Oh I hope that's all it is. I'm so paranoid about her health as she was a rescue (yes the real kind where she was actually starved) and as far as we know in 18 years she has never had a bath. So alot of things have been coming to the surface now that she gets groomed everyday and her winter coat is coming off.
And this redness is a recent change as it wasn't red just two days ago. Also last fall/winter she has some skin issues on her legs, not sure what but they had to be washed in iodine quite often so I want to make sure nothing is coming back. Ah I definitely worry to much.
