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!

    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
