My Puppy has little blisters on her genital area
(San Diego, CA)
i have an almost 3 month old pitbull puppy and she had some sores in her genital area.
the ones i saw first were little red ones that eventually just dried up and disappeared.
now she has a new one that looks cloudy white and it looks like a blister. it is right by her vagina. what could it be?
This sounds like a staph infection. They're basically little pimples that can become infected (the white 'pus'/blister that you see).
They're often caused by the pup sleeping on damp bedding, or getting too hot when lying on a non-absorbent surface etc. They may need antibiotics to treat if the blisters have white tops and the skin around them is reddened.
Keeping her belly and genital area clean (use antibacterial soap) and dry helps too. I would recommend taking her to your vet so that he can see whether she needs to be treated with antibiotics.
Best of luck!
