This answer was rated:

My dog has diarrhea from all the meds she's on (for her autoimmune disease- hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia) and is being treated with Flagyl for the diarrhea. Yesterday when I used wipes to clean her I noticed 2 open sores around her buttocks area. Can I buy a cream over the counter to put on her to heal those open sores?Thank-you

Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.

Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.

I am sorry to hear Sadie is having this problem.

Is she licking at her hind end more than normal?

No , it is an area she would not be able to reach.

You can continue to use the quadritop twice a day, which should help with inflammation. You can also try using a diaper cream such as Desitin 2-3 times a day. You can alternate during the day to get 2 uses of quadritop and 2-3 uses of Desitin. If it doesn't seem to improve over the next few days, I would have her seen again just to make sure there is nothing else going on like anal sac infection/inflammation or an anal sac abscess.
