Inverted vulva

I am an inexperienced dog owner, and I certainly don't go around looking at the vulvas of other dogs. However, I've been doing some reading on the possible causes of my pup's vaginal discharge, and a lot of it traces back to an inverted vulva. It's hard for me to tell if hers is truly "inverted" or if it just has some skin around it. I'm just not quite sure what a "normal" dog vulva is supposed to look like. Anyone familiar with a dog w/ an inverted vulva?

I have not asked the vet about it yet because I just discovered this condition (I guess you could call it a condition) today.

What about the green nunu stuff, and the possible UTI? Any help from the vet on those things? Just curious...

The vet didn't say a darn thing about it. She dismissed the whole thing when she asked if Lola had been peeing more often than normal and I said "no, she just hasn't been doing it outside."
