We had the x rays done - dorsal, ventral and lateral.

The same obscure object is visible as in the first x ray taken in April. It has the same size and shape as before and is in the same location, right next to the pelvic bone.

It is slightly darker in colour than the bone next to it but more white than other tissue around it.

It is visible from the front and from the back but NOT from the side. I assume because it's sitting right in front of the pelvic bone (when viewed from the side)? Does the ureter pass from the bladder over the pelvic bone?

There are no other stones or anything visible.

I had the vet come round today (a new one). He was very pleasant, a quiet man, took his time to look at all the reports and x rays we did over the past 4 months, and asked about her history etc. He also examined her belly and found nothing wrong other than the discharge (which has become more over the past two weeks).

His feeling is that the object that shows on the x rays is either an abcess or cartillage or something (can't remember the words), or something left from the spay that became infected. He couldn't say what exactly it is, but he felt strongly that it should be removed and that it is responsible for the dicharge.

He doubted that it is in the ureter as it it too large for it.

He offered to take all the x rays and reports with him and consult his friend, another vet, for a second opinion, and get back to me on Saturday.

He said he sees no point in doing further swabs, urinalysis or sonograms as they will not give us any further info. We already know something is wrong, we know that there is an obscure object and the best way he feels is to open her and look where and what exactly it is and remove it.

Any thoughts?
