That's a very significant amount of discharge and when seen 1 - 3 months after a heat period usually indicates purulent endometriosis (pyometra). In Sace's case it would be an "open" pyometra (the cervix is open allowing pus from the uterus to roll out the vagina) which buys us some time as a closed pyometra traps the pus in the uterus resulting is life-threatening toxicity. Sace's vet will want to examine Sace at your earliest convenience. A complete blood count (CBC) revealing an increase in white blood cells and X-rays or ultrasound revealing an enlarged uterus indicates pyometra and the need to spay Sace. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
