Could it be pyometra? Please help!
My little yorkie, Hashie, is turning 3 this July. She is currently in heat since about a week ago. This is her 4th time. I was going to get her spayed after this cycle.
Her period is usually light and it was already starting to look watery yesterday. However, today when I came home from school, there were browny drips on the ground in a few spots around the house.
Is this normal? Or could it be pyometra? I've heard that pyo usually happens in older dogs, and also happen 1-2 months after their heat cycle. If I'm not mistaken, she is still in heat since she only started bleeding 6-7 days ago.
Could this be a UTI? What should I do?
Oh and she isn't acting strange or anything. She eats normally, she is still active and playful.
Thank you in advance for the help!

Would it be possible for you to contact your vet and ask them these questions? They would know better what you should do. I am not sure what the problem could be myself and maybe someone else will get back to you on your questions. But myself I always phone my vet to ask serious questions that are troubling me like the ones you are concerned about. They could advise you I am sure. Hope this is some help and I hope your baby does well and has no serious problems.

Here are some articles on pyometra symptoms and treatment: Pyometra - Dogs | Thickening of the Uterus | petMD
It sounds like it's not pyometra (at least not yet), but if the discharge is different from the way it was during past heat cycles, I would definitely check with a vet to see if something is wrong.
