why does my dog have red bumps on her stomach
My Online Vet Response to small red marks on Dog's stomach and groin by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman
Hi Jenny, Eddie may have a. From the photo you sent it looks like he has hair loss, with some pimples and scabs on his abdomen, and food allergy will cause him to itch. Many proteins, including eggs and whey protein (in dairy products) can cause allergies. Look in the left column under Illness/Remedies and click on Skin Conditions, then scroll down to food allergies. Dairy products, including butter, are not good for his skin. And dairy products will cause loose stool in dogs. Start with a stool sample to check him for parasites, then improve his diet,(see above), this will avoid allergies, diarrhea, and improve his health. I would also advise a total blood panel to check for underlying problems that may make his skin more susceptible to allergies, hair loss and scabs.
Problems such as hypothyroidism, Cushing's Disease, and diabetes can be detected on a blood test. I would advise finding a holistic veterinarian to guide you.

DISCLAIMER: The above should never replace the advice of your local veterinarian, as they have the ability to evaluate your dog in person Related Pages: -, -, -, -, - If your dog suddenly gets a rash or an allergic reaction despite having no history of sensitivity, then it may be contact dermatitis.
Symptoms usually develop after a period of repeated physical contact and skin sensitization, and contact dermatitis occurs most often on the stomach, the scrotum, and/or the legs (or in other places where there is thin hair or no hair). Aside from poison ivy and poison oak, your dog could develop a rash by coming into contact with topical antibiotics, flea collars, flea medication, metals like nickel, grasses and pollens, soaps/shampoos, carpet deodorizers, insecticides, dyes, materials such as rubber, wool, leather, and plastic, poison ivy sap, road salt (melting salt), detergents, solvents, acids and alkalis, and petroleum byproducts.
Dyes and perfumes are also common irritants. If your dog has a contact allergy caused by detergent, for example, his rash will appear on the belly where his blanket or bedding has been touching it or where he has been laying on a rug or carpet. Switching to non-perfumed, sensitive-skin detergents and cleansers may give your dog relief. How to Check If your dog has been outside or in the woods, the rash may be from a plant irritant. Check your own laundry room and cleaning supplies. Did you switch to a new carpet cleanser? Is the laundry detergent that you use full of perfumes? Shampoos can also cause contact allergies. If you suspect that your dog's shampoo or grooming rituals are causing the issues, youБll need to switch products.
Ask your groomer to use a sensitive skin shampoo and to hold off on the perfumed powder and products. If you groom your dog at home, try an unscented pet shampoo or one that is medicated. Medicated shampoos often provide itch relief right away for your pet as you work to get the other factors under control. The only way to treat contact dermatitis is to avoid exposure to the irritant, whatever it may be. To get rid of the skin irritation, your veterinarian can prescribe an antihistamine. It's important that you keep your dog from licking the irritated area because it could lead to bacterial and yeast infections, which could further aggravate the skin and exacerbate the problem.
