Q. My female Jack Russellhas been licking her genitals guite often lately, like she is always checking herself. Should I be concerned?
A. If your dog is elderly and she hasn't been neutered, you should have her checked over because she could be suffering with pyometra or an infection of her uterus. If not, you just want to have her checked over but not with the same urgency, to understand what is causing the problem, if it's a skin condition, incontinence, or any kind of growth that is disturbing her.
