Spayed female GSD leaking clear fluid
Hi! I hope someone out there can help me, I am completely stumped as to what is wrong with my 5 yr old GSD, Maya.
To start at the beginning, we had been away for a month so I put her in a kennel. When we picked her up she seemed her normal, usual self. Maybe a week later she started becoming lethargic, not eating much of her usual food but would eat her snacks, and she also developed a fever. So we took her to the vet but she could find nothing wrong. She prescribed some antibiotics and off we went. The next day, I noticed some clear water droplets coming out of her vulva, it's like she was peeing but it was clear and no smell. She kept licking that area as well as what had leaked onto the floor. Back to the vet she went with urine sample and still the doc couldn't find anything wrong (urine was fine). She did suggest we do an ultrasound but we thought we would continue with the antibiotics first to see how it goes.
Today, she seemed fine in the morning, she ate her food and was running around. Then at night she started to leak the clear fluids again and she looked clearly not comfortable. l left her lying on her towel and when she got up, it was soaking wet in the area near her bum. When she did walk around, she was just following us with a sad look in her eyes. Later, we saw a jelly/mucousy type substance on the floor which must have come from her. We put it in a box ready to take it to the vet tomorrow morn for analysis. After that discharge, she seems a little better. I took out her favourite ball and she suddenly looked very alert and even chased it when i threw it. Now she is asleep again.
Sorry for such a long story but i thought i should get as much details in as possible. I just can't find anything on the internet. Everyone says go to the vet but the vet is just as clueless! Does anyone know what this could be???? I will take her to do the ultrasound after the weekend but till then, I am baffled and I really would like to hear of others in the same position.
Hope someone has some insight into this....
thanks in advance!
