My mixed terrier female dog keeps licking her private parts ...

Resolved Question:

My mixed terrier female dog keeps licking her private parts (much more than before).
She is 14 yrs. old. It is not her anal gland. Should she see a vet. Every other way she is very healthy except for the hearing loss and sight loss.

She may have a urinary tract infection or an infection of yeast in her vulva skin folds.
I would have your vet check her out as she is such a senior girl and because its obviously something that is making her uncomfortable.
She may also be leaking a little urine due to incontinence and some meds may help her with bladder control if that is the issue.
Hope this helps you!
