Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Dr. Bruce. The yellowish discharge was all over the top of tail and her hind legs, like she sat or laid in it. It smells very bad. She is eating and drinking. She did eat her breakfast. By the way. I have two females. They are from same litter. The other female (Melanie) seems just fine.
Dr. Bruce. I always err on the caution side. Although she is eating, drinking and playing with her sister right now. She has been vomiting or have diarrhea. I will call my vet and let him know I am coming in with her. Thanks for the website it's a good one.
Dr. Bruce. WOW! My other female (Melanie) whom I wasn't initially asking you about, was starting her heat cycle. I found some bloody discharge by accident on her while loading them into their car seats. Scarlett - the female I originally sent questions for doesn't have any infection, although the vet did see a lot of normal bacteria from swab she took. The discharge I was seeing can happen at the very beginning of the hear cycle before the bloody discharge or after. It's hard to determine with Scarlett, we are watching her. Melanie is definitely starting her heat cycle and needs a diaper almost 24/7.
Vet gave me a mild antibiotic for them both just to be safe indicating that giving them this medication won't hurt them.
I feel much better now and will continue to monitor them closely especially Scarlett, (she's a clean freak, so it's hard to tell with her).
Thanks again for your help and knowledge sharing
