• I took my dog to the groomers, one day after she keeps licking her vulva and is now swollen and red, should I bathe her in oatmeal shampoo or see a vet?

    Hi Annie,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. Licking at the area can cause inflammation or swelling but there can be other more severe causes for this as well. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of this and the treatment she needs after they have examined her.

Need more information or advice?
