My 3 year old German Shorthaired Pointer, spayed 2 years

Customer Question

Hi, my 3 year old German Shorthaired Pointer, spayed 2 years ago, has been licking a sore near the outside of her rectum for over a day now. It's oozing a little bit of clear ink fluid and she's constantly licking it. Sorry to be so descriptive! Is there anything we can d for her to avoid a vet visit? We are thinking a cone to prevent her from licking and irritating it...her name is ***** ***** the way.
