Skin rash on both dogs
(Tuolumne County, California)
We have two black labs - siblings. Rash on belly to groin and the male (Bear) on arm and legpits. Female's (Nala) not as bad. Seems like it happened over the last week or so and getting worse daily.
They are both one year old. New daily routines.......We are putting up a yurt on property with poison oak etc. Recently cut a lot of brush for the site and they have been playing in and around the brush pile.
Also new surroundings for them 200 acres of wood with no one around except wild animals and vegetation, river. There are ticks on the property but this time of year they are not so prevalent and I haven't found any on the dogs. They are on tick medicine monthly although I'm not real good at remembering days.
The last few times on the property they have taken off for about 30 minutes, so no idea what they may have found in that time. Thought it could just be irritation from the "woods".
They have basically been inside dogs for their first year, with an outside run that does not have any vegetation. Daily walks but not in brushy areas. Daily runs on the property for the past few months but rash started in the last week.
The female seems to get the skinfold red areas since her removal of uterus, etc.
I have given them raw eggs in their dry food for the last few days but I wasn't really keeping track of when the rash started on Bear. The rashes are raised.
Our last dog lived 16 years with no vet bills except vaccines.
It's weird to even deal with this, but they BOTH have it. Any ideas?
