    Default Red skin, tear stains , allergies ?

    What could this be ? Food allergies ? So Achilles tummy, jaw, chest and in between his legs has some red marks and spots. Doesn't cause him any pain or any real discomfort that I have noticed. Not sick or change in attitude, he's still super happy and full of energy. I just don't know what this could be. Allergies ? In the pics it looks like he has bumps but he doesn't, it's the color of his skin. I'm currently feeding him 4 star grain free Fromm Beef -img_0395-jpg-img_0397-jpg-img_0399-jpg-img_0404-jpg-img_0403-jpg

    To me this looks like seasonal, environmental and/or food allergies.
    You can give him an epsom salt bath with an ACV diluted rinse to help relieve it if it gets itchy…you can also add ACV to his food or water daily (a capful).

    Some recommend benadryl and/or gold bond powder to help. If you want to do the allergy testing to find out if it's diet related, that will help narrow down ingredients - environmental is a bugger and not too much you can do.

    From the pictures posted, it doesn't look severe…Bass' skin will turn pink when he gets over excited, I think it has something to do w/his blood pressure…at the vets office, his temp goes up because he's so worked up w/other dogs etc… His skin will get pink and he'll be hot to the touch. His nose and eyes run too when he's hyper/excited/emotional. Pay extra attention on his nose rope, between his paws and in his ears…Have you tried another Fromm flavor? You may want to consider Pork and Peas (give it at least two months) and keep a food journal.

    It could be food allergies. Have you tried a different formula of Fromm food? While you figure out a possible food or seasonal allergy issue you can clean up tear staining quickly with Tylan Powder sprinkled on food once a day. Use about 1/8 teaspoon until brown staining is gone.

    Looks more like an environmental allergy.... anything change in the house -- detergent or cleaner?
