A:Bitch Recently in Season PetPlanet Talk Adminstrator PPAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org
If the season has restarted with a discharge from her vulva, especially if the discharge is different from her normal loss, your bitch may have a womb infection. As the womb goes through its cycles twice a year, the lining undergoes changes, some of which remain from year to year. Eventually, this
can develop into a condition called pyometra - which is usually treated by
hysterectomy - spaying. If your dog is ill in any way - off food, drinking more than usual, lethargic or vomiting, she should be seen by a vet as soon as possible. Steve Mullender MRCVS vet for petplanet
