    Oh she just scratched it open again.
    And now it's bleeding again.
    I can't keep her from scratching it.
    It's so raw I don't know what to do!
    oh this is the worst.. Duke would do this quiet often..makes you crazy then you feel so bad for them.. I would make sure you keep the wrinkles dry then use the desitin like Bruce told you.. once you go to the vet hopefully they can give you direction on what else to do.. We give Duke Zrtec every other day . he has terrible allergies and this is suggested by his dermatologist . he did not do well on Benadryl.. made him very tired.. also Zrtec does not have the same ingredients.. There is something in the benadryl that causes dry eyes .. and because Duke ALSO had eye issues we had to switch.. Good Luck to you.. let us know what the vet says.. also another trick keep her occupied we would give Duke kongs with treats and nylabones..

    @BabyDuke,
    That's exactly how I feel.
    I feel so helpless.
    I keep following her around like a crazy lady making sure she does not scratch.
    I'm even getting the stink eye for it. Lol
    Thanks for the tips.
    I'll try anything at this point.
    Oh and btw Duke is so handsome!!
