i don’t know about the smell, but a straw-colored discharge the last week is normal for my bitch.  she’s in standing heat at this point and NEEDS to be kept away from intact dogs for the next week or so.

hopefully Dr. M will have more insight for you.

to clarify: it’s a heat, not a period. totally different things, biologically speaking.

i will be honest with you, i have never noticed SMELLY discharge (other than the iron smell from the worst of it). it can’t be a bad idea to ring the vet to make sure she’s healthy…and it’s a good plan to discuss spaying at this point, too. 🙂

that’s kindof what i’m thinking. just had a short chat RE: heats with the husband, and he confirms it’s not been smelly, just lighter and more straw colored.

Just a note….none of my bitches ever had a smell with the discharge at the end of their season…..I’m just wondering if she could have picked up an infection?

Sounds like infection or cystitis. Good you are taking her to the Vet.
