Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. Chances are that this is an oil gland problem. It may help to find a benzoyl peroxide based shampoo and bathe her twice weekly with it (until resolved, then as needed). Leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing for maximal effect. It is possible that this could be a skin mite infection called Demodex or a bacterial skin infection as well, so it would be a good idea to have your vet rule those out, especially if the shampoo is not working (this shampoo may help with mild skin infections). Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
Hello. I was just following up to see how your Wheaten is doing and to see if you have any further questions.
