You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

Gary, if your Husky X was in heat 1-3 months ago, that yellow discharge is likely to be pus rolling out of her uterus, through her vagina, and out her vulva and would indicate an open pyometra (infectious endometritis). She would then need to be spayed which should be curative. Please let me know when she was in heat last.

She was in heat about a month ago . Her Virginia looks swollen there is no antibiotics to fix this, thank you Sir.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 8 months ago.

Thank you for the additional information. Antibiotics alone won't cure these dogs but antibiotics are prescribed as part of medical treatment which is indicated to preserve future female fertility and the ability to produce offspring. In addition to antibiotics, prostaglandin F-2alpha in conjunction with a dopamine agonist or a progesterone receptor antagonist is used for that purpose. Please discuss this medical treatment with her vet. It's not commonly used.
