Does your female puppy have a discharge from her vulva? What is that?
Puppy vaginitis is simply an overproduction of mucus in female puppies.
Puppy vaginitis can appear as early as six weeks of age, and if you don't bother her with harsh shampoo, douches, toxic baby wipes (yes they are toxic) it generally will resolve all on its own when your puppy begins to reach puberty.
Puppy vaginitis can sometimes be confused with urinary tract infections.
True puppy vaginitis is a benign condition, and should not be treated with antibiotics or douches. Puppy vaginitis is part of the maturation process of the reproductive tract.
Generally this is a self limiting condition of the female reproductive tract during maturation.
Sometimes puppies will lick themselves excessively, if this is the case take your Doberman puppy to your veterinarian for an evaluation.
It is also common for female pups to get a true UTI (urinary tract infection) at puberty between 6 to 9 months of age.
Cranberry pills wrapped in cheese 3 times a day will change the ph of her urine and will usually clear up all but the toughest UTI's.
As always consult with your veterinarian before treating your puppy.
