Offensive smell

Darcy my 2 year old Vizsla has the most disgusting fishy discharge from her vaginal area, this happens every few months, Darcy licks this area a few days before she discharges this dreadfull smell, this is followed by licking the offending liquid from wherever she has discharged, usually the cushions on the sofa.
Darcy is in great health and was spayed at 6 months before her first season....veterinary recommended, your comments please.....................I am now off to scrub a sofa cushion.... :-[

Re: Offensive smell

Are her poops soft recently?

Sounds like she needs her anal glands expressed.

Re: Offensive smell

No softer than normal DaveD but I noticed the area around her vagina was slightly swollen on Saturday and then today she had this discharge.....disgusting...

Re: Offensive smell

I'm with DaveD on this one. It's much more likely to be an anal gland issue. The swelling could have come from her trying to clean herself and rid herself of the discomfort. The smell you described sounds exactly like what Willie smelled like when he had anal gland troubles in the past.

I would advise you to take Darcy to the Vet for this, because if it turns into an anal gland infection it's much harder to treat. The Vizsla as a breed is known to have this problem fairly often. So let us know what happens, okay?

Re: Offensive smell

I agree with the suggestions about the anal gland issue. When I was considering a breed, I did some reading about health issues specific for each breed and the anal gland issue described as the one with fish smell is common. if you google the issue, you may find info describing the problem, videos on how to clean the glands, etc.

Re: Offensive smell

We had a lot of problems with the anal gland issue exactly as you describe on and off for a few months, but it was in conjunction with softish poo. It still happens randomly on occasion, although it is not bad in terms of amount. Sometimes just a tiny bit on the dog and I am the only one who can smell it. We use Dr. Bronner's peppermint castile (liquid) soap to clean it off of the dog and anything else it gets on. It gets rid of the smell and is a limited ingredient product, nothing harsh.

Being a Global Clam digger :-* the Fish smells still haunt me some ;D

nose clips did not work that well or even cheap sun glasses demanding deep Sea salts and a great rub a dubby at least Reduce the Tuna treats ;D :'(

make sure you pre check before going into her property or yours there is a exit

Its like a fire safety class Free

jumping and sprinting skills could help some :P

Real life not one pointer I have had or worked with had anal gland issues due to choices and I avoid the anal glands at all cost :-X :-[

Diet and Lifestyle choices and clean core foods matched with pre and pro boitics reduce them and rise there Core immunity against other Risks as well as well as digestive Enzymes a cold pressed flax seed as well into there mixer

clean all processed and consumed

Great clean Hydration is a great support as well

as glacier waters are healers

Box Sets soon

reading skills at least 4 languages and a higher education might Not Support this read :-*

the internal PH levels could be a concern as well

Clean is mean

tight is right" ;D
