Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am so sorry to hear that Meeka is not feeling well today. I am terribly concerned about an infection in her uterus called a pyometra. Even though it is not common in dogs of her age the white material does make me inclined to believe this might be the case. Often there is a potent odor as well but the lethargy, reduced appetite, and discharge makes this the primary differential for her symptoms. CLICK HERE for more information but this can potentially be a true emergency as the uterus fills with purulent discharge and can make her systemically ill.Diagnosis is with x-rays and bloodwork and if this is the diagnosis surgery to remove the uterus is key for a full recoveryPlease let me know how else I can assist you both today. If her temperature rectally is >103.5, her lethargy progresses tonight, her gums are sticky or pale/ yellow/ blue then please consider a veterinary er tonightIf you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
