I have a almost 2 year old male chiuahua sorry spelling is off who has developed an area of red spots along his lower belly and legs and noone knows what it is...He does not itch it or rub it I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this and if they know what to do..I'm worried and he is like one of my children you know..please any info would help thak you
I have a chihuahua, too and he's never had anything like that. Sometimes his belly gets red when he rough houses to much with my other puppy but it goes away after he calms down. I'd take your chi to the vet.
thankyou but unfortunately he has been so busy with strays since the hurricanes hit he can't see him until November 11th but I will be taking him then I had hoped someone else has been through this too ..I will keep my eye out though
Well, since it doesnt itch or hurt him hopefully it is nothing serious. It could be an allergy to something, have you switched foods recently? Since it is not bothering him, it sounds like he'll be okay to wait until Nov. 11. Scout1, a member on this board, is a vet tech, maybe she will be able to help you when she reads this.
Oh that sure would ease my mind alot,,,peanut is remarkable he is so smart and can do any trick taught lol and he has the prettiest colors, i'd been lost without him lol he's always wherever I am, but I have him on a strict diet with the same foods as before but I will keep him in check though, haha right now he is buried under my blanket sleeping and hogging my pillows lol
lol, my chi, Ace, loves to sleep under the blankets with me, too! Whenever I wake up I am always on my side and hes laying next to me with his head on my arm like it's his pillow. Do you have any pictures of your chi? Here is Ace: http://www.dogster.com/?41494
Thanks! I do love him a lot =0) Your chi Peanut is very cute!!! How much does he weigh? Ace weighs 8lbs right now, which is pretty big for a chihuahua, but the doctor said he is just bigger and he is not overweight. So Im glad about that! I have stopped giving him table food all together pretty much though, so maybe his weight will taper off =0)
Sorry you have to wait so long to get into the vet. Since his diet hasn't changed, maybe there's something new he could have gotten into. Like if you had hurricane damage did you use a cleaner that he could have laid on or something like that? I can't really think of anything else. Here's mine: Have a good day!

ty so much no i haven't had him fixed but I am looking for a female for him he was weighing in at 18 pounds now thanks to lamb and rice he is down 8 pounds, I thought about the cleaner and he did get into my neighbors ceiling when it collapsed , they threw it outside where he goes to the bathroom I will mention that to the vet thankyou for reminding me. lol peanut knows he is the boss here with everyone and has his own wardrobe too much huh?
No I haven't had tests done yet, I will be doing that when he sees his vet, I basically want to find a mate for him, I love these dogs and have no problem with one or a hundred lol but it will all be up to his vet..if there is any probs but he is in excellent health otherwise but for the red marks he is absolutley the most loving and caring dog I have ever had and I would love for him to have a mate but we'll see on the 11th what the vet says and all
I hope it is just a little rash! What kinds of tests do you plan him having? Why are you "breeding," anyway? Sorry for all the questions! ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
I see howlonely he looks and sometimes it's as if he feels sad and I hate to see him look like that and it breaks my heart I will be getting him in asap though to his vet he is doing well otherwise lol trying to get me to give him another treat but he knows i'm stricter now ..he is a beauty and I hope others can find a friend like he is to me
thank you me too he is otherwise top of the world and he just adores his "older brother Adam " lol and thinks he can go onto the bus in the mornings with him and did it once lol had a hard time getting him off but I'm hoping with the more love I give he'll be better, he is now hogging my slippers lol what a character but I'm heading off soon I have to be up at 5 to take him for his am walk before kids go to school
