Five puppies aged between three and half to five months were presented with the history of sticky, cloudy, whitish vaginal discharge since last two days and frequent licking of vulval region. Clinical examination revealed that the puppies were apparently healthy but vulva was swollen and fold of skin around the vulva, which was looking as “In”. In all cases, the discharge lasted for a week and subsided after a course of antibiotics. But in one puppy this episode was occued intermittently at every three weeks interval. While selecting a puppy for breeding purpose first examine the external genetalia for the “Innie” or “outie” of vulva. Innie vulva cause more economic loss to the breeders both in treatment aspect and time. Puppies presenting with “Innie” vulva should be spayed after the onset of first heat so that future generation will not get affected.
