My five and a half month old basset was spayed Friday

My five and a half month old basset was spayed Friday afternoon. She started licking her vaginal area a little more a few days after surgery, but I thought nothing of it. Today I noticed a spot of blood on her blanket. I checked her incision, which is fine, but noticed that she has a slight bloody discharge from her vulva. It's very light, and I've only seems two spots on her blanket so far. What could this be?

My 4 year old female has been in heat since Friday the 16th,

Hello, my 4 year old female has been in heat since Friday the 16th, so about a week and a half. The past couple of days I've noticed that the bloody discharge is very,very smelly -- it has a strong musky/foul odor. The blood is very dark in color and brownish-red. Does a foul odor indicate a uterine infection, or can this be normal? She otherwise seems fine -- no diarrhea or vomiting and she is eating well.

She is about 10 yrs old - lab mixAbout 60 lbsShe was spayed as a puppyShe does not currently have a uti nor vaginitisThey are stating her anxiety and panting and the fact that she can randomly jump such as being scared are her symptoms related to cds.She is not urinitating in the houseShe is not hiding behind doors nor furniture.She does not like to stay outside for very long unless we are going for a walk.She doesn't ask to go back outside very soon, just kinda when she needs to go.She answers to me when I call her and/or ask her to go get her toys. Her brain function to me seems pretty normal. The meds they just gave her make her less of a dog than she is today.Her panting and anxiety seem more relative to being overheated or incomfortable to me. Doesn't feel like a mental status kind of thing. It just doesn't fell right to me.

My 5 month basset was spayed Friday afternoon (3 days ago).

My 5 month basset was spayed Friday afternoon (3 days ago). The incision site seems more swollen today. Previously, the incision was flat, and now it is much more rounded. I've attached a picture, if that helps. The incision itself doesn't look much different. I've also attached a photo of that as well. She is on "ace" twice a day, so she has definitely not been too active. She pulls her stomach back when you touch it, so it must be uncomfortable still, but she's not crying anymore, like she was on day one. Is this something to worry about, or just part of the healing process?

Our 3 yr. old female schnoodle is constantly going outside

Our 3 yr. old female schnoodle is constantly going outside to urinate, but there is nothing to excrete. She can't lay down for more than 5 minutes without having to go again. I am ready to take her to the animal clinic for what we believe is a bladder infection. Should we go ahead and go, or try to make it through the night?
