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!
