Daisy still has that annoying rash. On a scale of 1-5, I think it bothers her about a 3. While Benadryl (actually, it’s generic equivalent) seems to help the itching, it’s time to try and figure out what’s causing the rash. Last night I gave her a bath. From the research I’ve done, the most common cause of canine skin rash is a food allergy. Leave it to my dog to be allergic to organic dog food. Starting this afternoon, she will be fed homemade food. I also may consider switching to a recommended canned food. Apparently, there is not enough moisture in dry food for a dog with skin issues.
