I rescued a Dalmation mix puppy and about a week after bringing her home, shes developed what looks like tiny red pimples on her stomach and armpits. I took her to the vet and the vet didn’t seem worried. She said to spray her with antifungal and antibacterial spray. However, it itchiness stops for about an hour and then shes right back at it again. Does anyone elses dog have this problem?

If the rash is local and seems to be caused by an outside irritant, use a shampoo containing aloe and some type of natural antiseptic like tea tree oil. Second apply a salve containing some type of sulfur compound.

Changing the dogs diet may provide temporary relief however the dogs typically develop an allergy to another ingredient. Our research indicates adding a probiotic/enzyme complex combined with compounds that ferment… Read more »
