What is Vaginal Discharge?

Vaginal discharge is any liquid material that exits the vagina. In dogs, the appearance of additional quantities of this fluid or changes to its appearance can indicate a problem. Common types of discharge include clear and watery, bloody, mucoid, or purulent (containing pus). Each of these types of discharge can signal different conditions, such as infection, physical abnormality, trauma or reproductive issues. Schedule a visit with the veterinarian as soon as possible if you notice your dog dragging their hindquarters, licking the area or experiencing urinary incontinence.

Clinically significant or abnormal vaginal discharge in dogs is a disruption of the natural fluids produced by the body to clean the vagina. This may indicate an infection, injury or foreign body in the vagina. Additionally, it may also signal a secondary infection of the urinary tract.

Symptoms of Vaginal Discharge in Dogs

  • Bloody, mucoid, purulent or watery discharge from the vagina.
  • Bloody or very cloudy urine
  • Difficulty holding urine
  • Excessive urination
  • Fever
  • Behavior changes
  • Reduction in appetite
Types
  • Mucoid (thick and grayish)
  • Purulent (containing yellow or green pus)
  • Bloody (black, red or brown)
  • Watery (clear and thin)

Causes of Vaginal Discharge in Dogs

  • Trauma to vagina or uterus
  • Infection of urinary tract and/or vagina
  • Cancer of the pelvic region
  • Physical defect (e.g. fistula) involving the uterus or vagina
  • Later end of the estrus cycle

Diagnosis of Vaginal Discharge in Dogs

There are many reasons for vaginal discharge to appear, some of them benign and others more serious, so don’t be alarmed by the sudden presence of discharge, but do schedule a visit with the veterinarian. It's important to take quick action and not a "wait and see" attitude. Be prepared to give a medical history to the veterinarian, including any medications, surgeries or breeding activities, including whether your pet has been spayed. Note any sexual involvement with other dogs, regardless of whether breeding was intentional or possible.

The veterinarian will make a physical examination of your dog, checking for fever and signs of illness as well as examining the vagina for trauma, signs of infection, or an abnormality. Heightened vaginal discharge after estrus (“heat”) in an intact dog is normal and appears bloody. This is also normal for a number of days after an animal has given birth. However, if the bleeding and/or discharge persists, this could be a sign that the placenta has not receded after birth.

Sometimes, the urinary tract and vagina can cross-contaminate infections, leading to bloody or very cloudy urine and purulent discharge from the vagina. A sample of this discharge can be taken for culturing to identify the pathogen. In cases of infection, a blood test will be administered to gauge the severity of the infection via white blood cell count, and make sure the infection has not spread to the blood to cause septicemia (life-threatening blood poisoning).

Cancers of the vagina, uterus, and ovary can cause a variety of discharges and secondary infections, as such a veterinarian may choose to ultrasound your pet’s pelvic region to look for masses. Ultrasound is an easily-portable technology that can provide medical images in even a small veterinarian’s office, and is non-invasive and inexpensive. However, more detailed images may need to be taken via X-ray or MRI, which are larger machines and require referral to an animal hospital.

Treatment of Vaginal Discharge in Dogs

The treatment will vary depending on the underlying condition. Estrus-linked discharge usually clears up after the cycle ends. Infections will need medical attention, including antibiotics and possible surgery to drain and clean the infection site. This may require a hysterectomy on intact dogs or additional resection to animals that have been spayed.

Cancers will be treated according to the type, progression and location of the tumor. This may include chemotherapy, surgical intervention, or radiation therapy. Other abnormalities, such as a fistula (linkage between rectum and vagina) will need to be repaired surgically as well.

Recovery of Vaginal Discharge in Dogs

The recovery of your dog will depend on the condition causing the discharge. Most infections are easily treated with antibiotics and cleaning of the area while more stubborn infections may need surgical cleaning and/or draining. Cancers vary widely in their recovery rates, so ask the veterinarian about treatment options and life expectancy. Surgery to repair a defect or trauma is usually successful provided post-surgical care instructions are followed, and the pet is kept from chewing the area.

My 13 year old dauchsund has a smelly thick white discharge.Its not constantly happening, when it does it doesnt seem to hurt her or cause discomfort. She always licks herself when it happens. First noticed it about 4 months ago. She is spayed. We have a male dauchsund who is also fixed, he is constantly humping her and licking her hind end

Since Raisin is spayed, she should not be having this thick discharge, and she may have an infection or other condition that may need attention. It would be best to have her examined by her veterinarian, as they will be able to identify the cause of the discharge and give her any treatment that she may need.

I have a female 10 month old GSD she went into her first heat cycle March 9th, its been almost 6 weeks. She stopped bleeding after the third week, but her nipples and vagina are still swollen and she is constantly licking her vagina still. We have noticed some discharge since yesterday a watery clear discharge with an odor. She is not peeing any more than she was, she also seems to not want to eat right away in the morning her food but she will eat treats and then her appetite is fine by lunch and the rest of the day (she tends to like to eat when me and my husband are both home) I am not sure if she is depressed as my husband started a new job and is home with her less or if there is some other issues going on. Is it normal for a heat cycle to last this long without any blood and a discharge with an odor with her nipples and vagina still swollen? It will be 6 weeks this friday 4/20.

Dr. Michele King, DVM
Dr. Michele King, DVM
852 Recommendations
That is a long time for her to continue to have discharge. Typically, the show outward signs of heat for 5-7 days, then remain in heat for 7-14 days. 6 weeks could indicate a problem, and it would be best to have her examined by a veterinarian to determine what might be going on. I hope that she is okay.

What you are describing seems quite normal for a heat cycle. Cause for worry might include if she is vomiting, or stops eating, or if the discharge becomes yellow or brown. Typically, the discharge continues for 5-10 days, and she will remain able to breed for 7-14 days afterwards.

With intact females, we need to be concerned with infections (pyometra) after a heat cycle especially as they age; also tumours and other condition affect intact females which wouldn’t affect a spayed female. I cannot say without examining Ruby what the specific cause is but you should visit your Veterinarian for an examination to determine whether the origin of the blood is from the reproductive tract, urinary tract or due to another cause.

My 15 week old AussieLab puppy had an opaque, white discharge on her vagina when she woke up yesterday. She is not spayed and we do have an in tact male 15 week old puppy as well. We have not seen him mounting her.
Because she cleans herself often I have not seen the discharge again. She is peeing regularly and eating, drinking, and playing normally as well. She has a vet appointment in a week. Should we wait it out until then or take her in now?

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM

Most likely it is juvenile vaginitis which may or may not be observed by an owner due to minimal discharge or a female licking herself regularly; juvenile vaginitis is considered idiopathic (we don’t know the cause) but generally spontaneously resolves with age. If there are no other symptoms (fever, smelly discharge or anything else concerning) you may wait for your appointment.

That little bit of vaginal discharge may have been normal for her at the end of her heat cycle, but it could also be a sign of infection. It would be best to monitor her over the next few weeks for more discharge, vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, or not eating. If any of these things occur, she needs to be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible to rule out any infection. If she does have any problems, it might be best to have her spayed.

Without seeing the substance or being able to examine Nova, I'm not sure what that substance might have been! If she is eating and drinking and bright and happy, you should be okay monitoring her for any further discharge. If the discharge continues, or she has any red, brown, or green discharge, or if she stops eating or starts vomiting or having diarrhea, it would be best to have her examined by your veterinarian as soon as possible to make sure that she isn't having any complications with her pregnancy.

I have a one and a half year old pug who is going through her second heat. It's been 18 days since she started bleeding. She had bright red discharge throughout, salmon coloured discharge for a day- on her 14/15th day- after which it went back to being a dark shade of red. Now, suddenly, on her 18th day, I notice she has very dark coloured discharge. It's dark brown. She's behaving completely normally and she eats and drinks as usual.
She did have a UTI five days ago, for which she was treated with Amoxycillin.

Since dark discharge never brings good news, I'm prompted to ask if this brown discharge is part of her heat! Please do help!

Thank you for your email. Typical time frames for dogs to have bloody discharge are about 3-5 days during a heat cycle. 18 days of bleeding could indicate a problem, as could the discoloration. It would be best to have her seen by your veterinarian - they can analyze that fluid, give her a good exam, and determine what might be going on.

My dog is a border collie, about 1 year old. I feel like she is going through a false pregnancy currently, as she had her first heat about 1 or 2 months ago, and is now nesting like crazy, and developed weird bonds with her toys. If she is going through a false pregnancy, is it normal for her to have some colostrum like fluid coming from her nipples as well as some clear jelly like music coming from her vagina? It is nothing extreme, I just saw the first string today, but want to be sure.

Dr. Michele King, DVM

Thank you for your question. If she is having a false pregnancy, mammary and vaginal discharge can be quite normal, as can nesting behaviors. Those things occur in a real pregnancy, too. The easiest way to find out would be to have your veterinarian take an x-ray. After about 45 days of pregnancy, the pups are visible on x-rays.

Hi. My shih tzu dog is having a bloody vaginal discharge 39 days after her first day of heat. We hired a stud on the 9th day so she could have puppies. Is this threatening? She's not weak but Im very disturbed that she has lost her appetite. :(

My dog went into heat and between Dec 3 and 5th was locked up with our neighbors dogs. She is now bleeding a ton. She has a huge puddle of blood in her kennel and all over her dog bed. She stopped bleeding and then just yesterday she started to bleed like crazy. Could it be a sign of a miscarriage? Or something more serious.

Thank you for your question. There can be a number of hormonal changes during pregnancy, and afterwards, but by 5 weeks after having her pups, she should be pretty much back to normal.

Without examining her, I can't diagnose anything, so she should probably be seen in the near future. I hope that she is okay!

Thank you for your email. I am also concerned about it being something else. I am worried that she may have a pyometra, an infection of her uterus. Creamy bloody discharge is a concerning sign, as is the vomiting and diarrhea. It would be a good idea to either take her back to your vet in the morning, or seek a second opnion, and make sure that she doesn't have this infection - sometimes they have to run bloodwork to find out. If this infection is ignored, it can quickly become a life-threatening condition. I hope that she is okay.

Thank you for the info! I wondered if it might have something to do with her not being spayed. I will definitely call our vet tomorrow.

Dr. King,

I wanted to thank you for the information! I called my vet and got her in and she did in fact have pyometra. She had surgery tonight to remove her uterus and she should be home either tomorrow or Friday.

My APBT bitch has just turned 2 years this month. She has blood dripping from her vagina as she has during past heats. Her first heat was at 8.5 months months, then 6 months after that, and again at 6 months, so here we are at 4 months and its a bit early for her heat. After 3 days of dripping she vomited today and it was grey and smelled like pure fecal matter. She went out and had a solid bowel movement, but continued to vomit putrid fecal smelling matter several more times in about an hour. Her appetite has been fine, though I have not fed her since last night since she was puking this morning, and her demeanor has been normal. Some whining before first puking. She also has done this 1-2 times in the past, while alone, and it was mistaken for diarrhea about a year ago and resolved. Now that I see she is vomiting this crap, I am wondering, could this be something more serious? Her vomiting resolved within that hour, 9 hours ago, and she has not been offered food yet and otherwise acts fine.

Thank you for contacting us about Misha today. I am concerned with her erratic heat cycles and vomiting that she may be developing a uterine infection, or pyometra. The vomiting might be unrelated, but without seeing her it is impossible for me to diagnose her one way or the other. If her vomiting is due to another reason, like dietary indiscretion, she may need anti-nausea medications. If it is related to a pyometra, she needs to see her veterinarian and have an ovriohysterectomy, as that is the only cure for pyometra. It would be better to have her seen now, when her attitude seems normal, than to wait and see if she shows more severe signs later and becomes more critical. I hope that she is okay!

I have an American bully female and she has 1 litter after she recovered from her litter on her next cycled heat a ball came out her vagina then went away then 6 months later a creamy brown liquid is coming out her vagina and it's been everyday what could it be

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM

The ball coming out the of vagina would have been vaginal hyperplasia which is caused by excessive hormones during heat and resolves spontaneously after the end of the cycle, spaying normally resolves the problem from recurring. The brown vaginal discharge most likely would be due to pyometra which is an infection of the uterus and requires immediate veterinary attention; emergency ovariohysterectomy is the treatment of choice but mild cases may be treated with antibiotics but recurrence is high.

Patient was sedated and vulva examined and scoped. Mild erytherna and irritation in the distal vestibule. No foreign body noted. There was a strong odor but no discreet lesions found. Assessment: Vulvar discharge is mildly hemorrhagic with a strong odor. R/O vaginitis vs foreign body vs UTI. Vaginitis is most likely as urine in the bladder appears to not be affected. no foreign material or lesion noted. PLAN: e-collar to prevent licking. Dilute chlorhexadine wipes of the vulva twice daily. Oral Clavamox 250 mg PO q12h for 10 days." When I adopted her, there seemed to not be any bloody discharge. I took her to the Vet for a checkup right after adoption and she seem fine. It's been 5 months and now after she has peed (first pee is normal looking) she will squat again and the "pee" is red and this time a whitish mucus came out. She doesn't have any other symptoms...doesn't look in pain, appetite is normal, and she goes to the bathroom regularly.

The whitish discharge may be due to vaginitis or may be attributable to uterine stump pyometra (an infection in the small remnant of uterus left over from spaying). Given her history, I would recommend that you keep the area clean and visit your Veterinarian so a general examination can be performed to check whether it is a recurrence of vaginitis or something more serious. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Went to the Vet, Luna ended up having a Urinary Tract Infection. They shaved the area to make sure there was no fur there to catch dirt and debris and they did some urine samples. They prescribed her with 2 weeks of Clavamox (antibiotics) and MalAKet Wipes, wipe the area once a day. Happy to report after 3-4 days on antibiotics, the bleeding has stopped. Of course finishing the antibiotics. Thank you for your help!

Vaginal discharge may be caused by a few different causes which may include infections, vaginitis, foreign bodies among other issues. Without having a full examination, I cannot tell you if it is something to be concerned about; it is possible that there may be some skin fold dermatitis and you can try to keep the vulva clean (warm water is enough) and stop her from licking if she is. If there is no improvement, a Veterinary visit would be advised as I cannot prescribe anything to a dog I haven’t examined in person.

THE LUCY PET FOUNDATION free spades. I WILL BE TAKING OUR 2 1/2 PIT whose UTD on everything,spades a just started leaking from her red & swollen vulva. But why? Infection due to holding it?

Did you take your Furbaby to the vet? We are having the same issue with sour 3 1/2 yr old pit. It scares me. 😢

There are many places you can take your dog to get spayed for free, call your local humane society or a pitbull rescue to help you. SPAY your pit, I am a pit bull owner they do much better when spayed and neutered.

My dog had a vaginal discharge and I took her to the vet. They told me to let her get scanned to see what the issue is. It was on a Saturday and I was suppose to get it done on a Monday, it is now Tuesday and she seems fine, also I have been giving her some intibiotics​ (Cefala-S) She seems back to normal and her appitite has returned. Should I still take her to the vet?

There are various different causes for vaginal bleeding which may be due to trauma, infection, foreign objects, miscarriage among others; if this bleeding is persistent it would be advisable to return to your Veterinarian for another check as without performing an examination, I wouldn’t want to guess a possible cause. Examination by both vaginal speculum and ultrasound may be of value here. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Our dog is just over a year old (July 4th) has been having a mucus white/yellowish/greenish looking discharge ever since she got fixed in December. Does not seem to bother her day to day routine, no UTI's, or issues going potty. We've been through rounds of antibiotics, both pill and topical form, vaginal flushes, etc. Nothing cleared it up. Today she had a more thorough vaginal examination (she was under anesthesia) and they found an anatomical abnormality, they found cavities on her vagina creating this puss, again this has been going on since her spay. Suggested we go to a soft tissue specialist for possible removal of said cavities. My question, is if it has not been affecting her for the past 9 months, do we move forward to the soft tissue specialist or just continue day today? Would/could it make the problem worse if we continued and didn't see a specialist OR would/could it make the issue worse if she had surgery? What are your suggestions/advise on the issue?

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2305 Recommendations
This is an unusual case and it would be valuable for you to visit a Specialist to have a consultation and to review her options; the Specialist will be able to give you more specifics based on their experience and will let you know of the severity of these cavities. If the cavities are producing aseptic pus, the problem is more an inconvenience (due to dripping etc…) than anything else; but surgical intervention may be the best course of action.

My dog is toward the end of her heat cycle, and I have noticed that she has not been eating more than her usual with her heat cycles (to the point where she is losing too much weight in my eyes). She is also experience an off-white discharge that is pretty much flowing out of her as if she is urinating at times, and she is also having trouble passing her bowels. I tried given her pumpkin puree yesterday, and she seems to be moving around a little more and eating more of her meals, but I am still concerned with whether something else may be going on or if some of the symptoms may have been related to her being in heat as well as being constipated?

During a heat cycle a female may secrete some different discharge which may vary in colour; however we become concerned if there is a large quantity of any particular discharge especially if it has a peculiar odor. Vaginitis, pyometra and other infections may cause discharge from the vulva; given that P-lou has an off-white discharge that in your opinion is flowing out of her I would highly recommend having your Veterinarian take a look at her to be on the safe side.

My 8-year-old American Bulldog Pit mix is spayed and has clear discharge that is slightly mucous that usually comes out after urinating. I took her in and they saw no inflammation or infection. The vet mentioned that something could have been left behind during her spay. I can't find info on her spay since she was a runaway dog that I adopted. My male dog tries to lick the discharge.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2305 Recommendations

Common causes for clear discharge from the vagina are infection of the urinary tract, uterine stump infection or vaginitis; constant licking of the vulva by your male dog may have caused vaginitis, try keeping them apart to see if there is any improvement. An ultrasound would be useful to see if there is anything in the uterine stump left over from the spay, your Veterinarian will also perform a full abdominal ultrasound to check other organs at the same time.

Medication Used

Cephalexin 500mg

We've been to the vet due to frequent incontinence (urinalysis showed bacteria, but otherwise fine) and treated with a 10 day antibiotic. At the end of the 10 days, urinary frequency started, incontinence gone, and the same antibiotic was prescribed for an additional 14 days (we're about 4 days in). Now she's having night incontinence about twice a week and a yellow discharge from her vulva. Should this clear up when the 14 days are up or should she be seen again for a different diagnosis/testing? I haven't noticed a distended abdomen, but her water consumption has mildly increased. Her mood was off, but since we've restarted the antibiotic, she's seems to behave normally. She's spayed.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM

If you are now seeing a yellow discharge coming from the vagina I would strongly recommend you visit your Veterinarian for another examination as this is not a usually occurrence with urinary tract infections; whilst Jada is spayed, there is a condition called uterine stump pyometra which may cause similar symptoms (increased thirst, vaginal discharge etc…). I would have Jada checked over to be on the safe side. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Her urine, when she does urinate, has a foul odor, but is still yellow in color.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM

Foul smelling urine is usually attributable to urinary tract infections, uterine stump pyometra (as she has been spayed), high ammonia content in the urine, kidney disease among other causes. The normal parameters from the blood work are confusing, a culture and sensitivity test on the urine (from cystocentesis) to identify any bacteria and the most suitable antibiotic for treatment.

Any type of vaginal discharge or bleeding should be seen by your Veterinarian especially in intact females as pyometra is always a concern. Blood may be caused by infection (reproductive or urinary), trauma, tumours, urinary stones among others; also diapers do not help the situation. I would recommend visiting your Veterinarian to be on the safe side and get her spayed as well if you do not plan on breeding her. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Each dog’s heat cycle may not be exactly as described in the textbook as there is some variation between dogs; heat cycles typically last three weeks, anything longer than this should be checked by your Veterinarian as hormonal problems, infections, anatomical anomalies, inflammation and urinary tract issues may all cause some form of bleeding. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

So it is possible for it to last 2 weeks and then stop and continue after a few weeks? She also seemed as if she were pregnant . She was left alone one day with my male dog and then about 2-3 weeks later her breast started to swell as if she were pregnant but now her belly has gone down.

My dog is doing same thing... what did you find out? Was her vagina really swollen too?

Thank you for reaching out. There are numerous causes for vaginal discharge in females which are dependent on numerous factors; age, spayed, last whelping, trauma, infection (of the reproductive or urinary tract) to name a few.  If no other clinical signs are present, a simple case of dermatitis may be present which can be treated easily with good hygiene by wiping away the mucus and keeping the area clean. However, given the age of your dog; a visit to your local Veterinarian for a full examination will determine the underlying cause and they will prescribe the appropriate medication.  Regards, Dr Callum Turner DVM

I have a black lab mix. She is 7 yrs old , hasn't been spayed simply havent been able to afford it. Her menstrual cycle takes place about every 3-4 mths. This time its very strange, scary and as i continue to read up on her symptoms , very dangerous. Brown color discharge with an odor. Bathed her and next day discharge looked like mucus. Haven't seen that again after wiping but she still has brown discharge with very bad odor. I dont know what i can do for her if anything. Any suggestions would be great.

Since then I've noticed some times, when i catch it, she has a like a white/opaque discharge. i wouldn't say grey maybe the lighting made it seem white. i don't know what that could mean. Any advise on this or what it could be?

I have an almost 5 month old purebred German Shepherd. Shortly after we bought her at 8 weeks old we noticed a greenish-yellow discharge from her vulva area. We brought her to the vet and obtained an urine sample. They didn't tell me specifics about the test however did state that she had a UTI which they prescribed an antibiotic for 10 days. We noticed an improvement to her voiding and also the discharge went away. About a week later we noticed the greenish yellow discharge again. It is thick and sticky. We brought her back to the clinic and she was prescribed another round of antibiotics, stronger strength and longer duration. She only has a couple of days left of the regimen and she continues to have this discharge. Do we get a second opinion? I am worried that it could be something else as this isn't going away. She does not have any excessive licking to the area.

It sounds like a case of vaginitis; whilst most cases are cleared up with antibiotics, some cases may be more complex and caused by other factors including congenital abnormalities, faecal contamination, urinary tract disorders, ectopic ureters etc… If this becomes a common occurrence, further investigation may be required including a vaginal exam, x-ray and blood tests (among other tests).

Green discharge from an intact female should always be checked by her Veterinarian as infection of the uterus (pyometra) is a serious condition which if not treated may lead to death. Surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries (full spay) is the treatment of choice in this situation, but some mild cases may be treated with antibiotics, but recurrence is common.

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2305 Recommendations

Thank you for your question. The important question is the origin of the discharge; if it is coming from the vulva there are two origins: urinary tract or reproductive tract. I would be concerned that the origin is from the reproductive tract and that Dirka has a pyometra (if she isn’t spayed) or a uterine stump pyometra (if she has been spayed); other signs of pyometra are excessive drinking, excessive urination, not eating, swollen abdomen and vomiting (not all signs are present in all cases). I would recommend that you visit your Veterinarian for a physical examination to determine the origin of the discharge and to prescribe the right course of treatment (surgical or medication). Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
Dr. Callum Turner, DVM
2305 Recommendations

The vaginal discharge and the limp may or may not be related. I would visit your Veterinarian as a full physical examination and cytology and possibly a culture of the vaginal discharge may be required to make a diagnosis. Also, an x-ray or ultrasound might be performed to rule out anything cancerous and to assess spine and limb health. Cost is very difficult to determine as different regions, different Veterinarians and different conditions have their own pricing; I couldn’t comment on what another Veterinarian would charge. I would visit your Veterinarian as soon as possible as some conditions can be exasperated with time which may lead to higher cost of treatment later. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Thank you for your question. A visit to your Veterinarian will be required to determine the cause of the vaginal discharge. Vaginal discharge may be caused by a variety of conditions (trauma, infectious, cancerous, post-partum or after estrus or whelping). Whether she is spayed or not; and if she isn’t spayed, the last time she was on heat or whelped will be factors in determining the origin. If she was spayed it could be a uterine stump pyometra (where during spaying a section of uterus is left attached to the cervix) or a urinary tract infection. After a physical examination by your Veterinarian to determine the underlying cause of the vaginal discharge, they will be able to prescribe an appropriate course of treatment.

There are various causes for vaginal discharge: estrus, infection, foreign bodies, cancer or physical defect. Given that Jackie is spayed, it is remotely possible for a uterine stump pyometra (where a section of the uterus is left attached to the cervix during spaying) but it isn’t common, especially with a clear discharge. However, skin fold dermatitis is more likely; a simple check of the vaginal mucous membranes would confirm this. A visit to your Veterinarian would be required to diagnose the origin of the discharge before a definitive diagnosis or treatment regime is given. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

I would recommend that you visit your Veterinarian immediately for a full examination to ensure that Nikki isn’t in any immediate danger. If the diagnosis is pyometra the best course of treatment would be a full ovariohysterectomy (spay), although in some cases it may be medically managed. But please visit your Veterinarian today for a full examination. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

Juvenile vaginitis may occur in puppies that have not yet reached puberty. The condition usually presents itself as a vaginal discharge of mucous white to yellow or green discharge; other common signs are licking the vulva and irritation of the surrounding skin. Treatment usually consists of regular cleaning of the vulva with a non-perfumed baby wipe or one with no alcohol. If your puppy is urinating more frequently or there are other symptoms, it may indicate a urinary infection and may require a visit to your Veterinarian. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM

I have a 10 year old female Pit Bull who I have had since she was 3 months old. She has had 2 litters of puppies and is still intact. Over the last few months I have noticed a odor to her urine (smells like old fish). I thought with the summer months she was not drinking enough water but no matter how much water I gave her, her urine still smelled. When we take her out she has to stay out for a few minutes longer as she has also started leaking after urination. Now over the past week she has been bleeding (not during heat), it ranges from 3-4 quarter size drops to sometimes a small puddle and when she urinates now no smells. She is eating and drinking normal, runs around like she is still a pup and has no signs to me of a fever. Does anyone know if this can be something serious?

Not sure if I should be concerned, I have to take her in to have her sutures removed next week but if it's something that can develop into something serious I'd rather not wait. Any thoughts?

Discharge Licking Genitals
I have a Great Dane who was spayed at 7 months since then she had had frequent urinary trac infections. Recently she has had a purulent bloody discharge from her vulva, she is also consistently trying to lick her genitalia. She isn't urinating more frequently and not straining to urinate. What is some advise?

Vaginal Discharge
My female dog consistently licks her vulva producing large amount of clear fluid. She does not do it all the the time but approximately three to four times a day. She leaves a big wet spot where she is when doing it. She was retrieved from a city shelter and was spayed by a well respected veterinarian. I do not know if the problem existed prior to the operation or is a direct result of the operation. I plan on contacting her veterinarian and set up a exam. Could you give me some insight to what it might be?

I know this sounds gross, but I noticed my dog Lexi has been leaving little stains around the house. When I took a closer look I noticed discharge coming from her vagina. I made an appointment with the veterinarian office. I told them the only thing I notice different is that she has to pee a lot more than before. The vet office said they will examine her to find the cause. I feel worried, but they said most discharge problems can be easily solved.

Odor
Scratching Often.
My dog sometimes has a fish Odor stemming from his penal area. He growls and scratches at the area all day every day. We brought him to the vet who insisted that the smell was due to the fact that his anal glands needed to be expressed so we had that done. We were also told to mix pure pumpkin with his food so avoid further issues regarding this matter. This was about two weeks ago. Today, the smell is back stronger than ever. Any suggestions? I'm debating on trying a different veterinarian....

I have a puppy pit bull she's about 10 to 11 weeks old and has been having a thick sticky green discharge coming from her vagina. It's been happening for about two weeks since she got her shots from the vet and I'm want to know what can I do. She's not freaking out when she goes to pee and she's drinking and eatting normally.

It just started today but when I took Storm outside to use the bathroom this morning, I noticed something dangling from her vagina and though it was just something from the grass. I took a closer look and it was a small amount of discharge. Now, it is 11pm and I was about to take her outside again to use the bathroom one last time for the night, and noticed the discharge dangling again, but a little more than before. It's thick and a kind of white in color.

Frequent Urination
Hi, I just adopted Ellsa 2 months ago where they had spayed her right then. For the past 5 days she has had purulent vaginal discharge and very frequent urination. Sometimes she will go a huge puddle and then every 10 minutes or so she will go in many little spurts too. She is a mastiff pitt bull and 3 months old. What could this be?

Itching
I just noticed the last few days that my spade husky/Sheppard mix has a small amount of blood on her white for around her vaginal area. She's been licking the area and has seemed to need to urunate more often in the last few months but I figured this was due to age. It's also her trying to rush out the door when I leave so it may simply be that she wants to go outside in general, shes only had 1 accident inside. She's 13. She also has seasonal allergies pretty bad, I'm not sure if that could be related. I've been giving her 1/2 Benedryl 1-2 times/day for the past few weeks so she doesn't create hot spots on her head or bite the fur off her legs :( She seems to just be licking her caginal area though not biting due to allergies. There isn't a ton of blood, I probably wouldn't have noticed if not for her white fur. Any help with what this could be would be greatly appreciated!!

Licking At Genitals
Frequent Urination
I have noticed a mucousy opaque discharge near her vagina a few times in the past few weeks. She sits down outside a lot and also frequently licks her genitals so its likely that there are instances that I missed. She was spayed abot a month and a half ago. She has urinated very frequently since we adopted her about a month ago and I am unsure if this is just because she is a puppy or if it is an indicator of something else.
