I noticed my dog scratching at the neck area under his chin. Thinking it was his collar bothering him from sweating and all, I went to take off his collar and noticed his skin is very red and he has lost some fur. At the bottom of the area from where has been scratching it seems to be all matted up and there is a slight odor in that area as well. The military base vet where I am stationed is closed for the evening and won't re open until tomorrow morning. Is there anything I can do until then?
You can clean the area with antibacterial soap. You can also apply bacitracin to the area. Good luck, vetcare
