Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog's tail is so itchy. Dr. K is off-line right now, so I will be able to help you.
What were in the shots that your vet gave? If you can't remember, do you still have the invoice? Did the shots seem to help, even temporarily? Have you tried giving Benadryl? The dose is about 1-2mg per pound of body weight.
Can you send a picture of the brown spots? Just attach it to this conversation with the paperclip button at the top of your text box.
Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you and your dog.
