Default After season issues

Hi
I’m sure this will have been asked before, but my 10 month old puppy finished her first season 1 week ago. Tonight she has had a small amount of brown smelly discharge, should I be concerned and taking her vets tomorrow? Or is this normal 1 week after season?
She still has swollen nipples which I understand is normal at this stage, and she is eating drinking and acting normal.
Don’t want to over react but also concerned about infection

Pyometra is unusual after the first season, but certainly not impossible. I know of at least one bitch who had it and had to be spayed. The swollen nipples, as you say is normal, and neither the nipples or the vulva will revert to the pre season size.

Obviously I cant see the discharge, but a brown smelly discharge is very suspicious, so for safety sake I think a trip to the vet is advisable.

Thank you, that was what my concern was. I think I will call vets and get her in today as she needed to be weighed anyway so kill two birds. She is still normal after nights sleep and no temperature but I know it can turn quickly

Agree with John, better safe than sorry. Get to the vets.

Itís rare in girls so young but itís not that rare. 3 out of 4 of my adult bitches have had pyo, with emergency spays. The fourth I had spayed because she was having phantom pregnancies. Maybe Iíve just been unlucky.

Ah I see never had a female before, had a black lab male so this is all new to me. Trying to figure things out and not be too over protective but really glad I sought advice on here now

I've only had one Nicola, but then I usually get my bitches spayed at around 5 years old. After having to have 2 spayed late in life as an emergency I now prefer to have them spayed while still relatively young. At 5 years old they throw off the effects quickly, where at 10 or 11 years old it's a lot harder on the bitch. Mandy had Pyo at 11 and Kate went Diabetic and needed spaying because the imminent season was destroying her sugar balance.

I’ve got mine booked in to be spayed at 1 years old so 2 months after her 1st season which is the advice of my vet. Will this stop her from humping the sofa? It seems to be her favourite past time 😂

Probably not. Humping can be a pleasurable occupation rather than a sexual thing. You can rely on spaying for no more than preventing pregnancy.
