Absolutely. I would check with the vet first.

Most dogs don't get poison ivy in that location because of the hair but very possible if they are under it in a brush where it is brushing through the hair and touching the skin. Something worth checking out as it does cause blisters. I hope what ever it is your girl gets better soon, that looks painful.

I would keep him out of that water until the rash has healed. AFter that he should be thoroughly rinsed when he comes out.

Last summer Rafi got a horrible rash in his groin from something in the lake. It spread and spread. I tried everything but it wouldn't completely go away. The vet finally sold me Chlorhexidine pads and I treated him for two days and the rash was gone!
Thank you. It looks like a great topical. I'll give it a shot.

I'm at a loss on a cause. Any poison ivy or poison oak in your area. My brother got it bad with blisters once.
That's a great idea! I noticed the sun was irritating it when we went out.

May be a reaction to the Sentinal

You need to see a veterinary dermatologist if it does not clear up. Looks like some kind of reaction to me
