Andi was spayed last Friday (the 12th). She started to have this brownish vaginal discharge within a few hours of brinign her home. It looked like old blood. I called the vet back the next day and tey said it was normal since she'd recently had a litter.
Over the course of the last 6 days it progressed to dark red, started getting more profuse, and then late last night went to bright red. It was still bright red again this morning. She's discharging half dollar or bigger sized piles of thick, bright red blood every few hours.
I took her to the vet where they ran blood clotting tests, a CBC, and did x rays. They could't find anything wrong with her
. The vet decided to put her on a 10 day course of clavamox b/c she thinks it might be a localized infection (but dog has no temp, no green or white discharge, CBC is totally normal).
Any experience with this? I know most of you don't spay your dogs and I really didnt' want to do her, but it was a condition of her adoption. I just don't wanna wake up one morning to find my dog has bled out! Someone suggested to me that if any part of her ovaries or uterus was left behind that it can stimulate a false heat. Anyone?
