Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It could be that sweet Lucy is allergic to the shampoo or something used by the groomers and this is causing some irritation and this licking at her hind end. For this , give Lucy Benadryl at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs for a few days. If this has not been effective to stop this, then have your vet examine Lucy since she may have impacted anal glands which are common in some dogs or the groomer may have attempted to express these glands causing some irritation which a cortisone creme will resolve quickly.
Does that make sense to you?
