    Cali...what was the Vet's dx and what is Temaril?

    Not sure I agree with giving Bella Cephalexin as it doesn't look bacterial to me.
    Temaril is for relief of itching. The vet said she wasn't sure what is causing it. She asked me to call her back in a few days to follow-up if it didn't clear. I didn't do that, and I probably should.

    Hmm, this is interesting. No new carpet. I use the same floor cleaner.

    I did start spraying weed and grass killer in the yard. But, Bella doesn't spend a ton of time on that part of the yard. If anything her paws would be affected more than her face, I'd think.

    I do agree that it could be something she's smelling/getting into.

    She's been on Apoquel for months now, too, which has been a miracle for controlling her allergies.

    What is this red, blotchy skin, and how do I get rid of it??

    I suppose a bug bite is possible. I wonder if the side-effects of a bug bite would last this long.

    If she is allergic to that bug bite, sure. Banks got bit by a spider once and blew up like crazy

    Could it be the laundry detergent or softener that her bedding is washed in? Have you cleaned the carpet in the area where she lays lately? It may be her food...what does she eat?
    Maybe she's allergic to all those kisses you've been giving her!

    Not much carpet in my place. She sleeps on a Coolaroo and in her crates...and there's no bedding to wash. She's rarely on my bed, but I have always used Tide, and it's never given her a problem.

    An allergy test revealed that she has tons of allergies (dust, mold, pork, peas, etc.), so I put her on Fromm Chicken A La Veg. (She's not allergic to chicken.) It didn't solve all her problems, but it's better than all the other Fromm flavors. She's also on apoquel. I'm at a total loss.

    It doesn't seem to bother her, but it's just...there. I dunno.

    I find that Ruckus and Regina can get a similar redness of they drink water and their face stays soggy. I try to wipe their mouths after they drink and eat and I find it helps. Not sure if it's the same.
