What can cause my Springer Spaniel to get a rash all over and have swollen ear flaps?


Posted by cleo17

He has had diarrhea for a couple of days, but today his ear flaps are swollen and there is a rash all over his belly and inside of his legs (where I can see skin).  I have given him 25 mg of benadryl.

Other than those symptoms mentioned above, he is behaving normally.  Appetite is still there and he is peppy, not acting sick at all!

It sounds like your dog has been exhibiting some type of a systemic (all over) allergic reaction to something he either ate or breathed in, or came into contact with in his environment.  If this continues for longer than a day, he really should be examined by your veterinarian.
