Customer Question
Just got home and...

Just got home and noticed my spayed female is very swollen on half of her vagina.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Missy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Missy?

She is about 2-1/2 years old. We adopted her in May from the Humane Society. She has had at least one litter of pups & was spayed. I have been out of town and my teenage son has been taking care of her. I am concerned that she might have an infection, but don't know what to look for
