Child discharging gel-like fluid from vagina. What is it?

I need some help/advice on one of my girls. As of yesterday, my wife and I noticed that Willow, who will be a year old on the 12th of April, is discharging some gel-like fluid from her vagina. Willow is not spayed and is not due for her second heat until September. The fluid is odorless and somewhat cream coloured with a tinge of brown. Its consistency would be like the white of an egg, on the slimy side and thicker than water.

Hi dad,
Thanks for placing your query through HCM.
I can appreciate your concerns.
After newborn period & till puberty, girl child can normally have a thin mucoid discharge which is always odourless.
Vaginal discharge that is a different consistency, malodorous, accompanied by blood, pain, itching, redness or burning urination is usually not normal.
If she has any of these please see a doctor to rule out any fungal or bacterial infection.
Nonspecific discharge can be due to poor hygiene, bubble bath and soaps or restrictive clothing.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Best regards.
