Do dogs get poison ivy?
I have a Sato rescue, likely a Chihuahua/Terier mix. She has a very short coat and tender soft skin.
We do a lot of long off-leash walks and poison ivy is rampant here in New England in the summer; it's difficult to keep her completely away fom the plant. She develops a rash on her belly that pretty much lasts all summer long. It looks like poison ivy (red, pimply, scaly). She NEVER scratches at it or appears to feel any discomfort.
I plan to bring it up at an upcoming vet visit (I'm curious if it's a staph infection), but was wondering if anyone had ever seen poison ivy in dogs.
