hey, u have the same problem with my goldie when he had his vaccination. he had rashes all over his bodies, more and more and more........ ard the neck, body, tail, etc.. i took him back to the vet again, and the vet jus told me, "its normal for puppies to have rashes." and... jus give me some antibiotics.. and it recovers after taking antibiotics. BUT!! after a week, the rashes comes back again... But urs might be reacting with the vaccination he/she took or simply because of the warm weather..
Re: [laurentia] Puppy's bad skin problem!! Help!
there r 3 main causes of allergy:
environmental issues : e.g. allergy to the detergent u used on the floor, allergy to dust, allergy to shampoo that u use on him, etc...
solution : hmm.. u might have to try changing shampoos or detergent.. try to keep the hse clean..
fleas, ticks : some dogs r allergy to fleas and ticks (check out one of the thread "mange" )
solution : spray "frontline"
food : there is 3 common food that causes allergy, corn, wheat and soy bean(look out for signs of biting of tail n paws). not only these, some dogs r allergy to chicken, milk, cheese, gluton, etc..
solution : ok, no choice, you have to test the food one ur dog and c how it progress. oh yeah, another choice, bring ur dog to skin specialist. but i think will be painful. cos i have seen pictures on how they test. (1st, they shave an area of the body bald, then make several markings on that area with marker pen(abt 20 markings) then the doc will inject diff food that had been process into liquid forms into the markings, then, will c which marking will have reaction to the injection..) <-- fastest way to check for food allergy..
i'm not saying all these to scare u , jus telling u to take note of that.. heehee. so far, i think my dog is allergy to wheat. i have stop giving him food that contain wheat and woooo!!~~ he gradually improves! and remember, applying anticeptics(most pple [me too]) in this forum uses "savlon" by johnson n johnson) on the rashes will help to soothe the itch and heal the wounds. oh yeah.. i also bath him with dillute detol solution every week.
*to all dog lovers, pls do not breed ur dogs if they have any skin allergies *
