    Default I think Lily scratched herself raw.

    I think Lily scratched herself raw!!
    She was fine this morning. I feed her and washed her up a bit and again she was just fine.
    The next thing I know I look at her and she is bleeding on her face.
    Actually she has been scratching at her eyes lately. I think she has allergies. Her eyes are always watery and they must itch her.
    I give her Benadryl twice a day but I don't think it's working to well for her.
    Is there anything else I could try?
    Can you guys please tell me what to do for this?
    I'm very worried.
    She has her regular vet appointment on Monday. I'll have him check it out.
    So far I cleaned it up, and put a tiny bit of peroxide on it.
    Was that ok? So I do something more?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,Lisa

    HP cleans it.. I think Desitin would help more than HP. Careful not to get it in her eyes.

    @BruceP I put a tiny bit of Desitin on the cut.
    How often should I do this? And for how long?

    @Lily122511 why not use both. hp then some desitin just to make sure there is no infection from the scratching. i think the air is bad right now as my dog who never has eye trouble has watery goopy eyes now. ask the vet for some hydoxyzine antihistamine or see if your pup can take zyrtec also. i use both zyrtec and benadryl with sarah as the vet said it was ok. i give zyrtec and if she still has symtpoms then a benadryl to help. maybe they have allergy drops to put in the eyes for dogs. if no drops maybe something to flush the eyes to get the allergen out. good luck hope he gets better.

    @cowsmom,
    Thanks I was planning on asking the vet about zyrtec.
    Didn't know you could use zyrtec & Benadryl together, thanks for that info.
    I do have it here but I don't know how much & how often to give it to her.
    She is 16 weeks and weighs about 20 lbs.
    I have to ask the vet.

    I wish I knew why she did this. I don't want this to happen again!
    I have to talk to the vet I guess.
    I'm clueless here.

    @cowsmom,

    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!

    @Lily122511 call the vet and see if you can give more benadryl and do you have some socks or something to put on her feet to keep her from scratching it.

    @Lily122511 also maybe give him a bath and then wash his face with a baby wipe real good. see if you can wipe off whatever is bothering him if its environmental. maybe keep him inside and windows closed till monday. just a thought
