Gracie - the Dachshund we now have - is having an allergic reaction to something. I'm assuming it is seasonal allergies...I remember her owner saying something to that regard, and the vet had given him some lotion (or spray) to put on her. It is only on her belly (where she is touching the grass). She's broken out into bumps (looks like hives) and she keeps licking at them (and making it irritated). We're going to give her benedryl to see if that helps, and I'm taking them in for baths on Saturday and I'll give her a medicated bath, but is there a specific med I should ask the vet for? Do you think the Cortisoothe lotion stuff would work? Anybody else with a long little doggy whose belly drags on the grass get irritation from it?
