Hi, been awhile since I've posted here but my 2 year old English Springer Spaniel, Tira, has had a tummy rash and small sores off and on the the last two weeks. There are a couple of things that happened around that time: the floor was cleaned with Orange Glo Hardwood Cleaner
, I dumped a bag of cheap fill soil to fill a low spot in my lawn, and I changed her food from Royal Canine
. I mixed her food in a 1:4 ratio (new to old) to slowly adjust her to the new food. Along this time I watered my lawn extensively in order to make it green.
Once I saw her tummy get a rash I went back to her original food. The rash seemed to clear somewhat but it comes and goes where it's not so bad in the morning then worse at lunch and finally bad after work. This led me to think it's something outside or possibly the floor. The MSDS on Orange Glo wasn't too alarming but I've noticed a weed has grown like, uh, a weed, ever since I watered. Here's a scan of it http://www.craigminah.com/suspectplant.jpg
and here's the MSDS for Orange Glo: http://www.craigminah.com/orangeglomsds.pdf
I have a few ideas what it could be but is there anything I should do other than keep an eye on her? Are there tests that could find out what is causing it? Could she be allergic to grass or that plant (she eats it when its spikey seeds stick in her hair)? What is that plant?
Sorry for the long post with a bunch of questions but I'm worried for her.
