Customer Question

Hi! Are you really a real person with me right now? I am pretty sure my dog has a nasty yeast infection. She has been licking her paws incessantly, chewing on her backside above her tail, scratching her belly like crazy, and licking her uh...nanny a lot (more than usual) her feet smell like Fritos (frito feet) she just recently, last night, be an sounding like she has snots in her nose, kinda sniffling/snorting. Not reverse sneezing, just in her nose, like when we have a cold, and dont have a tissue kinda deal. She has a bump on her back above her tail which showed up prolly two weeks ago, about the size of an eraser on a pencil, and she kinda twitches her fur all along her back when I go to pet her now, she's never been that sensitive. She doesn't really like me petting her a whole lot on her back now, and she's usually all about the lovin all over her body. All of the vets around me are closed today, and I know she is very uncomfortable, what can I do? It's breaking my heart!

Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...How long has she been chewing at her feet?Any new foods, treats or people food?Any new things in her environment recently?Is the bump on her back smooth or bumpy?How is she acting otherwise?
