I would like to hear from anyone who has come across this, or has any ideas on what the problem may be. I havnt ever come across it before, and dont think i am over reacting! We have an app. with her vet on Monday. Mia was 11 months when i got her, and came on heat after a week. Her discharge was (in my opinion!) excessive, she would loose say, 2 tblsp worth each time she moved about, and not just in a drip here and there, at once. Besides this, her cycle was normal, she swelled down and it was all over and done with. She has just come off heat again, with the same pattern, lots of bleeding. Even tho her cycle finished over a week ago,she has only partially swelled down,and is bleeding as she was when she started her heat. Ive read all my books, and they only have a few vague paragraphs mentioning ovarian cancer, hormone imbalance and infection! scary stuff. I know the vet will sort this out for me, but i would like to go into the office better prepared than i am. Other than this, she is a picture of health and her temperment hasnt changed any, shes still chirpy and obedient. Any ideas would be great.
ive read up on pyometra on a vet site, she doesnt appear to have any of the symptoms of it. they say swollen belly, anorexia, lethargic fever etc and drinking alot. she has none of these. nor is she urinating frequently or showing anything out of the ordinary.
