Rashy bottom post-hospital stay
Hello first I wanted to give my dog's story and ask for a little recommendations.
Sadly a few days ago on Wednesday, Oreo (3 year old coton de tulear) hind legs stopped moving and we took her to the vet right away and found out she had herniated a disc in her back. While it was touch and go for a while (we opted for steroid treatment over surgery due to previous seizures the dog has had) today she made enough recovery to come home to us and while she has at least three weeks more to recover, the vet said she made an excellent progress (60%-70% mobility back) and can return to full strength with no long term pain.
Unfortunately while in the vets care she developed a very bad diaper rash which seems very painful I am worried will cause her to tweak her back. Any suggestions on how to treat a diaper rash and general care for this type of injury would be appreciated.
(P.S. we were very happy with the vets care and treatment plan going forward and are not asking for medical advice just need assistance on how to treat a diaper rash on a dog)
