    There's a picture of last time. He was in so much pain he couldn't even lay down he trying to sleep sitting up. This rash went from nothing to this in like 3 1/2 hours.

    Poor fella.... that looks so, so painful -- I just want to hug him. So glad Bruno alerted you to it so you could get it addressed

    Oh wow, OUCH! Sassy's doesn't look that intense. I gave her 5mg of Claritin last night, and then again a few minutes ago. Its not as dark pink as it was yesterday, more of a medium-lighter pink. Maybe the Claritin is more effective for her than the benadryl.

    But Lawsy, she STINKS. I JUST gave her a bath yesterday in the anti fungal/antibacterial shampoo and she still just down right stinks. She smells like a dog that stays outside all the time and only gets a bath once in a while. She goes outside to potty, and play/excercise about 4-8 times a day. So she shouldn't smell this bad. And she doesn't have a lot of wrinkles for yeast to live in. She's not a wrinkly bulldog.

    Yes, it is possible that, just like everything else, the Claritin is a better option for you

    So the vet said contact dermatitis. Which is what we discussed on here. He gave her a steroid shot. When I told him i gave her the Benadryl and that it did not work, I tried the Claritin and she looked a little better this am than yesterday, he sort of rolled his eyes At me. I'm not very pleased with him, there is another vet in that practice that usually sees her, that I really like. He did her spaying surgery and her entropion surgery. Wish we could have seen him today. Anyway, the vet we saw today didn't say anything at all about continuing the Claritin. But I'm going to continue it, at least until she clears up.

    I'm glad the vet diagnosed her rash, at least you know it was some sort of an allergic reaction. Sometimes they can have a reaction and you may never know what caused it. 2 summers ago, Dozer woke up with hives all over his body, and I gave him Benadryl, they lasted for almost 3 days, but I don't know to this day what caused them.

    My bully has the exact same problem! The hotter it gets and the taller the grass gets the worse his belly gets. We cut the grass, give him 2 Benadryl a day, and cut the grass very short in the back yard. After all of that he's as good as new!

    Dermatitis is the Dx they give when they have no idea what caused it, and every vet seems to have the same treatment plan "steroid shot or cream" lol..

    I'd keep her away from the grass until it cleared up.
