Customer Question
She has a volva...

She has a volva that is very dark red and she licks it all the time. She has had meds from the vet but nothing helps after they are gone.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

She has had Cephalexin & Proin lately and after they are gong it comes back. It also makes her "leak" when she is licking that area.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

It appears that it is bleeding so I suppose that area then hurts, I really can't tell that she hurts anywhere else that that area.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the dog's name and age?

Her name is ***** ***** she is right about 12 years old. She is a Blue Merle Collie that we brought into our house when she was 8. She is simply a loving dog that now lives with us but she had been used to raise puppies where she was before until she came to us.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sara?

We haven't had any other real "health" problems with her. But she is VERY shy and hates loud noises. Until she gets to understand those noises she comes to our side very nervous and scared. I don't know if this is part of her constant licking of that area. I just know that it is a vary raw area now.

How long has she had this problem?

Is she spayed now?

Did they prescribe anything else for her to put on the area?

Does she scratch a lot or have hair loss anywhere else?

Did she have a uti?
