Our 3 month old puppy has blood round her weeing area but there

Customer Question

Our 3 month old puppy has blood round her weeing area but there does not appear to be any blood in the urine. She does not appear to be distressed by this or in anyway out of sorts. Will a visit to the vets on Monday be sufficient as our vets is now closed?

Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

It is not unusual for young puppies to develop "puppy vaginitis" which will cause a discharge from her vagina that appears with some blood. This is not serious and most often resolves on its own as Belle's immune system matures. If this were a UTI, she would be straining to urinate so this is not the problem.....

Certainly, if this does nto resolve within a few days, have your vet examine Belle but in most cases, this will resolve.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.



Sincerely, ***** *****
