Rash on his belly

October 1st, 2007, 08:14 AM
Hello everyone,
My 4 years old Schanuzer/Lhasa apso mix has a red bumpy rash all over his belly. I have noticed that he had some bug bites from our trip to a cottage about 2 weeks ago. He was itching and scratching around his armpit area and now I see this red bumpy rash on his belly & inside back legs area.
He is currently on flea/heat worm prevention do I am not too worried about fleas on him. Also we've changed his food about 2 weeks ago, although he used to have this food before.

I don't know if we should wait out and see or take him in to our vet asap.

please help.

It could be flea bites. Some flea meds don't prevent bites but actually require the flea to have a blood meal before they work. They work to prevent the flea from reproducing and getting to the point of an infestation. So you still see fleas and get bites. Just not as many. Way, way fewer in fact.
