I check my pups ears, teeth, gums, etc twice a day(lol I'm a worry wort) and have just noticed that she has dark brownish crust(sort of look like scabs but there are no wounds) around and on her vulva.
I just wet some tissues and tried to clean it although it doesn't come off easy.
Her skin has always been slightly darker around that area but I haven't noticed any crusty stuff before now.
When she had her ear infection 2 months ago, her ear had some brownish crust in it too which looks very similar(the vet said it was just a small infection and gave me eardrops that fixed it).
She is showing no obvious signs of going into heat or having UTI - I have never seen blood in her urine or feces.
She doesn't lick the area more than she needs to.
She's 7 months old and will be desexed next month.
I'm thinking maybe a yeast infection but I honestly haven't got much of a clue about the signs and symptoms of it.
Any idea what this could be? I'm not majorly worried.. yet lol
