Friend, I am a bit concern of the heavier discharge you are seeing. This is consistent with a "pyometra" which is an infection of the uterus. This is a surgical emergency, untreated it could be fatal. There could be other causes like vaginitis, cervical tumors, etc. But, at this point it is important to rule out a pyometra. A quick xray can determine if she has a pyometra or not. I would highly recommend you consider having her checked as soon as you can by a veterinarian; do not wait. Holding on treatment can have fatal consequences, not much I can recommend for you to try at home that would have any significant therapeutic benefit. If it is confirmed she has a pyometra she will require surgery to remove the infected uterus.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
