Q. I have a Maltese poodle, and aomething is hanging out of her vagina? She is constantly licking it and it looks like a piece of an appendix there in?
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. It may be part of the internal wall of the vagina/cervix/uterus which has prolapsed or sometimes thick discharge may appear like a proper piece of tissue. Best to have it checked by your veterinarian or it may be an idea to request a consultation and send a picture of it.
In case of thick discharge and if your dog is not spayed, a purulent infection of the uterus could be the underlying problem. In that case she would need to be seen as it could turn into an emergency.
