Contact an emergency animal hospital ASAP and don’t let your dog scratch the affected area
- Contact the vet before travelling to ensure they are able to see your pet. They may also need to give you specific instructions. Some regular hospitals may be able to treat your pet.
- Do not feed your dog. The emergency vet will likely need to sedate your dog, and in these cases it is ideal if your dog doesn’t have a full stomach.
- Don’t let your dog lick/scratch the affected area. Put a cone on her if you have one.
