my 10 week female puppy has green discharge from were she pees and when she pees she stays in that position for a long time

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

Hi. I'm Dr. Gotthelf. I have been a vet for 33 years and I would like to use my experience to help you with your pet's medical problem.

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

This is probably normal. The female puppies start to produce mucus as they start to produce some hormones.

Customer:

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

If she is straining to pee and if you see any color or cloudiness to the urine, then have her checked.

Urinary tract infection.

It can be painful as well as causing constant irritation like she feels like she needs to go.

Yes. But your vet would need to make that call.

Just keep the vulva clean and watch for any straining. The mucus is normal.
