My Maltese has been chewing and scratching s left p so much

Customer Question

My Maltese has been chewing and scratching his left hip so much that his fur is gone and he has raw places. I am giving him Benedryl but it hasn't helped. Our vet is closed today. What can I give him or put on his hip?

Hi this is Dr. Gabby. How much does he weigh? Are you giving him 1/2 of a 25 mg benadryl tablet?

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 1 year ago.

Is the skin on the hip red or inflamed? Is he limping on that side at all?
