So we went to the vet and I showed her the poop-jelly, and after several questions and a physical, she was confident that it is a mix of blood and mucus from the large intestine caused by something she might have eaten which might have irritated the intestine and cause some minor bleeding. I didn't mention in my OP that there was an insane amount of flies attracted to the poop-jelly, which makes sense if is blood.
So the vet prescribed some antibiotic for the intestine and some FortiFlora. And we talked a bit about spaying and she agreed with all of you and highly recommend it so we will schedule her for the surgery 2 month after this upcoming menstruation. We mostly did not want to get her spayed because we are scared of putting her through the surgery but we now better understand the dangers of an uterus infection. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and respond.

I don't know what it is but treatment for a UTI will clear that area and make sure there is no infection.
Cranberry extract and vitamin C are recommended remedies. Give these with food and increase fluid uptake by adding meat stock to the water.
My female does discharge more before and after heats but it is not as bad as your sounds. I do still give vitamin c a few times a year to be sure and add cider vinegar to her water sometimes. She also takes a lot of neem oil which is also recommended for such conditions.

Sounds weird to me.
I'd hurry up and spay her. I've had 2 friends now almost have their bitches die from pyrometra and PLUS they ended up with a HUGELY expensive emergency spay surgery.

|Freestep||I don't know about the weird substance you found in the yard, but it doesn't sound right. Is there a reason she isn't spayed? At 3 years of age, any advantages to leaving her intact have already run their course. I have to mention pyometra (infection of the uterus) which can happen to an intact female of any age, and it can be deadly. I've seen enough bitches die of pyo that I can't in good conscience let this thread go by without bringing it up. I know this forum is largely anti-spay, but if she's not a breeding dog, I vote for getting her spayed ASAP. Then you don't have to worry about accidental breeding either.|

unneutered female + pre-menstruation discharge?
Gross topic alert.... sorry
I have a 3 year old female GSD, my first female ever, and she is unneutered. Last Fall we we first adopted her, she had a menstruation in which we used a doggy diaper. But a few weeks before she started bleeding, I recall finding an odd jelly-like substance in the backyard. It was definitely jelly-like, brown and red/pinkish and definitely not poop. Her poop and eating habits were fine so I just assume a stray animal gave birth to something in my backyard.
So now my GSD is due to have another menstruation, and once again, I encountered more jelly-like substance in the backyard in her poop and pee zone. This time it is more brown than pink but it is clearly not poop. And attacting a lot more flies than her poop does. I am going to the vet tonight, but was wondering if this is a common pre-menstruation thing...
