Q. My dog is going to have her puppies any day now she has been cleaning her private area to the point that it's raw her teats are very red her bottom
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. I would be curious to know how many days she is. Has she started the first signs of labor? Nesting? Finding a dark place? If she is overdue of even on her delivery day, I would have a vet evaluate via ultrasound. Otherwise just do your best to keep her comfortable. Coconut oil is fine to apply to any irritated areas as it is antibacterial and safe for her to lick.
