    DefaultRush has sores on her tummy

    and in her ears. The vet checked her over and put her on an antibiotic, she has a skin infection. If they don't go away, then we have to start looking at other causes ie allergies.
    The vet also suggested that I get both girls on flea control as with the warm winter, he is seeing a lot of flea issues already.
    Here's the thing. I feed my girls ProPlan Sensitive Skin and Stomach. They love it and I have had no problems with it until about 2 weeks ago. In the morning, sometimes Rush will not eat
    her food. If you hand feed her or hold her bowl up to her, she'll eat it. Otherwise she won't touch it. This has happened maybe 4 times in the past 2 wks. I'm wondering if
    maybe the formula has changed in the food. She eats it at supper but she gets green beans and a couple of tablespoons of wet mixed in. I have emailed Purina to find out if
    there has been any changes. We may switch them over to PP lamb & rice. I'm at a loss. Any feelings on this???

    Early spring? Got into something outside?
    Hope you figure it out soon.
    Poor Rush.

    Whether or not rush eats the food heartily or not, has little to do with if it's causing allergy symptoms. Does the vet suspect fleas? You might want to see what protein is in the food and where corn is listed in the ingredient list.

    At this point I think I'd do a blood panel. She's how old now? Well past the typical new allergy age.

    If one of mine don't eat I try another food. If they eat that then maybe the bag has had a small hole and not as fresh, or something they don't like in that batch.

    Could the rash be new grass, or pollen.? Could she have had a slight allergy before and this year worse so you are picking it up?

    Good thoughts coming.

    Aw! Poor Rush! I hope it gets better soon! Simon has allergies too. I think he has an ear infection too. We give Simon Cleritan Clear.
