      So sorry i've only just noticed your message. My work stopped access to this site for over a wk as it was a community site but we've got it back now!

      Her prob at the time sorted itself because I keep her hair there shaved.

      She recently started licking like mad so I've had to take her to the vets a few times in the last 2 months. She has a recessed vulva (have a look at online pics & your dog's ladybits to see if that's her prob). He said it was a bacterial infection. In the end she had some anti inflammatories and 3 lots of antibiotics. I also put Malaseb antibacterial shampoo on for 10mins then gently wash/pat off. She's been fine for a couple of wks but i have to say i noticed yesterday she was licking a lot again. So it's prob back to the vets again next wk at pay day. I'll use the shampoo from now til then.

      I asked about probiotics but he said they won't make any difference. Do take her to the vets for a check up.

      Good luck!

      I have been searching on the Internet as to why Female Dogs keep licking her private area and I come across your posting dated 2012 regarding your pet has the same issue.
      Our pet is a Westie as well and she has been starting to do this very often and sometimes she is in agony as she could not do it properly.
      Did you manage to know what was the cause of it and what was the solution?

      I appreciate if you could provide some advices and look forward to hearing from you soon.

      Thanks & Kind Regards
