Puppy Vaginitis

By January 30, 2013

Follow me on:

Gotta Love Puppies by Amy Loves YahPuppy vaginitis is inflammation of the vagina in a puppy that has not reached puberty (i.e., has not gone though a heat cycle). This common condition is also called juvenile vaginitis.

This is a common condition in young female puppies, and is usually mild. However, a visit or mention to your veterinarian is warranted to confirm a diagnosis and rule out other possibilities, such as an infection of the urinary tract.

Learn more about puppy vaginitis and what your veterinarian will be looking for during an examination of your puppy.
