Redness around dog's belly button
by Clinton Sheppard
(San Marcos, CA)
Our dog's skin and coat look great besides this rash-like semi circle around his belly button.
We have cleaned it many times and have used Sentry HC PetRelief which contains Hydrocortisone. We use oatmeal soap free shampoo when he gets a bath which is amazing stuff. Everything on his body looks great but this area and some days it's really red and some days it look normal. When it is red and when we clean it it does not bother him in anyway at all. I was thinking some sort of hernia and have even put pressure on it and it did not bother him in anyway.
He is a 1 yr old Boston Terrier and is very active, has no problems with eating and never runs out of energy. Drinks plenty of water when needed.
His diet is a little over 2 cups a day of Blue Buffalo small breed dog food 2 times a day 2 cups total. We have tried the fish and the turkey brand. We really hope since it is really red tonight and we are moving soon and can't afford a vet visit right this minute. He is up to date on shots, etc.
