Please let me know if your dog is intact - hasn't been spayed.

If that's the case, when was she last in heat?

What color is the fluid and does it have an odor?

Has she been drinking excessively?

You don't appear to be online. I have to leave my computer for the night but promise to reply in the morning if need be. If your dog hasn't been spayed and was last in heat 1-3 months ago, the discharge from her vagina is likely to represent pyometra - an infection in her uterus. Spaying these dogs should be curative. It's important that she be attended to by her vet at your earliest convenience.
