My baby girl Billie has a swollen clitoris. It is about three times its normal size. It doesn't appear red or sore, its just big all of a sudden. It has been 3 days since I first noticed it and it hasn't increased or decreased in size. Does anyone know why this is? Thanks xo

feel gently around the area to see if you find something hard pushing things out of her body?
Hi, yes there is. I actually took her to the vet today and they were unsure what it was. I got a referral to another clinic which I have been in contact with and am waiting for a response.
I actually noticed just this evening that puss was coming out. I gave the lump a little squeeze and more came out.
She didnt seem in pain, but didnt like being poked and prodded so I just have given it a clean and left it for now.
Do you think it might be a periurethral infection maybe?

That isn't good. If it was her vagina she could be spayed but you don't have a lot of options for a urogenital infection. Strong antibiotics first
