    Default Tummy rashes on Bella & Cali

    Haley sent a picture of their rashes
    No changes in food or anything
    I was thinking maybe the grass is growing and it's getting their bellies
    Any suggestions?

    to me it looks like it very well could be an allergy....laundry soap, new shampoo, new blanket? Also heat rash? Hope you figure it out.

    Could be a heat rash I guess
    It has been rather warm Haley monitors there sun intake though so they won't get heat injuries

    It sure does look like heat rash, although the cause could be from numerous things. New shampoo, treats, and certainly could be grass. I hope not tho. Is it only one of your bullies or both?

    We had been fighting rashes on our bully for over a year. We tried everything available! We decided to get a water softener... and he cleared up! Appears the hard water was the issue for our guy.

    Moe had a belly rash when he first got him home... we switched out his bedding and it cleared up. It could have been a reaction to the wool blanket, or it could have been that the wool made him sweat too much.

    As soon as I saw the pics my immediate thought was what a lot of others have mentioned ... looks like a heat rash!

    You mentioned it is on both...but show only one bulldog's tummy. The reason I say this is...Cali had been pumped with who knows what while she was at the emergency vet. Wondering if it maybe a reaction to her body to all they did there? But if it is on both bulldogs that would not be the case then.

    Benadryl ALERGY the "lil' pink pill" ... 1 pill for a dog weighting 25lb...2 pills if they are a 50lb dog... You can give this to them every 8 hours.

    I would suggest a nice bath in shampoo you've used prior without issues. And think if you've did something different...new air freshener, laundry soap or fabric sheets...new anything. That looks miserable...If it's on both...makes me think it's environmental...or something new. Never seen a heat rash on a dog...though others have mentioned it. Do you have central air in your home? What's the temps inside the house. I can't see a heat rash developing while just outdoors for short periods...
