Dog at the vets

Hi. I just got back from taking my little Doggy to the vets. He is the sweetest little guy. I took him today because he keeps licking at his privates and it looked sore (sorry). The vet said that he has an infection from his licking so he took blood work just to be safe and he gave us a cone. He also gave us a cream to put on and dextrose?? He said it's basically sugar water because he has edema and is swollen from the infection. He said for us to put the sugar water on him (in that area), four times a day and that should help with the edema. Has anyone very heard of this? Maybe it's normal but I've never heard of sugar water for swelling?? And the fact that we have to do this ourselves makes me a little nervous. Thanks so much.

Hey! Did the vet check the anal glands? Could also be a bladder infection. Allergies could also be a reason for a lot of licking. Did you find out the source of your dogs problems? Any news?
