Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Foxy has this issue.
Would it be possible to send a clear photo of the affected skin?
Does she ever scoot her bum on the floor or have trouble with her anal glands?
When was she last treated for parasites and which product was used?
Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I shall certainly try.
Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.
The most common causes for these symptoms include a flea reaction, anal gland disease or bacterial infection.
A vet visit is best to examine him and his skin. He may well need some medicine such as a medicated wash, anti itch medicine and oral antibiotics.
Do ensure he is up to date with a good quality parasite prevention such as Advocate. I would also prevent any chewing with a buster collar if needed.
This is just Dr Linda checking in to ensure this is all OK?
