    DefaultGolden Retriever or Yellow lab FEMALE owners....

    I've never had a female so I don't know if this is normal or not. Why is Macy so red in that area? Is that normal?
    Sorry it's so blurry, but you get the idea.

    My brown girl is like this a bit - it is from licking. just like eyes run on the little dogs and they can get stains that go down the nose - the saliva does the same thing when they clean themsleves.

    Ditto what Sunshines Finn said. My female yellow Lab licks down there a lot. The vet told me that sometimes bacteria will thrive down there since her "hole" is a little different than normal (kinda covered up) and to just watch it for irritation, infection, etc.

    Dark like Macy's, Dani?
    I think I'll post this in my Golden forum, too.

    Brooklyn's girl parts get that red when she's been licking a lot. The problem occurs when she doesn't dry out down there and then gets a bacterial or yeast infection. We try to wipe her at least once daily with a baby wipe to keep it clean for her so she won't lick as much and we'll also trim the fur a little bit to keep it dry.

    I just use CVS brand - as long as they are unscented they should be fine.

    Hey...I can't tell from the picture...are her girl parts tucked in a fold of skin or do they protrude out a bit? Brooklyn's are "tucked" and that causes the most problems because all the moisture gets stuck in that fold. The vet said we may even eventually need to operate so she doesn't get infections...but we keep wiping her and hope for the best.

    The wipes really do make a difference!

    I haven't looked that close, but they appear to be tucked. Did your vet recommend using the wipes Melissa?
