Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Has she created a sore or redness in the area?
2- What is the name of the medication she is on?

There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

No redness or sores. This is only when she is clipped when she scratches

Hello,
I am sorry to hear about Maisie. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.

It appears Dr. Peter has opted out; can I help you?

It would help to know what tablets she is getting; I don't want to recommend anything you are already trying.

Just been clipped again and scratching again. Seems to be near the back of her stomach, just as a matter of interest I rubbed her stomach all over with fe fresh towel and it seemed to cool her for a while. Sorry that was fem fresh small tissue.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for that information.

I am still curious: what are the tablets that you give from your vet?

It sounds like the skin on her stomach must be very sensitive to being clipped. I would try putting some ointment containing hydrocortisone, like Cortaid cream, on the itchy area. Try to keep her from licking the cream for 5 minutes after applying it.

I would ask the groomer to not clip her stomach that short next time. It could also be the shampoo that is used, so ask about a hypoallergenic shampoo next time, such as oatmeal shampoo.

Let me know if this is helpful, and what else I can answer.
