Red Spots on Dog's Groin & Lower Belly
I am the owner of Lola, the dog with thrombocytopenia due to a reaction to an sulfa based antibiotic. I wrote to you a few weeks ago
Today I noticed a few red spots on her belly and near her groin. I am very concerned because she is recovering from anemia and thrombocytopenia.
She has had three complete blood counts done and according her last one three weeks ago, all of her platelets and blood cells have been back to normal, including her reticulocytes.
Lola came back from the groomers two days ago , so I'm not sure how long the spots have been there.
I don't think she has been itching or licking more than usual.
She's been on the contrary very energetic since I have changed her diet. (I recently switched her to an half raw ground meet beef, and half canned grain free diet.
I have also been giving her acidophilus and Immuplex by standard process day and night like you have suggested(I just started two days ago).
Please let me know what your opinion and suggestions are.
