    Default My Tinkerbell is almost 6 months old - horrible rash, spots under her belly

    Hi, my Tinkerbell is almost 6 months old, she has developed a rash all over her under belly and back legs! I was feeding her redford naturals grain free lamb and sweet potatoes, vet said food or environment allergy, so I switched to nature's domain salmon and sweet potatoes. Shes not better, did a round of antibiotics in case it was an infection, and prescription spray and shampoo! Will attach pics!
    Any advice and help is appreciated!! Please help my itchy baby!!! This is my first bully, none of her siblings have this issue from what I have heard!!
    Thank you
    Brandi and Tink

    P.S. how do I post pics on this thread???

    Welcome!

    It sounds like She is definitely having a reaction to either an ingredient in the food or environment. My guy is allergic to all things green—- he gets a Cytopoint shot once a month and Benedryl as needed on really bad days.

    Thank you for the reply!! Do you get that shot at the vet? Or do it yourself? Benadryl doesn't seem to be helping at all!! I took some pics, but I cant figure out how to post them on here! Lol!

    Pictures... in the comments box there is a menu bar— little square near right end will say ‘insert image’. Select and then attach photos.

    Cytopoint is a vet Tech appointment ... try Claritin ( regular) 1 pill a day. Also with a clean wet cloth.. wipe belly and paws when coming in from outside

    My Frenchie gets Cytopoint Injections as well but I get them from the vet and do them myself at home.

    Hmm... that might be mange, have the vet do a scrape to rule it out.

    Also, i do not know much on the foods you mention so check them on ingredients if meal or by products ate lusted think about a higher quality food and add a probiotic to help the immune system

    You have the same ingredient in both kibbles....sweet potatoes. Try something without Sweet potatoes. See what happens.
    I’m an Acana believer as it’s higher end with tripe n all real food. But that’s me.

    I currently feed raw, but here are done high quality kibbles many have great results with

    Zingature
    Fromm
    Acana
    Orijen
    Earthborn Holistic

    Porbiotics... refrigerated sauerkraut, raw goats milk or Herbsmith Microflora

    Thank you, will check into acana, I hope it's just the sweet potatoe that would be an easy fix!
