I have a 6 year old husky which I got spayed about six

Customer Question
Hi I have a 6...
Hi I have a 6 year old husky which I got spayed about six months ago. Noticed she hasn’t been eating like she used to and is always asleep doesn’t want to walk much. Only gets up to drink and go toilet. Was vomiting a couple weeks ago but now has an orange colour discharge coming out of her. Not sure what I can do to help her.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Mishka, please? Regretfully, her symptoms of inappetence, somnolence (sleepiness), previous vomiting, and ocular discharge are important but they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. Please clarify from where the orange colored discharge is coming.

The orange discharge is coming out from were she does toilet. Last night she didn’t want to eat anything.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

From her anus or vulva, please? If from her anus, is she also diarrheic?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Looks like her anus. Haven’t seen any watery diarrhoea. As I have another two dogs
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

Thank you, ***** *****'s unclear to me what the orange discharge indicates particularly if her stools have been normal. Regretfully, I would need to examine Mishka hands-on and perform testing in the form of blood, urine, and fecal tests to be able to tell you more. I'm willing to monitor such a dog for up to 72 hours but if symptoms persisted past that point, I would have Mishka's vet attend to her. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

would you be able to give me a rough idea what it would be
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

Her symptoms are so nonspecific that there isn't enough room in this venue to post all the possible causes of them. Mea culpa. I'll opt out so another expert can enter our conversation perhaps with more ideas for you.

Just had a good look at mishka. Discharge is coming from her vulva, thought it was her anus before because of her hair being all dirty with the orange discharge. She doesn’t want to eat anything
