    OK im back again i took my boo to be groomed and they washed him with some special kind of shampoo forgot what they called it. He didn't hive up, But a few days later he is scratching again really bad.. the bottom of his stomach is really red and raw from digging, I gave him a benadryl, but he still seems irritated. I wanted to get you guys opinion before i decide to take him back to the vet again tomorrow... I have noticed that when he goes out to use the bath room its alot of nets around him when he come back. Im not sure if nets bite, but could they be the problem?

    Sounds like Boo is certainly having an allergic reaction to something! If he has a skin infection, it will take some detective work to discover what it is. Possibly antibiotics to help get it under control. The first pic you posted kinda looks like a hot spot, which is usually due to food. Any new treats? Also many times they can develop an allergy to a food they have had no problems on before. Other things to think of is laundry soap, new bedding, carpets, toys, chews, shampoo (already discussed...)?

    The only thing I use on Amber is oatmeal shampoo and in between baths I give her an arm and hammer baking soda wash. I works great; just some warm water in the bath tube, some baking soda in the water and I rub her down with it. I started doing this years ago with the Great Danes in the winter when you really don't want to bath them too much but they get musty smelling without a bath. It makes them smell great and there are less irritations for the skin. Amber gets more baking soda rubs than actual baths with the oatmeal shampoo and she smells great and no irritations. It is cheap to use and almost everyone has it in the house. Good luck.

    I went through this too and finally paid the $300 for an allergy test. When I changed the food, cutting out the many ingredients his panel said he was allergic to, (and there were many, oats, barley, alfalfa, white potato - things even great dog foods have) the spots went away. I am very mad right now though, he has three of those spots right now, no doubt from him getting into the cat food a few times. They are never red, just crusty and bits of hair come out. I keep them clean and put Muricin on them. They seem to take a long time to heal but they don't get worse and he doesn't scratch at them, so I didn't take him to the vet this time and we are assuming it's from sneaking cat food, which is full of everything he is allergic too. Also, just a note, out guy is allergic to oatmeal, so we don't use oatmeal shampoo, but prefer Etiderm and Malasab anti yeast.
