My dog is affected on her vulva. It appeared in July ‘08 and hasn’t cleared. It actually spread out a bit. After the recent Prednisone treatment that lasted one month was stopped, because it wasn’t working, she is now on the latter of the medicine listed. Her vulva area is swollen and red again.
The fact that changes disappear after treatment of corticosteroids, such Prednisone, and not responding of antibiotic treatment it indicates on some allergy state. Use some sensitive dog shampoo when you bath your dog, because shampoo can often be cause of allergic reaction. Swelling is a sign of estral cyclus in bitches, have on mind hidden estrus. If there is a discharge make microbiological testing for microorganisms, especially Trichimonas and Fungi.
