I mean....are you freaking kidding me? I can't catch a break with this dog! Tess, help!! I've noticed that she's been licking and biting down there an awful lot, but I just assumed she was itchy from the mange. My roommate just said to not even mention it to the vet because he's going to want to do tons of diagnostics, and I'm not in the greatest position to pay for all of that right now.
Yeah, could be a yeasty infection. Definitely tell your vet. Poor pup has a lot of stuff going on right now with the treatment for mange and such, so her system may not be in total balance yet. Tell the vet you don't want to do lots of money of diagnostics but just treat what it most likely is.
Welcome to the emotional world of "puppy love"! Anytime they trip and fall down, eat a pine cone, have a symptom of something, we worry, worry, worry! She'll be OK. It's not likely to be serious. Get her to the vet. Be fully communicatvie with the vet in terms of what you can afford. You don't need cadillac diagnostics, just some advice and meds.
Your pup is still getting sorted out from her rough start. Have faith. You are doing a terrific job as a "dog Mom"! These are the toughest weeks! They are also very joyful in many ways, but exhausting too! You and pup will get through this stage. Things get more stable as she grows up.
Please do keep us up to date! I am sending healing vibes.
