    It may just be a heat rash or a little grass rash :)

    Mine both got a rash on their tum where the bald patch is, as hair started to gradually grow in at the edges.

    Daisy had something which looked like this, the vet said it was basically a bit like puppy acne. Didn't give us anything for it, but we started giving her a tablespoon of cod liver oil in her food.
    It cleared up pretty quick but no idea if that was attributed to the cod liver oil or not... may be worth a try

    Has the grass been cut recently where she has been lying?
    If so it could be ants, they get irritated by the grass being cut and bite. My pair get this every time the grass is cut.

    This is likely something called a puppy pyoderma which is nothing to worry about. Puppies can sometimes get little bumps on the abdomen that look like a bacterial skin infection but there are no bacteria there. It usually goes away on its own within a few weeks.

    If it does seem to be itchy or if the spots are getting ulcerated then it could actually be a bacterial infection, but this is less likely.

    My last dog used to get a reaction to long grass and our vet said it was very common and to use diluted liquid salvon on it. Turned out he was allergic to salvon so we tried calomine which worked a treat.

    If you're really concerned why don't you pop him into the vets just to put your mind at rest?

    glad to hear it's nothing serious, Meg had a rash when she was a pup it was sort of raised red lumps under her belly, she ended up with an injection and steriods for a week until it went :)

    Hi there I'm new here but my 14 week old Pyrenean had developed a rash on her tummy two, it's dry and scabbed a little but she doesn't itch it. Somone said it might be some sort of urine infection as she's started licking round her privite parts alot this morning.
    Any ideas?

    Dr. Marie. is right.there is nothing to worry about it,but if you feel itchy then you must consult to Veterinary specialist.
