Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello. Thanks for the question.
It sounds like she has some allergies and secondary vaginitis. This is not too uncommon in dogs. If you want to work it up fully, I'd get allergy testing done with a dermatologist. They can then do Immunotherapy to get it under control. Here's a nice link on how that works:
If you just want to manage it symptomatically, you can give Benadryl at home for the itching. The dose in dogs is 1-2 mg per lb body weight. It can be given every 6-8 hours, as needed. You can also use a topical ointment with a steroid to help with the inflammation. You could get this from a vet or something with Prednisone or Dexamethasone over the counter.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
