Q. What could make my dog have reddish brown discharge she was in heat 4 weeks and also has diabetes and can't hold her urine
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. I would recommend bringing your dog in for a work up. A urinalysis would be helpful to determine if your dog has a urinary tract infection (both common in diabetic animals, and could potentially migrate up the reproductive tract and into the uterus) Given your dogs diabetes is may be prudent to spay her to prevent further litters. Either way, her current condition requires medical intervention.
