What is Vaginal Discharge?
Vaginal discharge is any liquid material that exits the vagina.
In dogs, the appearance of additional quantities of this fluid or changes to its appearance can indicate a problem.
Common types of discharge include clear and watery, bloody, mucoid, or purulent (containing pus).
Each of these types of discharge can signal different conditions, such as infection, physical abnormality, trauma, or reproductive issues.
Schedule a visit with the veterinarian as soon as possible if you notice your dog dragging its hindquarters, licking the area, or experiencing urinary incontinence.
Clinically significant or abnormal vaginal discharge in dogs is a disruption of the natural fluids produced by the body to clean the vagina.
This may indicate an infection, injury, or foreign body in the vagina.
Additionally, it may also signal a secondary infection of the urinary tract.
