrangements to send her to the vet. I'm very short on money and am expecting as well but will take her if it's an emergency.

My Siamese is 6 months old and went into heat a couple weeks ago, 3 days ago she has had some light pink discharge dripping on bed and blankets and floor none yesterday and back again today. she is acting normal eating and drinking and using litter box (inside only cat no other pets). I have an appointment to get her fixed on 5/5. Is there something I should worry about or is this part of heat cycle?

I have a stray cat that Ifound a home for. I took her to the vet about two weeka ago and they said her health appears good in unrinary/reproductive but they were not 100 percent sure she was pregnant. she looks pregnant becuase her belly has grown, has a bigger appetite, and he nipple are pinker and larger. I saw that she has some light green mucus is her vagina. she has an appointment to get spayed next week. I don't know if i should take her to the vet since they said she was healthy two weeks ago, but she has some green mucus in her vagina, so I don't know if she is sick or it's normal

I have at 2 year old cat female who is having vaginal discharge is a whitish yellowish color and I was wondering if it's safe for her

Thank you for your email. Without seeing the kittens or seeing the fluid, I'm not sure what that might be, but it does sound unusual. Cats don't have any discharge when they go into heat, and they are quite young to be having any other urogenital issues. It would be a good idea to have her seen by your veterinarian to make sure that she is okay, and if you happen to have a picture of the fluid, that might be helpful as well. I hope that everything goes well for her.

5 months old kitten that went in to her first heat. My bf thought it was a good idea to probe her with q-tip Vaseline to get her over her heat.

Thank you for your email. In the probing that your boyfriend did, it sounds like he probably introduced some bacteria, as that isn't a normal procedure for a cat to go through. She needs to be seen by your veterinarian sooner than 2 weeks, as if she does have an infection, it may worsen dramatically by then. Many clinics offer a 'free first exam' that you may be able to take advantage of. Also, I'm not sure if you have thought about having her spayed, but that would help resolve all of these problems! I hope that she is okay.

I just took her to the vet and was only able to afford to get her antibiotics. But after one day of taking clavamox she now has bloody discharge- shoukd that be concerning or just wait till one week of antibiotics to be finished

She needs to be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Discharge is always concerning; but it is more concerning if there is a foul smell, fever, increase in thirst and urination or other concerning symptoms. It would be best to have Queenie spayed as soon as possible and if the origin of the discharge is the uterus, spaying would resolve it. You should still have your Veterinarian take a look at her since she is having frequent heat cycles coupled with discharge. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Vaginal bleeding

My cat has been spayed and is older but she is bleeding from vaginal area and the vet has done blood tests, urine tests and yesterday an ultrasound . She still cannot give me the reason. All I have is maybe uterus or liver. $600 later I feel as though I still have no diagnosis and am very frustrated. She recommended liver biopsy but I don't know if this is the way to go with an older cat, 11 yrs old and inside only, she has never lived outside. Also, not long ago she diagnosed her with hyperthyroidism so I wonder if these could be related. Any help would be appreciated because I don't want to put her down if this can be fixed. Bleeding is what I would consider quite a bit, also clots of blood.
Appetite is good but thirsty all the time.

Thank you for your email. I"m sorry that Sprout is having these problems. Without seeing her, I have a hard time commenting on what might be going on, but if she is spayed, her uterus is not there. She may have an infection or cancer of her bladder or vagina, which should be evident on ultrasound or by testing her urine. I am not sure what her liver values were on her blood panel, so I cannot say if a liver biopsy would be the next best test to try and figure out what might be going on with her. It is unlikely due to her thyroid condition. I wish that I could give you more information - it would be worth getting a clearer picture of what your veterinarian thinks is going on so that you understand the purpose behind the tests, and if you are getting closer to figuring out what is causing this bleeding. I hope that Sprout recovers okay.

Only when my cat is in heat she meows very loudly about 4 to 6 times a day. Which isn't to bad, but recently I have noticed something like water drops coming out of her vagina and it only happens when she’s in heat for about 2-3 days and it goes away. Is itt serious or is it like some kind of precum?

Thank you for your email. Zoe may have a bladder or uterine infection and she should be seen by your veterinarian for an examination. She may need antibiotic therapy, or she may need to be spayed to prevent a life threatening uterine infection. Spaying Zoe is actually much better for her health generally, as it prevents some types of infections, cancers, and behavior problems. Before you breed her, also, please keep in mind all of the homeless cats that are born every day, and the number of those cats that end up being euthanized. I hope that Zoe is okay.

Hi I have a female cat that is approx. 6 yrs old. She's been having vaginal discharge for about a year now so that became normal to us. About a 2 weeks ago I noticed she had gained a significant amount of weight. Today I notice she has slimmed down to an alarming weight where I can feel her bones poking out. I checked where she normally spends her time at and everything was covering in a fluid that looked like it was a mixture of blood and discharge. Please help I don't know what to do.

Having her spayed may be the best option, and may clear up these problems for her, but y our veterinarian will be able to let you know the best treatment. I hope that she is okay.

I have an 11 year old cat, indoor her whole life, not spayed, and has had the same diet her whole life. She is considered obese but her age and arthritis are an issue in losing weight. We noticed recently that she has a yellowy/green discharge coming from her vagina and has two white spots on her anus (i assume are hemorrhoids?). It also gives off an extremely foul odor but doesn't seem to be causing her any pain. I'm at a loss so far as to what it could be.

Janelle may have a uterine or bladder infection, and should see a veterinrian as soon as possible to be examined and treated, as some of those infections can become life threatening quickly. The white spots may be her anal glands, and those sometimes need to be expressed to get rid of that foul smelling fluid, especially in older, obese cats, as they can't groom themselves as well. Your veterinarian will be able to look at her and determine what is going on with her.

So we noticed that my cat has had a yellowish green viginal discharge, and blood just started last night. I noticed back in October or November that she was vomiting and was very fatigue (slept for almost 72 ours) and wouldn't eat or drink, I tried to feed her some wet food (in her diet) and water, and she took few bites. I also can't take her to a vet due to money problems and I don't know what to do. All the symptoms described above apply to her, and her mood has changed significantly. I'm not sure if she'd be able to live much longer due to this.

She needs to see a Veterinarian so a prescription can be given, we cannot recommend prescription medications without examining an animal. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

She is also unspayed and has gone outside two or three times. We don't allow them in case they get oreganant because we can't afford to take care of kittens and five other cats

I also forgot to mention that she still has mucus coming from there, and bloats in her lower abdomen a lot, and all of our cats have worms. And another female cat tries to mount her every once in a while for some reason, thinking she's male?

Thank you for your email. If she had any kind of problems with her uterus when they removed it, it wouldn't be surprising to have discharge from her vagina right after the surgery, as all of those structures are connected. If the discharge continues, or if she is lethargic or vomiting or having diarrhea, it would be a good idea to have her re-examined, but if she returns to normal activity and appetite, you should be fine to monitor the discharge, and would expect it to decrease.

I've never had a cat before so I apologize in advance if this is a normal thing. Lately my cat has been acting very overly affectionate and a lot more vocal. She has been "waddling" around with her butt in the air. Her vagina looks to be inflamed and not discharging but "wet".

Vaginal Discharge

I have a two year old, long haired cat who started having very strong smelling urine several months ago. She is strictly indoors and was spayed at 6 months. Her hair is so long that she doesn't quite keep herself clean all the time. I make sure to do sanitary clips periodically to help her out and I take her to the groomer occasionally to get a good sanitary shave. I took her to the vet a few weeks ago and she was running a fever but the vet said the bladder felt normal on palpation and IF she had a UTI, it was really early. He gave her an injection of antibiotics and a 7 day course or oral antibiotics which we finished as directed. The urine still smells and upon cleaning her up today, I'm beginning to think that what we thought was fecal material getting into her vagina is actually a brownish discharge. What could it be?

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2492 Recommendations
You should ensure that the area around the anus and vulva is shaved back, even if it looks ridiculous so that you can clearly see if there is vaginal discharge or the vulva is getting contaminated with faecal material. If brown discharge is coming from the vulva, then it may be a case of vaginitis caused by a bacterial infection of the vulva (which may occur due to faecal contamination); it would be best to have a culture and sensitivity test done from a swab of the vulva to identify any infection as well as susceptible antibiotics.

Thank you for your email. Possible reasons for discharge in cats is an infection in her bladder, an infection in the little piece of her uterus that was left after she was spayed, or anal gland discharge. Since I cannot examine Mochi, I have a hard time determining what the discharge might be, but if you have had an x-ray, your veterinarian should be able to give you an idea as to why the discharge is there, what it might be, and whether it is related to the fever. I hope that she is okay.

Our kitten was spayed at 5 months. We started noticing a thickish yellow mucus coming from her vaginal area. Took her to vet at end of Dec. she didn't have a fever. Vet gave her an antibiotic shot. Took her back 2 wks later and saw a different vet. She got another antibiotic shot. We then supplied a urine sample which tested fine. Took her back in 2 wks for another antibiotic shot. That lasted for about 5 wks and mucus is back again. I have a call into vet for next steps.

Dr. Michele King, DVM
Dr. Michele King, DVM
1076 Recommendations
Lily is very young to be having these problems - one possibility that may be going on might be what is called a 'stump pyometra'. When cats are spayed, the uterus is tied off and most of it is removed. There is an anatomic 'stump' left, though, normally. In some cats, uncommonly, that bit of tissue can get infected and need to be removed. An ultrasound may be the next step for her, although your veterinarian will know more as they are able to examine her, and know her history and health status.

I forgot to mention that we have noticed that a pouch/belly has formed. I had looked it up and supposedly cats can get a primordial pouch or apron. Do cats develop a "pouch" that young or do you think it is related to this infection?

My cat stopped eating and having bowel movements a little less than a week ago. Two days ago, we came home to find small puddles of this white milky discharge around the house (bed, coffee table, floor, couch, there was a lot). Yesterday, there was no milky stuff, but a few drops of bloody discharge. She also had a short seizure while I was petting her last night (she froze up and her hind legs wouldn't work for a few seconds) She seems more active and comfortable now and even had a tiny bit of food this morning, but due to a cat that hid the fact she was sick until it was too late, I am a little paranoid. We have no money for a vet right now and I really just want to know if she will be okay until we can afford something. Also I have a feeling a ride in a car would freak her out to no end.

This has been going on numerous times today, and at one point when I picked her up off my bed, I noted about an inch long brownish pink discharge coming out of her. She cleans herself up and carries on as normal...yet she continues to growl/clean several times tonight...very focused on cleaning this area.

1yo female, was spayed at 6 months. have noticed some white, opaque discharge coming from her vaginal opening. Not a lot, but I’ve noticed three times over the past few weeks. Sometimes it has dried and she has left it there. I haven’t noticed excessive grooming of her genital area. I wouldn’t say there is a change in attitude towards other cats, but she doesn’t like to be approached by them too much. The young neutered male tries to chase and/or wrestle with her a little, no more than once or twice a day though. I haven’t noticed any other unusual changes. She doesn’t eat as much as she should but she hasn’t lost any weight and is a healthy weight. Is there cause for worry, or should I take her to our vet? We have an appt. For vaccine updates in about a month and I can ask then if it is not an urgent matter.

It would be best to pop into your Veterinarian before the vaccination visit as Milly may have vaginitis, uterine stump pyometra or another condition causing this discharge; either way it would be best to have her checked over to be on the safe side instead of waiting and it potential turning into something more serious.

Vaginal Discharge

I just picked my female cat up from the veterinarian after having her spayed. When I picked her up out of her carrier, I noticed clear discharge dripping out of her. Is that normal?

Whilst not normal, it may not be anything to worry about; keep checking the vulva for signs of discharge and visit your Veterinarian if it comes in large quantities, smells or is off colour. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

My 2 year old cat has sudden onset of a milky white thick discharge from her vagina. She is constantly licking the area and is very unsettled. She is very vocal meowing loudly. Very lethargic and lost appetite

Since there is thick white discharge coming from the vulva I am concerned about a reproductive infection; this isn’t something you should wait before visiting your Veterinarian, you should visit immediately for an examination to confirm and treat the infection. This may become life threatening if not treated. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Discharge

Hi,
I have an un-spayed cat who is experiencing quite a lot of bloody discharge. She will tense her stomach and then it will all leak out of her. She seems fine apart from she isn't eating/drinking.it has happened before but only lasted around 12 hours and then she was back to normal again. She doesnt really seem in pain, but there is an unpleasant smell that is coming from the discharge. Originally I thought she could have been pregnant but a friend has confirmed that isnt the case.
Any help?

Unspayed animals are prone to uterine infections and problems, and she may be pregnant and having complications. She needs to see a veterinarian to be examined, and possibly spayed if she is having uterine bleeding or discharge. I hope that she is okay.

It looks like pus and it's coming out from its bum hole
Thankyou for reading this
I'm not sure if the kitten is a male or female it's abit hard to tell because of the pus looking stuff that is leaking

Kittens are very prone to parasites and infectious disease. If you are noticing a material leaking from the kitten, he needs to be seen by a veterinarian to determine what the fluid is, what is causing it, and how to treat it. I hope that all goes well for him.

Vaginal dischar

My 4 yo spayed female tabby has always been skittish. Has had issues if urinating and defecating outside litter box. Medicated with Prozac. Just this week had bright red blood in stool and just bathed her to remove a black dried substance from outside vagina. Recently changed to grain free food. Also looked like a white substance may be coming from vagina

If you are noticing black dried substance and white discharge from her vulva, and blood in her stool, she really should be seen by a veterinarian. It is possible for even spayed cats to get an infection in the small portion of their uterus that is left, or she may be having another problem. Your veterinarian can examine her, determine what might be going on, and recommend any testing or treatment that she needs. I hope that she is okay!

My cat is 8 months old and has been excessively “talking” during the night and day. She has been cleaning herself much more often than usual and doesn’t seem to want to play with my other 2 cats anymore. Yesterday I checked her butt and she had clear discharge coming from her vaginal area. I’m not sure if maybe it is a uti or not but her attitude has changed immensely. She is not spayed and my other 2 cats are females.

Sarafina may be coming into heat, or may have a bladder infection. It would be best to have her examined by your veterinarian to make sure that she is okay, and hav her spayed if you don't want her to get pregnant.

My spayed cat is 2 years has some brown vaginal discharge. The discharge is thick and sticks to her fur, I don’t know how long she’s been had the discharge but I just noticed today. She hasn’t shown any weird symptoms and my other two cats are acting fine around her as well.

Without seeing Jewels, I'm not sure what that discharge might be, but spayed cats can still get bladder infections, as well as infections of the little piece of uterus that was left when she was spayed. She may need treatment for this before it gets worse, and it would be a good idea to have her examined by a veterinarian. I hope that she is okay.

My cat is spayed, but she randomly sprays from her vaginal area and it is a grey-ish white with quite the powerful odor to it. Is that normal? She doesn't act any different then she has before.

It is not a normal behaviour and is concerning if it is foul smelling, i.e. not what we would expect from normal spraying. You should get Keeta examined by your Veterinarian to be on the safe side in case there is something more serious occurring. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

This most certainly is an infection, especially if she is intact; you should visit your Veterinarian for an examination and treatment before it gets any worse. There isn’t anything which you can do at home which would be effective. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

I just noticed vaginal discharge in my 2.5 year old spayed cat. It was thick yellow and puss-like. I would say that the amount was silimar to a large raindrop. I haven't noticed any changes in appetite or behavior. Her bathroom behavior seems to be normal as well, but I have 2 cats so it's hard to tell. She also has not been excessively licking the area.

Vaginal Discharge
My cat is 14 and she was laying on the couch recently and I noticed a wet spot after she moved. I checked to see if it was pee, but definitely not the smell of urine. I think she had some vaginal discharge, but I don't understand why. She was spayed when she was very young. It's been extremely hot recently and she stuck to one spot pretty much for a few days, but she seemed back to normal. Any thoughts on why she would have the discharge?
