Re: Recurring Rash Issue - Pup

you may want to rule out sensitivity to plastics/rubbers. My dog had issues with rashes when he was young and I tried everything except the dermatologist and allergy testing. It'd go away with steroids and antibiotics but it would come back once he was off them. I was lamenting this issue with a friend and she mentioned to me perhaps it's a reaction to plastic or rubber. At the time many of his toys were plastic (he especially loved empty water bottles) or rubber and his food and water bowls were plastic. I took away everything plastic or rubber based...his food and water got served up in a metal bowl, all his toys became rope, fabric and canvas based toys. I haven't had an issue like that with him since. Might be worth checking out with your dog anyway.....
