Patches has contact allergies
Originally we though it was a food allergy, but I have had her on probably every kind of dog food out there (prescription and store bought) and nothing is helping her.
She's not really suffering at all, it's just that she's a mostly white dog, and her skin on her tummy by her rear legs goes from pinkish to bright red, then back to normal, etc., and really bothers me to see. It flares up and goes away...no set time frame. This has been going on for maybe 1 1/2 years now. I didn't get the allergy test done last week because Oreo's vet visits have taken my savings down too much for my liking. If Patches gets really bad I would have the test done.
I would like to try to eliminate things myself first, so if anone has any ideas of how to go about doing this I would so much appreciate it. It's not a seasonal thing as this rash does not change with the seasons.
