Chronic vaginitis associated with vaginal foreign bodies in a cat

J Am Anim Hosp Assoc. Nov-Dec 2007;43(6):352-5. doi: 10.5326/0430352.

Abstract

A 2-year-old, spayed female, domestic shorthaired cat was presented for evaluation of a chronic, purulent vulvar discharge. Survey radiographs of the abdomen and pelvis revealed bone fragments in the pelvic canal. A vaginoscopy was performed, and five bony foreign bodies were removed from the vaginal lumen. Using anatomical landmarks, the bones were identified as remnants of a fetal kitten.
