We can try some Benadryl to help relax her and if there is an allergic component it can help reduce itching.

Do you have any calamine lotion at home?

Do you have any Aloe vera gel?

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Meghan Denney, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Benadryl is dosed at 1 mg per pound every 8-12 hours and may make Jasmine sleepy.

You can also do some hydrotherapy. This is where we allow cool water to run over an inflamed area reducing local inflammation. You can do this 7 minutes at a time 3-4 times a day.

If you have calamine lotion or aloe vera you can dab it on the irritated areas of her vulva ( not inside just outside) to help reduce irritation.

Other than that there is not going to be home remedies that can help. If the above methods do not get her any relief you may need to take her to an emergency clinic for medications more specific to skin infection.

Good luck with Jasmine. Let me know if you have any other questions or need clarification.

If this was helpful I would be most appreciative if you could take the time to rate my assistance so the site will credit me with helping you

Without a rating (the stars at the top) the site will not compensate me for helping you.

I am also here for additional questions you may have, just reach out to me here and I will be more than happy to assist you.

Kind regards,

Dr. Meghan Denney
