possible allergy??

8 posts in this topic

since the dog went out on his first hunt of the season a couple weeks ago i have noticed red spots around his groin area and very runny eyes. could this be a allergy? ive never encountered this one before. should i try some benedryl(spelling)?

if not an allergy, any possible thoughts of what it could be??

Be careful about Benedryl. My vet says not to use it long term. I give it to my lab occasionaly.

Interesting...did he say why?

My vet said there are no long term issues. I feed my dog 4 in the am and 4 in the pm for seasonal allergies.

do you guy think this is what it could be...im more worried about the red spots in the groin area. i cant tell if they are all over him due to his coat.

It could be an allergy and if it is it may need a topical cream to help treat. I have run across this before. The spots were a larger area...probably a couple of inches across.

That being said it could be any number of things and I would take him to the vet if the spots have not cleared up over a couple weeks.

yeah, they looked a little better this morning. more pink than red. hopefully they clear. this has already been $1000 year at the vet.

Hopefully it clears up for him......it could also be something like ring worm. So...if it does not clear up take him in.

I know all about vet expenses.....these guys are not cheap! And I just added a puppy to my lineup.....hopefully he does not have the issues my 3.5 year old does!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
