Dog Skin Rash Has Moved to Underside and Legs
Dog Skin Rash Photo 1
I first noticed a problem with my dog's skin on Sunday. After a little research I realized that she had hives. Her fur was raised out in nickel and quarter size spots, as I looked underneath the fur to see her skin, I noticed red spots.
I gave her some Benadryl and an oatmeal bath, the spots and raised bumbs went away. I gave her more Benadryl yesterday morning just in case. When I came home from work she looked fine and was acting normal.
The whole time she has not been lethargic, acting in pain, or itching and scratching. It was as if she had no clue there was a problem.
I didn't give her anything last night as I thought she was getting better. This morning the rash has moved to her underside, all over her belly and inside her legs. It doesn't look like the hives from Sunday.
I haven't changed her diet or shampoo. She doesn't have a big yard to run in so she gets walks in the neighborhood.
She's never had a reaction like this before and her environment hasn't changed.
I just bought K9 Advantage instead of Frontline because I heard Frontline hasn't been working. I haven't put the Advantage on her yet because I didn't want to make the rash worse.
I did notice her bite at her leg as if she had a flea, but after looking through her fur I couldn't find anything. Any ideas?
She is a five year old pittbull boxer mix.
