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.
I am so sorry to hear about your gal. This condition must have something to do with an infection or an abscess growing in this area. I would worry most that there is some form of infection or tumor inside the oral cavity that is causing the outside to peel due to the irritation that your gal is feeling. It is important to apply a cortisone creme such as Cortaid, available at the pharmacy, to the outside area and flush out her mouth with a peroxide solution just in case this is an infection. You will have to take your gal to your vet for a complete exam to be sure.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
