Heat Rash

by Stacy
(Texas)

We rescued a great Pyrenees on our own... he's had a lot of medical problems, and we've just got his weight up, but I think he's developing a heat rash. What is the best thing to do? We live in texas, and want to re-home him once he's healthy enough...

Hot spots
by: Donna

It could be hot spots.

Sometimes this is attributed to diet. Many vets don't condone it because they aren't educated on it. The species-appropriate diet for dogs is raw. You'll find that raw will help this if not make it dissipate.

Here is some information on it:

Raw
by: Stacy

I have all of my pets on a mixure of boiled beef,pumpkin,rice and salmon oil...

Should his be completely raw? I finally got some weight on him, he won't eat a lot of things... and was hospitalized a month ago because of his weight and condition (came to us with severe heart worms, underweight, and hook worms) and he's had hot spots before, and it doesn't match them. I've moved him to the coldest part of our house too see if that will remedy it before a vet visit next week

Yes, completely raw.

Know that grains are allergens.
