Hi, anyone can give me an idea how to deal with rashes? My dog's skin is very sensitive and he can easy get rash from laying on the dirty floor, for example. My other dog is fine, so it is not contagious. /Thanks

Getting wet and- dirty is fun

Well just a few things I can suggest. Have you seen what happens when you change his diet to a different food?

I would also keep a journal of what things bother his skin. Maybe there is a connection with the different things that bother his skin.

Sorry I'm probably not much help...but just some ideas.

Riley has this issue. He is actually allergic to grass, trees, pollen, etc.

The vet suggests not letting him outside first thing in the morning when the grass is wet from dew, also to wipe his paws/belly with a towel when he comes in.

I put cortizone cream (over the counter) on any rashes that do form.
