My boxer was spayed but she would go through what we called feminine cycles every few months where she would have discharge from her vagina.  Is it discolored or stinky?  For our boxer it usually smelled like vaginal discharge.  If not, make sure the area stays clean, she has plenty of water, and keep an eye on it until it passes.  If it is a strange color or stinky, take her in for testing.

@MarMBer:  Yeah.  She is too young for that.  I know with my boy pup, he did the same thing and the doctor just taught me how to clean inside his foreskin.  Obviously, it is quite different with a girl but my point is that it may be nothing.

Was it alot and have you seen it since?

How often is she peeing?

@MarMBer:  If it is the same when you get home, all over and/or dripping, I would take her in.   I wonder if it could be a side effect of the antibiotics.  Like, some women get yeast infections when they take them.

@MrsM914:  I was thinking the same thing. Yeast infection from antibiotics? Can that happen to doggies?

I think you’re doing the right thing by taking her back to the vet, I’ve been a dog owner for 20+ years and I’m still a nervous nelly about every little thing.

Young puppies at her age can have that kind of discharge.  There usually is no bacteria or infection, but a trip to the vet might not be a bad idea to make sure.  It will go away on its own, you just need to keep her clean.

Puppies get vaginitis and it’s usually not a big issue. The vet would likely tell you to make sure you wipe her gently with baby wipes after she pees. Our pup who is 14 weeks still has that happen to her from time to time and the vet said that there was nothing to worry about. 

That said, I’m no vet and you are doing the right thing by getting her checked out.

My pup had a little vaginitis a few times when she was little.  It went away on its own, but that was just a little bit of very pale yellow discharge.  If it doesn’t go away soon and she isn’t acting normal I would take her in.
