Hello, and thanks for writing in.
Is your dog spayed?
No she has not been spayed
Sorry, my internet connection died, and I just got it back going again (crazy router problems lately).
I am concerned about a vaginal infection, or more importantly a uterus infection (called a pyometra). A pyometra is diagnosed with a white blood cell count, vaginal cytology, and abdominal X-rays to look for an enlarged uterus. If it is a pyometra, aggressive treatment is needed (IV fluids, antibiotics, and surgery to remove the uterus and ovaries). This is a serious problem and needs to be addressed right away. I would recommend having your dog examined as soon as possible, before the problem worsens.
Here is a good article on pyometra:
I hope this is helpful. Sorry again about the delay answering you.
