For a couple weeks now (since being groomed actually) Pippa has at times been trying to get at her vulva and is quite vicious sounding as she's trying to do that. I have bathed the area with salt water thinking that some shampoo residue was left behind from her grooming. Things were okay for a few days but again this morning she is at herself and when I looked, the skin around the area is red and the urethra is red and irritated and the opening is blood red while the rest of the skin is normal coloured. Should I make a vet appt. or continue to cleanse the area? She has no other symptoms of a UTI (frequent urination, straining, etc.). I am not looking "there" frequently so am unsure if the red urethra is normal.
