    DefaultRed under arms

    I noticed last night that McKenzie has blotchy read areas under her arms/ arm pit area. and was wondering if anyone new what this may be or what to do for her. It doesnt seem to bother her when I touch or feel the area and I dont see the spots anywhere else. I was thinking it could be from her leash getting tangled but I'm usually pretty quick to untangle her. Please share. Thanks

    Sounds like canine atophy. Is she scratching at her ears, underside of her body? Face rubbing? sneezing? paw licking?

    No she really hasnt been doing any of those. I checked under her arms again last night and they seem to be less red.

    That's good. I'm glad they look better. She could be a little allergic to grass,and weeds. Just keep an eye on her. If she starts scratching alot, and doing the other things I mentioned, it may be time for a trip to the vet, but I wouldn't worry if she's just has a little redness under her arms.

    Does your dog go swimming or get wet? Scout gets those red bumps under his arms if he's been in the pool a lot and doesn't get dried off good enough.

    Our 4 month old had red under her front legs and it was hot to the touch; was a bacteria infection and a round of antibiotics cleared it up...
