    I have posted this in health, but thought id put it here too!

    Im very worried about my 9 week old pup Bella.

    She has red and swollen little lady bits where she wee's from and she is itching all over. I have booked a vets app but cant get in till 5.30.

    I know you will tell me to go to the vets which i will just wondered if anyone has ever seen anything like this before?

    Thank you. xx

    Young puppies really shouldn't have cows milk. Mine get it occasionally as a treat but they're all fully grown so it could be that.

    it is more likely that cows milk would give her the runs if she cant cope with it rather than an allergic reaction. Far more likely it is a contact allergy. Have some thoughts about what she might have come into contact with in the last 24 hours. It could be something as simple as fleas, or you could have changed her bedding or shampood the carpet or walked her through some vegetation that doesnt agree with her. Hopefully the vet will clear it up quickly with medication and it will be a one off.

    I'm sure she'll be fine. It's maybe just a reaction to the milk and easily sorted

    Great thank you. My friend did buy her a bed on Sat, i did think of this and have put it away. Would it take this long to irritate her if its been about since Sat do you think? I did clean part of my carpet today but ive done that before.
    I cant wait to get to the vets, i feel for her so much. xx

    If it settles down now that you've taken the new bed away then just don't use it again. There's not much you can do about the cleaning though. Hopefully the vet can do something.

    The little one sat in a red ant nest and had bites on his bum I covered it in aloe vera gel and that seemed to sooth the itching and pain x

    Bless hope your little one gets better soon x

    Never known a 9 week old pup come into heat :eek: :D

    I don't think a puppy that young can go into heat. It's most likely some sort of allergic reaction but we'll know soon enough anyway.

    It sounds very much like an contact allergic reaction to something she has sat on, possibly ants, possibly a fabric treatment on the new bed. Does she sit a lot on anything else, I'm thinking she might be sensitive to the washing powder or liquid you use. A cows milk intolerance tends to give bad digestion if the problem is the lactose, but if it is the casein (milk protein) it can give sore and itchy skin. I'm casein intolerant, dairy products make my ears itch!
    Whatever it is, get aloe vera gel on it. It will soothe the inflamation and cool any itching. It's safe for internal use too so it won't matter if she licks it off.
