My dog is getting red spots on its belly

My dog is getting red spots on its belly and they go away and come back. They are the size of a quarter. I don't know if this is related but a week before the spots he started throwing up and sleep all day.

You really need to take this dog to the vet, asap.

Sounds like it could be an allergic reaction, but any time a dog is vomiting and is sleepier than usual, or is lethargic, it is time for the vet.

The spots could be related, or he coudl have two different things going on.

The vet will be able to tell you what's up and it might be something simple, but you need to make sure you know what it is in case it is serious.

You definitely need to make a vet appointment and have him examined as soon as possible.

A rash by itself can be many different things, but a rash that is accompanied by throwing up and lethargy may be something more serious. Your dog may have something as simple as an allergy or as serious as parasites. Have him checked out ASAP.

Do you live in a humid climate? Ringworm may be a possibility and if this is the case you can contract it as well. Take your dog to the vet, the lethargy and vomitting are distressing.

your dog most likely has worms. i worked at as a kennel technician/ vet assistant. this was common in puppies.
