Skin Problem

Hey, I have a 18 week old pitbull, he has llike little red marks all over him. They started out just on his back but have since spread to legs and face. Atfirst i thought it was a re-action to flea bites but i have been giving him the front line flea and tick gel, i have also been giving him flea and tick baths every 3 days to try to get rid of the spots. That didnt work. So now I was thinking a food allergy, I was feeding him Purina puppy food, i called my vet and they suggested IAMS. So I started giving him that tonight. I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem. I read something about giving them benedryl but can you give puppys human pills? any info would be helpful thank you

okay for food...see Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble
you wanna feed something in at least the 4-6 star range.
Iams is horrible.

second, is the spots accompined with missing hair?
to me it sounds like you should get your puppy into the vet for a skin scrape. your puppy *may* have demodex and if it is spreading you need to have him looked at. ONLY your vet can diagnose him and give him a proper treatment.

No missing hair, just red spots, some are like bumpy and some arent.

I wouldn't combine flea baths with the flea gel, it could give him a rash.

I'm having the same problem right now.. A food reaction caused my pup to have these little red bumps all over his belly n sum on his back.. He got it from innova evo red meat.. I switched him to ToTW salmon n the red bumps are going away.. Try switching foods for a week n see if anything happens

you would need to bring her to the vet and have them do a skin scrape..it could be mange it could be a bug bite or allergy or nothing without the scrape there is no way to really tell.
