Our 22 month old beagle is experienceing slight vaginal discharge two days after spaying. The discharge is red-ish brown and odorless. Luckily, the amount of discharge is slight; probably 0.40cc since we noticed it 4 hours ago. It is very spotty. Her appetite is fine and all other things all normal; with the expected post surgical behaviors excluded.
This is the very first time we've experienced any discharge following a spay surgery. It's the weekend and our vet's closed. Is this an emergency situation or can it wait until her normal vet opens in the morning?
not an emergency. probably a little bleeding from the vaginal stump. will most likely go away without treatment. A course of antibiotics would be a good precaution. not much else to do. If this was done at a Banfield clinic I'd be a bit more worried. They have a history of sloppy work.
