    Exclamation Freaking OUT!

    Okay - I know you guys cant tell what this may be - but I am REALLY freaking out!

    Just before when we went outside for her to do a pee, Mollie did the bum-dragging thing ONCE on the cement. Just a few minutes ago she was doing it CONTINUOUSLY! I am really freaking out - especially after all these posts about bum-dragging!
    She has been given worming tablets REGULARY!
    I checked her anus-area and around her vagina, it looks RED!
    I told dad and he just told me her 'but must be itchy'
    What do I do?!?? I am REALLY freaking out here!!!
    She is acting normal and hse has stopped doing it now, but I am so worried!

    Vet. Sounds like a yeast infection of some sort.

    SLOW COMPUTER! GRR!

    Umm, trying to look up Yeast Infection on google now.

    Just had a better look at her tummy, etc and IMFG, her tummy is COVERED in small little, rash-like red bumps! This is happening so quickly!
    She is acting normally, mum and dad are asleep!

    Demi, CALM DOWN!!!!!!!....breathe...in...out...in...out

    Okay, firstly if she was dragging herself on the concrete then the redness on her vagina may have been from that. She's obviously got an itch, the redness on her tum MAY be caused by something in the garden which is also affecting her lady bits. Did the lawn get mowed today?

    Others will have other suggestions as to what may be causing it.

    In the meantime, see if you have got something that will help with the itchies and redness, Lucas's Paw Paw Ointment, Aloe Vera? See what you've got in the medicine cabinet. Failing that, if you have some Aloveen Shampoo, might be worth diluting a teeny amount in some water and dabbing that on the area.

    If she's still red and sore tomorrow morning, I'd suggest getting the vet to have look at it.

    A yeast infection - if that's what it is - is not a wake the parents up emergency. FFS.

    Frosty does all the things you describe *occasionally* and the butt dragging is cos she sometimes gets a dag if she eats long grass without chopping up into short bits. The red spots are usually when she's been doing a lot of frog legged crawling (commando crawls) on the local ovals and the fresh cut grass irritates her tummy. It all goes away after a few hours. If it is really freaking me out, I put aloe vera goo from the leaf on it.

    If the problem was persistant, ie she was butt dragging at every opportunity, and the red spots were getting worse not better after a few hours, I'd be off to the vet as soon as they open.

    It's an emergency is for when dog has a massive bleeding injury, has just been bitten by a snake, or is having trouble breathing or similar, like you think she will die before the vet opens.

    Demi, do you have ANY anti-itch shampoos or something like that in your medicine cabinet?

    Do you have any aloe vera plants outside in the garden?

    I also agree this doesn't warrant waking the vet.

    Bath the area in cool water and pat dry if you don't have any dog suitable creams like paw paw ointment, if it persists and you are worried make an appointment at a reasonable hour tomorrow.

    At the moment the vet is dealing with car accidents, puppy stuck in birth canal etc.
