    Hi All

    The other day I noticed that in each crease of skin on either side of Pips lady bits, it looked like she has been nibbling at the skin. It looked almost like dried blood, like she had been picking at it. Quite dark in colour.

    She is totally fine in all other respects, I just wondered if anyone else had had this in their dog? There is not excess hair down there, she is cleaning herself as normal. Were not sure if she is over cleaning maybe?

    Thanks!

    Hi

    She had her lady op a month or so ago...I dont want it to go nasy, but I doubt there will be any cream for it as she will lick it off! Should I maybe wipe her bits once a day with a wet wipe?

    i WOULDNT USE A WET WIPE MAYBE WIPE HER WITH COOLED BOILED SALTED WATER VERY DILUTED. oNE PART SALT TO 10 PARTS WATER. aND MAKE SURE SHES WELL DRY. iF SHE LICKS TO MUCH COULD END UP WITH AN INFECTION OTHERWISE.

    It can't be sweating, dogs only sweat through their paws, they don't have sweat glands in the skin of their bodies. The aloe vera should sort it out.
