I have a female shiatsu and she has a swelling right by her

Customer Question

I have a female shiatsu and she has a swelling right by her vulva area. It has a small open wound and it's leaking. Last night it went down and now it's back. It's about the size of a plum.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the dog bleeding a lot?
Customer: No she's not bleeding at all.
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Luna. She's 2
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Luna?
Customer: She's been drinking a lot

How long has this been present?

What color is the discharge? Does it have any odor?

Can you take a photo so I can see what you are seeing? To post it, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box (last icon). Or if you cannot see that, then post it on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr Instagram, etc) & paste the link here for me.
