Yellow vaginal discharge.

Species: Cat
Breed: burmese
Age: 6-12 months
my female cat has yellow vaginal discharge
what does this mean?
is it a sign of pregnecy?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

A yellow vaginal discharge is never normal for a cat. I usually do get concerned about a uterine infection called pyometra when I see this. But, this is not common in a young cat.

Pyometra is very serious and requires surgery.

It could also be a vaginal infection.

In any case, she should definitely be seen by a vet!
