    Hey all I recently adopted my parents Dogo because her and the pit bull were not getting along. Non the less I've had her for about 3 months and she's great. How ever her skin is concerning me, its very pink and looks irritated. I was told this was common in the Dogo but I was wondering if anyone had found something that really helps? Currently she is on a medicated shampoo and I've incorporated coconut oil, turmeric (anti-inflammatory), and honey into her diet. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance ☺

    Hey Steven,

    Pink skin is common with Dogo's and it's due to irritation or allergies. Was she irritated before she moved over to your place? Did you change the food? Try and figure out what's changed and remove that from her diet / environment for 3-5 weeks. If still pink, remove the next suspect for 3-5 weeks, and so on, until you remove something that results in the pinkness going away after 3-5 weeks. Vets also have allergy tests, shots to reduce scratching (and irritation), and medication - I would definitely recommend the tests.
