Thanks, AshleyElla, for your thoughts.

Yes, I might contact the veterinary college if I don't get anywhere with my current vet. He seemed to think that an ultrasound wouldn't show us anything more than the x rays did. He also said there are no ultrasound facilities for animals here - I don't know if that includes the college.

Regarding something being left behind at her spay: I asked several vets about this and they all said, she would then show signs of heat once in a while, which she doesn't.

And regarding an abcess: the vet said she would have a fever or show a high pus cell count in the urinalysis and CBC if she had one.

So, his conclusion was that the problem is localised, an irritation for example.

I had another thought: two years ago she had a large abcess on one of ovaries (she had strong pus discharge, which eventually led to us having her spayed). At the same time she also went through a false pregnancy up to the point of going into labour, pushing. It ended with her having a prolapsed vagina, and the vet told me on the phone to push it back in with my finger. (It was at night, he wasn't willing to see her.) I pushed it back in. I'm now thinking, maybe I somehow damaged the tissue or something and maybe there's scar tissue or a stricture or something that has been causing all this trouble for so long.

I will discuss this with my vet.

There's also a vet here who has been to the States a couple of times to work and learn there. She has the rep to be thourough. I had called her, but she did not have time. If I don't get to a solution with my vet I will call her again.

So far, the meds I mentioned in my previous post seem to help a little, but not really. One day there's no discharge, the next day she's all wet.

I will keep you updated!
