My 14 year old terrier is bleedinging from her vagina far

Customer Question

My 14 year old ***** ***** terrier is bleedinging from her vagina far to long. It's been at least a year if not longer. She seems to be healthy otherwise, eats well s a good amount of energy for her age although I did notice her wobble and fall over. If had to guess I would say she was having a small siezure. I have epilepsy so I am somewhat familiar with it. I love oh and would do anything to help her but I'm not exactly rich can help me.

I'm sorry to hear of this with your ***** *****. Please tell me if she's been spayed. If not, she's likely to have a cystic ovary and spaying might well be curative. If she has been spayed, a bleeding vaginal tumor would be suspected. A wobble and fall can represent seizure but also syncopy ("fainting") often secondary to advanced heart disease.
