Dog with Vaginitis

My elderly bouvier bitch has been suffering from Vaginitis the last week. Milky white discharge which seems to come in waves, slight temperature 39.7 Celcius (only checked this morning) little energy, no appetite, drinks normal. Its abnormally hot in the UK and has been for weeks so that doesn't help her as she is thick coated.
She is on Raw diet normally but will only eat cooked chicken at the moment but even refused that last night.
She's on Uva Ursa herbal capsules twice a day for a week. 15 strain Probiotics twice a day and Cantharis 30x for 5 days (3x a day) and Nux Vom 5m for three days (once a day) No improvement or change.
Before this started she did urinate more than normal but only when on walks. I put it down to her age (13) She also had a spell of not eating and loose stools over a month ago for which the vet talked me into having a three day antibiotic treatment (I don't like it as it has given her problems in the past) because he couldn't find what was wrong with her and it had gone on for two weeks. This might have caused the imbalance even though she had pro biotics every day.
She's a Bouvier des Flandres, weighs 30 kg, female, 13 years old. Calm and affectionate in nature. Likes the cool. I hope someone can give me some advice as I don't want to end up with more antibiotics and unfortunately the only homeopathic vet is 120 miles away.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Sorry, I meant to say she's had Nat Mur not Nux Vom

Give her Kreosotum 200c twice a day for 4 -5 days. If it doesn't help at all, add Nitricum acid 3c, in liquid form twice a day until you see some changes.

1 dose is 2 pills or drops.

Thank you so much. I will order these immediately.

I normally give pills straight under the tongue. Is that correct?
 
skylark last year
Yes, or you can also put a few pills in her water bowl.
 
Tui last year
I will do. Thanks.

Tui, I've just received the remedies. Have a question. The important characteristics of Kreosotum seems to be acrid and offensive discharge and severe itching. Hers isn't acrid as I've had it on my skin several times, it doesn't smell and other than cleaning herself a lot, she doesn't seem itchy at all. It is now also tinged with a bit of blood. Is this remedy still ok to give her? She still has a temperature and is just sleeping whole day, not eating but drinking ok....Also I did read this remedy should just be given as one dose in this potency? I don't question your knowledge in the slightest but don't want to confuse the picture of the disease. Hope you don't mind me asking as I am very grateful for your help.

Are you sure about diagnosis (vaginitis)?
 
Tui last year
As sure as I can be from the symptoms without a visit to a vet. My vet is totally opposed to homeopathy or herbal treatments. I can take her but he's already got me down as a careless owner because I oppose his recommendations often, which are antibiotics for everything. She's had Pyometra years ago but this doesn't have the same symptoms. That was solved with Pulsatilla 200. If you think I should have her diagnosed first, with the risk of being forced into antibiotics, then I will. I would like to give some donation to you to thank you for your advise if thats allowed?

She still eats, despite me having to feed her and drinks freely. No diarrhoea or vomiting. She does sleep whole day and is weak at the back but still wants to go and spend time in the car, which she loves but she is definitely not as responsive or with it as normal if that helps?

If your dog has vaginitis, you see other symptoms such as difficult and frequent urination, and pain during urination (it's obvious to see if she is in pain) and swelling and redness around a vagina (and she will be licking).

Vaginitis is often caused by UTI so if you suspect she may have UTI, then you can give Pulsatilla 30c or (200c if you have) up to 3 times a day.

And Medorrhinum 200c, once a day.

Also if she is still running fever, you can also give Pyrogenium 200c, just once a day.

Stop any or all the remedies when you started to see some improvement.

Ok, I will. I'm taking her to the vet to have her diagnosed properly as the weekend is coming up and I will only have Pulsatilla to hand, the others need ordering and won't be here before the weekend. She does urinate frequently and did this before she got the discharge, but her breed does not show pain at all, so hard to tell how she feels. When she had Pyometra she did not show any pain at all even though we found out she would have had it longer than we'd known. This time she had swelling around the vagina (now gone) but no redness. She licks to clear up the discharge. I do not want her to have antibiotics as they cause so much further problems and often don't address the original problem anyway. I will start with Pulsatilla and hope that will make a start. And yes, I always stop when there is improvement as I know the body has taken over the healing. Thank you x
