Customer Question

My 3 year old choc lab has been voiding clear liquid from her rectum. Im a nurse, I don't think shes obstructed cuz she's having regular bowel movements and no weight loss. It is from her rectum, clear approx. 1/8 cup everytime and she licking and gnawing at her rectum. Shes also urinating in the house which is very unusual for her. Help...

My name is***** have worked in various aspects of small animal medicine for more than 5 years.

Based on what you are describing there are several different possibilities.

Can you tell me if she is spayed? If she is not, when was her last heat? Also, how positive are you that the discharge is from her anus and not her vulva?
