Vaginal discharge

My three year old Labrador has just finished her periods but there is a sticky very light pinkish discharge that continues - I wonder if she has picked up some infection? Grreatly appreciate any helpful suggestions.
Thanks - Dhrubo

Sounds like she isn't over her heat but I would take her to the vet if you are worried. Intact females in particular are at risk for some nasty infections. Are you planning on getting her spayed?

Vet had a look at her and said she has picked up an infection. After two days she is still spotting but it is now more blood than a pink discharge. Maybe it is the fag end of her periods - will update later.

Did the vet not treat the infection with antibiotics? I'd keep a close eye.

If the infection is pyometra , she could die. Maybe it's a sign for YOU to get her spayed !! Please take her back to the vet.
