My wife and I recently got a female Boxer puppy named Roxi (fawn, black mask). A week or two after bringing her home, we noticed a yellow discharge coming out after she urinated each time. In addition, she began having to urinate almost continually. We took her to the vet and they said she had a severe bladder infection and was put on a full cycle of clauvomax. She seemed to get better for a little while, but soon after, the discharge came back and the urination frequency increased again. We took her back to the same vet and they put her on another cycle of a different antibiotic (can't remember the name). Again, she seemed to get a little better, but then got worse after the antibiotic was gone. I took her to another vet who tested her urine for infection and found no infection in her bladder. Instead, she diagnosed her with puppy vaginitis and put her on yet another antibiotic to see if it helped. She consulted several of her colleagues and presented the following scenario. She said that vaginitis on Boxers can be extremely difficult to cure with medicine (the most effective medicine can't be used to due potential growth defects on Boxers) and that it typically goes away on its own after the dog goes through her first cycle. We are left with two options: if we wait until she goes through her first cycle to get her spayed, it dramatically decreases the likelihood of continued vaginitis problems, but significantly increases the risk of breast cancer later in life. On the other hand if we get her spayed before her first cycle, it increases the likelihood that the vaginitis will be a continuous problem, but it drastically decreases the likelihood of breast cancer. Needless to say, neither option is ideal. Has anyone had any experience with or know anything about puppy vaginitis on Boxers? I want to do what's best for my girl, but am struggling with what that is. Thanks in advance for your help!
