Why does my dog keep getting rashes under it's legs?
There are a number of causes for getting rashes under dogs legs.
They could have bacterial infections or most likely it could be an allergic type reaction.
Like humans, dogs can have allergies to environmental conditions like house mites, some of the pollens in the environment, or they can also react to some of the food they eat. Some of the proteins in foods can cause a food allergy.
What we need to do is rule out a food allergy, we can do this with some of the Royal Canin Veterinary diets. They're hypoallergenic or they're anallergenic, but if it's an eczema type of problem, then we can use something like the Hill's Prescription Diet Derm Defence to try and help.
The other thing that needs to be ruled out is fleas. Fleas are very common in households throughout New Zealand and will cause itchiness as well.
So, if you've treated your pet and the environment for fleas and the itch persists, then I recommend you visit your bet to get your pet checked out and just make sure that there's not something there that the vet can't fix.
