Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Your vet has given you accurate information. Most of these do clear on their own. Typically treatment involves cleaning the vulva 1-2 times daily and many vets will perform a vaginal cytology to ensure that there is not a major overgrowth of bacteria (in those cases antibiotics are indicated). Most dogs will have a few low grade recurrences before their first birthday. Most dogs by 1 year of age will stop having cases of vaginitis and, in some cases, they will stop by 6 months of age. If this is her first case of vaginitis, its common for a vet to instruct you to clean the area and monitor. If needed, antibiotics can always be started in the near future.
