First let me make it perfectly clear that I WILL be calling the vet as soon as they open but in the meantime I'm stressing out a little and just wondering if anyone has ever experienced these particular symptoms in their dog. Background - She's a 7 month old golden retriever or golden mix that we got at the county shelter in February. She was spayed at the shelter at about 12 weeks old. She has had continuing problems with UTIs. Our vet says she has an inverted vulva which can be a problem with early spaying. We've been advised she may need vulvoplasty surgery at some point. She just finished a 4 week course of antibiotics and was pronounced "clean" via ultrasound guided cysto a little over a week ago. I have been wiping her vulva with baby wipes as advised by our vet. Now the past two days she has refused to eat her food. Yesterday she did eat a little yogurt but refused that this morning. She did eat a little boiled chicken later. When she went out this morning she had a normal poop and then 10 minutes later one that was only mucus and a couple of blades of grass. Then I noticed she was urinating more frequently than normal - like every 30 minutes and licking her vulva a lot. When I went to look at it she bit me. Didn't break the skin, but she wasn't playing either. This is not normal for her. But what I saw that is bothering her is that there are nasty red/purple sores all around her vulva and even one further out on her belly. She also has been acting somewhat depressed the last couple of days. She has bursts of normal activity, but then just lays around in between. She's usually a whirling dervish 90% of the time. These combined symptoms have me baffled. Anyone have any ideas?
