|Hey folks, well looks like so far so good. They took a sample with a qtip and looked at it under a microscope, and didn't see any white blood cells. The vet said everything looked fine. That it could be the fact that we changed her food recently, that she recently lost weight (a good thing lol, she was getting a little porky), or the fact that Chloe has a little extra flap of skin down there, or a combination of all three. She also said that since spayed dogs still have a cervix, it could be that her cervix is producing fluids.
She said that she might be in the early stages of a bladder infection and to watch out for the symptoms. So we'll just be keeping an eye on her for now.
She said that some other things that can cause discharge include a foxtail (!!! ouch!! she said one of her border collies gets that almost each year!!), or "stump" pyometria. But since the sample didn't have any white blood cells, and her hoo-hah looked happy and healthy, those were ruled out.
So, big sigh of relief here. Thanks again everyone!
