    I have a white Pit, not albina, but real albino pink skin. She's always has rashes, hives, and skin irritaions.

    We just found out she's allergic to beef, so she breaks out with hives. She's also allergic to grass and sensitive to heat. All you can do is check you dog for food allergies and such.

    For your Pit's rash try using Tea Tree oil and Aloe on the irritated areas. Also you can wipe the areas with Red Apple Cider Vinegar.
    Also, check for the obvious, skin parasites. Believe me, that's a whole lot easier to deal with than allergies.

    I may be wrong, but it seems that the fair skinned (coated) dogs, like white, blue, red, etc seem to be more prone to skin problems, ranging from allergy related rashes to sunburns. Maybe a relationship between recessive genes and the immune system???

    Yeah, I blame Grace's allergy problems on poor breeding. I think she may have other problems in the future, also.

    I've noticed that, when it comes to poor breeding the skin/coat and immunity seem to go first. Then you get into even bigger problems.

    Sorry for the double post. The posts about poor breeding got me to thinking - maybe I hear of more skin problems with white/red/blue pits because they are the fad, and therefore are overbred/more of them out there poorly bred? I dunno - just seem to hear of a lot more of these problems with those color dogs.

    I have rednoses for years. I've been breeding for years. I personally have not had a single problem with allergies or skin problems, and neither have my puppies, as far as I am aware of. Actually, I haven't heard many other rednoses to have skin problems or allergies unless they are white or predominately white. Mooney is the only one I had, who was a rednose pied, who had a minor rash on his stomach once. Now if we are talking about blues, I will agree that aLOT of them are very prone to allergies/skin problems.

    Yes BLUES are the worse, always having skin problems and mange too, amonst other problems. The red noses I've seen some, but we're talking about poorly bred ones if you look into the fad breeders that just keep breeding any 2 red nose dogs together I've seen some skin problems, food allergies and mange.
