Im new to this site, so Im hoping someone can help me!
My baby Jinx (1year) has been having a reoccurring rash in his armpits and groin for the past 6 months!
Originally the vet thought it was his food, so he has been strictly on Hills Science Diet Sensitive Skin for the past 3 months, and is not better at all!
I moved house 3 months ago, and the rash has almost been constant since then.
Every time i take him to the vet, he gives him a cortisone injection (he has had 4 now) I works for about 2 weeks, then the rash comes back!
This time the rash has spread to his neck and genitals, and is weeping really bad!
I have pinpointed the rash starts when I go away for a few days! Although I have someone come and feed and play with him twice a day... it seems to start around this time!
Now the vet is thinking it is a 'stress rash' from being without me... and he wants to put him on some form of anti-depressant or anti-anxiety medication!
Has anyone had any experience with rashes caused by stress???
