Stomach rash

    My girl has had a rash on her stomach/groin area for awhile now. Some days it’s worse than others. The vet said it’s very common for pit bulls to have allergies, especially since I live in a dry climate and to give her Benadryl. I’m considering trying a new food though, especially since the current grain free debate. She is on Taste of The Wild High Prairie right now. I know there are a ton of dog foods out there and I get overwhelmed searching for a new one! Does anyone have a dog with the same skin issue that would suggest a certain food to try? Preferably no more expensive than what I’m paying now (~$50 for a 30 lb. bag)! Thanks!

    Yes, i live in the southwest and weve had terrible skin problems/allergies.

    I usually is environmental but changing to a limited ingredient food may help you determine if it is food or not.

    You should definitely keep her away from licking the area. I would bathe her with an antibacterial antifungal shampoo and let it stay on for 10 min. They sell one at PetSmart with a bulldog on front. It is pretty good. I only use vinegar to clean most of my house and I wash bedding, etc. with an unscented laundry det. Wipe her down after being outside with a damp cloth and then a dry cloth..focus on the paws. PM me if you want.

    You can try a food with salmon like Victor and see if it helps. Taste of the wild has a salmon flavored food too. Im not sure if it is limited ingredient though.

    probiotics help too. I use Herbsmith microflora.

    Thank you for the tips! I will definitely try all of that! Victor was actually one of the brands I was looking at trying. I bought her TOTW Salmon when she was a puppy and she didn't care for it. But it would be worth trying again if it will help!

    Duoxo Chlorhexidine wipes help too. i would wipe her belly and all red areas a couple of times a day. Do you think the benedryl is helping? If not, there are other things that might help more.

    A person I know had the same problem with their dog. They took it to a vet who gave it a shot for allergies that killed the dog.
