Round and Red Dog Skin Rash - Not Raised
by Dawn F.
(Orchard Park, NY, USA)
Belly and upper hind leg area
My 5 year old adopted & spayed greyhound, Maya, started with one red spot on her hind leg two days ago. It was a perfect circle. Then there were a couple yesterday. Today she has them all over her lower belly area near the top of her hind legs (see pics).
Checked for fleas and did not find any. She is NOT itching them and has no change in behavior. Still her happy docile self.
She also has some red spots under her arm pit area (see pic) She did do a lot of running this weekend around the yard due to the nice weather. Also a lot of laying in the grass. We do not put pesticides on our lawn, but live in a community that our neighbors do.
None of the spots are raised.
She is on a raw food diet. Bravo. Gets vegetables, salmon oil, wheat germ, & yogurt.
I have homeopathic remedies.
Use Shaklee laundry detergent.
No bath recently.
No vaccinations in 3 years.
My conventional husband just put some flea medicine on her.
