As I usually do (as advised on here and which usually works very well), I applied some diluted pinetarsol to the area. I could almost see her sigh with relief.
Not long after I went to bed, she hadnt been licking/scratching and she seemed fine.
Early this morning when I got up to take her for her walk though, she had obviously been licking at it. No big deal, it usually takes a few days for it all to die down.
Then on our walk, I realised she was lethargic. She wasn't really into the walk or even playing fetch- usually she LOVES it.
All morning she has been flat and sooky. I may be anthromorphising, but she also did look a little queasy.
When I left her at home with OH she was snoozing, which is not like her- especially since she didnt really tire herself out on our walk.
I just checked with him and she has been up and about but gone back to sleep.
I'm not toooo worried, she is still eating, had a couple of normal poos, hasnt vomited and is still alert.
But OH has suggested that maybe the Pinetarsol is the culprit? I notice on the bottle is says to not ingest it and obviously by licking she has done so.
So, anyone know if Pinetarsol is toxic? Googling is not coming up with anything.
Regardless, Im not sure I'd use it again.
