My dog is having blood/mucus discharge from vagina or urine.

Resolved Question:

My dog is having blood/mucus discharge from vagina or urine. She was spayed at 6 mos and is now 2 1/2. This just started about 3 months ago. First time was treated with antibiotics this time doing hormone studies. Her CBC. Chem profile are normal. She has severe food allergies and I have given her a small amount of beef twice lately. Also seems to have happened just after given Iverhart. Any ideas?

Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!


Knowing that she is spayed - I would first evaluate for problems such as UTI.

If there is no UTI, then I would consider an ultrasound to make sure there is not a stump pyometra (an infection of the remaining portion of the uterus from the initial spay procedure)

I hope this information helps!
