Rash

Basenji and rashes

Cali just started to get these little red lumps all over her belly….taken her to the vet tomorrow.

Poor Cali, I hope everything is okay. Keep us posted on what the vet says.

Basenjis seem to have sensitive skin. One of ours often had rashes as you're describing when he was young. Twice we had to take him to the vet. A couple shots and prescription Benadryl cleared them up. The vet said we could use children's Benadryl as soon as we saw any signs. It also helped with a few wasp stings. You may want to ask your vet about doing the same. If so they can recommend a dosage. Good luck.

I recently noticed redness around one of my B's neck & I thought it was the chain choke that might be irritating it so I stopped using for a couple of days. Then he developed 3 red bumps (they look like human zits). Not sure what this is?? Any thoughts?

Maybe I should switch to nylon choke ?

Cali had the same thing…so I took her to the Vet on Sat.......they said it was common for puppies.

so they gave me Clavamox for the lumps...twice a day
also Hydroxyzine for the itching 1 tablet 8-12 hours as needed...

and this shampoo Chlorhexiderm Shampoo....2-3 days aweek

thats all the info I have..and will let you all know on how things go with that......cause i was going to try Benadryl.
