Default Re: My Puppy has Vaginitis.

Tazer had puppy vaginitis and the vet recommended I just keep her as clean as possible, watch for any problems, and let her grow out of it. That's exactly what I did and she was fine.

I noticed that she had "thick" urine (mucous-y) and specifically asked the vet about it during one of her vaccinations. We both agreed that as long as she was healthy and happy that we wouldn't put her on antibiotics, although some people do treat it with those. Unless there's truly a problem it's unneccesary (and I don't like to use antibiotics unless they're really needed).

She outgrew it - can't remember quite when, but it could have been around the time of her first heat that I quit seeing thick urine. Other than being a bit messy (which I dealt with by keeping baby wipes near the door and doing a quick wipe when she came in) there was no need to ever do anything about it.

By the way, Tazer is about 16 months old and I'm just now considering spaying her - she's been through two heat cycles. I wanted her to mature more before spaying. And since I knew I wouldn't ever breed her (or let male dogs have access when she was in heat) it was a personal choice to allow her maximum growth before spaying. I'll be glad not to have her go through any more heat cycles, though!

Hi, I hope I"m doing this right, I'm new to the forum. We recently got a GSH puppy, and after 3 days, we noticed that she was urinating little spots, even after being taken outside. She'd come back in, and 10 mins later, a little spot. I did some research and suspected a UTI, took her to the vet, and the vet looked at her little vulva, and it was crusted and sticky (sorry to be graphic) and diagnosed her with puppy vagiinitis. She gave me a 10 day course of clovamox antibiotics, and I"m on the second week, but she still has the stickiness, and although she's not dribbling as much, she still has little spots now and then. I'm also letting her out alot more, so maybe she's doing it outside. Anyway, called the vet, and they want to try a stronger antibiotic. If that doesn't work, we'll have to go to a specialist, in the mean time, I was told to keep her clean, wipe her after she goes out; I'm worried though. Could this just be a strong case of puppy vaginitis? she's active, she's drinking alot of water, she's eating, she's playful, doesn't seem to be in pain.. thanks for any thoughts.

It would be best to start your own thread since this one is over 4 years old. Some may never see your question if they don't go past the first page.
