We've all seen our share of black fly bites, flea reactions, mange, etc.

Are they tiny red bumps?
Do tehy have heads?
Are they like rounded mosquito bites?


Look at the first post on the first page.

Can someone please explain to me how changing Rambos food to a allergic formula will benefit him? His hives were HORRIBLE this morning...im pretty sure its either the flies or something on the cement outside. If changing his food will benefit him then I will do so.

Rambo still breaks out pretty bad...always in the morning after he moves from the garage to the back yard. I have noticed that there are flys constantly around/on him. Could it be flys? What about mosquitos?

uh-oh!!!!! His dog house is plastic too! Maybe I can build him a new dog house.

It makes sense though. He only breaks out on his sides and some on his neck. I hope its the plastic and not the food.....I dont really feel like food hunting again. :frown:

I made an appointment with the vet for Fri...

Have you changed your detergent (or scent of) or bleach recently? Are the towels new? It would seem something has changed that is directly related to where he is laying in the morning. I assume that the hives are on the side of his body that he tends to lay on?? Yes, he always lays on his right sid...

His kennel is half concrete half rocks...small blue rock. There could be millions of insects around.

I will try and switch detergents and put him in the garage to rule out the insects....

Thanks guys!

He always lays on his towels. I use bleach and Gain(joyfull expressions scent) to wash his towels. He also lays on his plastic picnic table and on the concrete.
