Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello, this is Dr. Sara. That is good that you bathed him. If you are planning to take him to the vet that is the best idea. The other thing you could do at home would be to apply a topical cortisone cream if you have any. OR, do you have any ear ointments you have used in the past for him? Anything topical from a previous vet visit?
Ahhh I see. Well, if you can get out to get a topical skin lotion with hydrocortisone (people ointment/cream) this would help to calm it down until you can get him to a vet. Pet stores may have something as well, I just don't know what you have access to. You want something with hydrocortisone in it.
Yes, for sure, if he will let you. It just might be too sore to do this. And it's not something you want to keep doing because you want the skin to dry up but for the immediate, it would be fine.
You are very welcome.
