Dog Underarm rash
Arwen447 posted:
My 2 yr old male daschund has developed a red rash under his is arms. He does not scratch or lick the area and the rash doesn't not appear anywhere else. There has been no change to his diet besides a small decrease in the amount of food he is given since he is a few pounds over weight. I tried giving him a bath and cleaning the area but the rash has not gone away. Any ideas as to what this rash could be and how to treat it?

My parents had a dachshund many years ago & I remember being told that they tend to sweat in that area. If it's not that, it might be the shampoo you are using; if you haven't yet, try Johnson's baby shampoo-it's even gentle enough for dogs w/ sensitive skin. If that doesn't work, you might want to talk to your vet.
These dogs are prone to have weight problems; my mom didn't believe in buying dog food, she fed him scraps from that day's dinner. Plus one of my sisters would feed him at mealtimes.
Please let me know what you find out.
