1- Is she licking her vagina?
2- Is she urinating more frequently?
Friend, it sounds like she has some vaginitis. This is what you can do until she is seen by family veterinarian:
1- Pick up in your local pharmacy "Hibiclens" antimicrobial soap or chlorhexiderm scrub. Wash area with this soap 2-3 times a day. If you do not find the above soap use over the counter antibacterial soap.
2- After washing affected area as above apply a topical hydrocortisone cream; you can buy this over the counter in any pharmacy. Do this 2-3 times a day for the next 7-10 days.
3- Follow up with your family veterinarian.Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know.
