My pitbull has not been eating, lethargic and has firm

Customer Question

my pitbull has not been eating, lethargic and has firm swollen glands. She has had diarrhea and had 1 small-moderate bloody discharge. She is not spayed and I can't see how she could be pregnant unless a dog got into my backyard somehow. Advice please!
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: 7 years old and her name is brownie
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about brownie?
Customer: thats it

When you say she has firm swollen glands, which glands are swollen, and how swollen are they?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Her mammary glands, they are firm-rigid like. She just had a second large bloody discharge.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
they are moderately swollen is my guess. Nothing extreme but definitely swollen.
