Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian. I am sorry for the delay in getting to your message as I just logged online.
I understand your pet Rusty is licking her vulva after being on antibiotics for quite an extended period of time. This sounds like she may have a vaginal infection. I have a few questions to ask you in order to make the best recommendation for her care moving forward.
What condition are the antibiotics currently treating for (her diagnosis)?
How old is Rusty and is she spayed?
Do you have a picture to send of her vaginal area so that i can get a better look?

Ok got it. Yes a picture would help tremendously. I can understand being financially restrained, that is a good deal of money. Hopefully we can figure things out without that being our only option. Wondering if she has vaginitis on top of having a UTI.
Does the skin around the vulva look irritated/red at all? Any brown discharge or sweet odor smells on the outside vulva?
Is she having frequent urination and drinking right now as well?
