NeylasMom Posted October 14, 2016 Share Posted October 14, 2016 (edited) Here I him with my vajayjay posts again but Skye's vulva irritation is not resolving and I am so beyond frustrated right now. We did see improvement from the Apoquel and silver sulfa approach, but not enough so we went back and the vet gave us Muciprocin instead. Things seemed to be getting a bit better and then I ran out of the UT supplement she was on. Now she has what looks like urine scalding and is licking a lot. So she's back on Apoquel and a UT supplement and I am being super diligent about cleaning and watching her so she doesn't lick, but I think we need to do further digging.All of this to ask - what type of specialist does one see for this sort of thing? An internal medicine vet? I'm freaking downright broke between Zuri's osteo costs and everything happening with Violet, but I feel like my vet is a bit too laid back in her approach at times. I could probably go back and pester her, but I've now seen them 3 times for this with no major change in treatment plans. I want cultures or whatever other tests they could run and I want to be reassured ther are no tumors or other strange things going on. They keep saying her vulva is the problem and it is recessed, but we didn't have this problem for the first 4 1/2 years of her life so something has to be going on!
