Just got an update from Beasley's 2nd vet visit. She's gained weight. Now she's a whopping 11.5 lbs...And her ear infection has cleared up...so no more ear drops!

She does have what the Vet described as a dog-version of Diaper rash. I guess she gets so low to go potty that she splashes on herself. He suggested just using normal diaper rash cream, any suggestions?

Good vet report, especially about Beasley's ear infection! Re diaper rash cream -- head out to your nearest CVS and grab all the jars of "Dr. Smith's Diaper Rash Cream" that you can find. It is being discontinued and is 1/2 price and is the best stuff around. Every time I pass a CVS, I go in and buy them up so, if you live in the Tampa Bay area, you might have trouble finding any left! :biglaugh:

When my son had bad diaper rash (as in second degree skin irritation), my favorite was always Kroger Brand Diaper Rash cream. I found that it was thicker and stayed on much longer.

I used hydrocortisone 1% on Charlie once out of desperation. It worked, but careful she won't lick it. Check out the petstore, they might have something. Or soaked a sponge of light baking soda water, clean the affected area. A friend told me it worked.

I've also used Otomax on Miss Shiloh for this problem. You get it from the vet--it's more of a liquid than a cream, and it can also be dropped into the ears for ear infection. It's not greasy or sticky.

Another suggestion re urine irritation -- get some baby wipes (not doggie wipes -- they are outrageously expensive -- I buy the newborn wipes as they are especially gentle) and give her a gentle wipe after she urinates. Then, 2 or 3x a day, after area is dry, put on the diaper rash cream. The reason I like the Dr. Smith's is that it is quickly absorbed into the skin and, therefore, doesn't end up on the carpet! Maggie must like the feel of it -- she is great about letting me put it on.

Suzy has not had any type of irritation but every other day I do wipe her areas with a baby wipe. When Suzy goes potty she does it half female and half male. She squats and lifts a leg! Poor beagle she may be confused /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Really, I just wipe his behind with a bath towel, I have some used old ones in the garage.
Charlie is 1 1/2 years old, still kind of confuse of pee pee and poo poo. He would stand on his one hind leg,lift up the other and poo instead. :biglaugh: There are times he lift it up too high he trip over.
