Strange red spots on my pit's underside???

Postby Ringo » Wed Jul 06, 2011 6:10 pm

i just noticed today that my 7month old male pit has developed some small red spots on his genital area,they almost look like pimples or a rash of some kind,could it be a heat rash? he was in his kennel today for roughly 4 hours but i did have a fan blowing on him,it has been very warm the last two days. there is approxamatly 14 separete spots and they look sore but dont seem to be bothering him.Looks like a trip to the vet in the morning but any helpful thoughts would be great.
My other pit who is 2 years old has no symptoms yet!
Thanks

My puppy got this when she was about 4/5 months old. Well it sounds similar. She developed a rash that looked like pimples all over her chest area and underneath it. I took her to the vet just gave her anti inflams and anti biotics and it cleared up quickly, she hasn't had anything like it since. Sorry can't remember exactly what she said it was but I think she said maybe a yeast infection?? or something similar.

same thing happened to my dog, my vet gave me some antibiotics and it was gone in a few days. I cant remember exactly what he told me, but he was asking if my dog runs through any kinds of weeds/high grass areas and I told him yeah he said it could be like an allergic reaction to something in that area.

I had that issue with my pit when he was a puppy - as others said grass/weeds and bug bites are what were the likely cause. I didn't treat him with anything because they didn't look sore or appear to be bothering him at all and went away on their own. Now that he is over a year we haven't had any issues with it. Once in a while he gets some red spots depending on the grass.
