Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Any evidence of fleas? Does she have any history of allergies?
How old is she? Are you able to take a picture of the sore? Based on what you are describing it sounds like she may have a hotspot. This happens when there is an over reaction to something that may have irritated the tail. That could be some type of insect bite or contact with something in the environment that she could be allergic too
