Heat Rash in Dogs: Home Treatment (+ other possible causes)
Is your dog’s skin getting red and sticky in the sun? Heat rash is one possibility, but not the only one. If your dog is getting hot, and they have developed a heat rash, try cooling the skin with a cool wet cloth. This should reduce the heat, reduce any inflammation, and provide relief for any irritation or itchiness your dog might be experiencing. If they are irritated by their heat rash then you want to stop them licking or nibbling excessively. This will only damage the skin and make the likelihood of an infection developing much higher.
Any rash that persists for more than a day or two, is getting worse or is causing irritation should be checked by your vet. There may be other treatments that are needed to prevent your dog’s skin becoming an inflamed, sticky, infected mess! There may even be something more serious going on.
