Vaginal Discharge in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Outpatient treatment is sufficient under most circumstances. Medications in the form of vaginal douches and antibiotics will be used to treat the infected area.

 

Living and Management

 

The entire round of antibiotic treatment must be completed to ensure a full recovery.

 

Prevention

 

Spaying can help to reduce the likelihood of vaginal infections. For birthing animals, make sure that all of the uterine contents have left the animals body, and be observant of excess blood or discharge after the birth.
