Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pet Betty is not doing so well as of late.

Brownish discharge from the vagina and vomiting indicate she most likely has an infection of either her bladder or her uterus. A uterus infection can be life threatening in pets if not treated quickly by your vet, and only affects female pets that are still intact.

Is Betty intact? Has she ever been spayed?
