Red's been licking himself a lot lately, but I only just noticed what appears to be a moist rash in his right ventral inguinal area, and just cranial to his prepuce on his midline.
Below are some pics - I tried to use spoiler tags to spare people who didn't want to see pics of his private area, but it appears that this forum doesn't support spoiler tags, so scroll down if you want to see pics...
I have no idea how he could've gotten this. My first thought was his fleece coat might be rubbing him there and causing irritation, but he hasn't been wearing it lately, and the coat doesn't touch that area. Plus, I would think it would be on both sides if it was.
Other than that, I have no idea. He's always licked that area a lot - we are always telling him to stop licking and biting his peter (LOL), but I've never seen a rash on him before.
I'm not expecting a diagnosis over the internet but any ideas on what may have caused this? Has anyone else experienced this on their dobe?
I really hope it's not food allergies... ugh that would be a pain in the ass!
Any help or comments are appreciated.
