My got a rash all of a sudden on her belly
I saved a puppy that was dropped off in the woods I took her to the vet and she has hook worms and round worms and a few small dry bald spots They gave her meds for the worms and Lime sulf dip for skin if it didn't get better.
It's been a week and no more worms in her stool and skin looking better so i haven't started the dip But today I came home from work and she had pooed all in her kennel it was all over her and now she has a red rash on her belly. Could this be from her having her own stool on her or should i start the dip in case its mange or something
Like i said she started to look much better and then all of a sudden this rash appeared?
That rash looks very painful for her, and I'm afraid I'm not a veterinarian so it's impossible for me to say what's caused it for sure.
BUT - if it only appeared after she'd been lying in her own feces then it's most likely connected to that. If she had puppy diarrhea, then it could have been very acidic and 'burned' her skin. Some diaper rash cream may help soothe it.
I wouldn't personally recommend using the dip while her skin is so sore and irritated, it will probably hurt her and may make it worse. If this rash doesn't clear up within a day or so I'd strongly recommend having your vet take a look so that you get an accurate diagnosis and if she needs treatment you can get it taken care of.
Sorry I couldn't help more, hope she's doing much better soon though. Good luck
