Hello. My name is***** am happy to help you with your question. Give me just a moment to respond and type.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Are you sure it is urine or could it be yellow "pus" coming from the vagina/vulva? Is she spayed? Is she urinating more than usual?

Yellow on her vagina and above no pus has been spayed
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
She urinates a lot anyway so no change in that

Thank you. It sounds like she may have a urinary tract infection. That can cause the urine to appear different. It can cause the urine to smell abnormal too.

So, if she were mine I would start with a urinalysis to check for infection.

I need to call dr for app thank you

Then antibiotics can be prescribed as needed. Urinary tract infections are very common in female dogs because when they squat to go the vulva is close to the ground and dirt and bacteria can get on the vulva and move up the urethra to cause an infection.

If she will tolerate it, add warm water or low sodium broth to her food to increase her fluid intake. That will help flush out her urinary tract too.

You are welcome. Glad to help. Happy Holidays.
