|Allee has some sores on her lower belly and has been biting her feet like crazy the past week or so.
I have a couple of ideas of what it could be but really want your opinion.
One thing is her flea allergy...we have always kept it under control since 2006 with frontline plus. I have always halfed the tube of up to 25 pounds on her and Bama and it's always worked. In fact I always post about that on here. Well, on Aug 1st I had an applicator for up to 44 pounds so I just put a tiny bit on her...like 1/4 or so and same amt on Bama.
Could it be that I didn't put enough so it didn't last as long? Because the sore are in the same area and look a lot like when she had all the spots before she was diagnosed. Her flea allergy is pretty bad bc back in 2006 before I know about it she had sores, flakiness, and hair loss all on the back of her legs and belly.
The other thing is food. I usually feed her TOTW pacific and it even seems that if she eats Brodie's NB that she chews her feet less. The past few weeks she's been eating Evo herring and salmon that we got for free. Is there anything in it that you think could cause the sores and biting the feet?
I posted pics on her page 3 of her photobook bc I don't know how to paste here. Please look. The sores are on her lower belly near her private area. They were flakey and I scraped the flakey stuff off and bathed her, so they look even redder than they did before the bath.
If it's food or fleas I know how to treat that...I have dealt with all this before with her flea allergy and with food allergy and Brodie. But, one of the spots is sort of round, I don't know anything about it, but was worried it could be ringworm?
Please let me know what you think.
I am putting more frontline plus on her tomorrow (the full amount)
Ugh, I feel bad if it's my fault for not appying enough. As of 3 days ago there were no sores at all. they are usually due for flea meds the 1st.
And, might try her on Brodie's NB food.
It's irritating bc I have just been saying on here and to my hubby and family how good all the dogs skin and coat look.
