Hello. This is Dr. Christian.
Does Mijo take any medications or have other medical conditions besides his skin?
Is his whole body itchy or are there a few spots that are a problem? Did your vet tell you the cause of the scratching?
I've switched away from the chat function because it has been buggy tonight. Were you able to see my questions?
Sorry...I was wondering why you were disconnected! It's mostly his backside, the base of his tail and the front of his hind legs. My mom actually took him to the vet as I working. The vet said that it may be his anal glands, and that we should put salve on it for a couple weeks and then they would call me in a couple weeks and if it wasn't better, they would prescribe something. No one has called. It was kind of a dirty pink at first, but now it is much darker. I have no idea what kind of salve to use. Can you give me an idea?
So, I can use regular triple antibiotic ointment or cortisone cream that I would use? I will try a little and call the local vet tomorrow I guess. So, what do you think it is? The glands or an allergy? She said it isn't fleas.
My bet would be allergies. Anal glands will cause the rear end to itch but would not affect other parts of the body. You can use ointment you would use.
