Customer Question

Hi my cocker spaniel has just had a litter of pups she has a sore on her back which does not seem to bother her . This morning it looks worse it's red and a little scabby I'm taking her and the pups to a vet tomorrow ( the pups are getting there tails docked) but don't really want to leave it until then. Can you recommend anything I can put on it? We have a heat lamp in the shed and not sure if I should leave it on incase it is making it worse . Would be grateful for your advice .
