Vaginal Discharge in Dogs



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.




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.
