      Evaluate your dogs' environment. If there has been any changes in where they walk, where they choose to lie down or any other changes, it's important to note those circumstances. Some dogs can develop allergies and you can eliminate their rashes if you can isolate what that allergy may be and then removing them from that environment.

      Give your dog omega-3 fatty acids. You can find these fatty acids in wet and hard dog food, however, for maximum dosages a teaspoon of the actual oil is recommended on a daily basis. You can find one form of the liquid in the "Additional Resources" link at the bottom of this page. Omega-3 fatty acids can help prevent against inflammation and allergens, which can help reduce rashes from occurring.
