I noticed this rash on Charlie just a few minutes ago.  He hasn't ate anything out of the ordinary.  Nor has he been anywhere different in the past 5 days so I don't think it's something that could be related to our yard.  We gave him some benedryl, but that's it.

P.S.  That's his battle scar from when they opened him up last fall!

Jess noticed that he had a bit of puss it looked like on the tip.  Could a urinary infection cause a rash?  He hasn't been peeing more often, I always thought that was a sign of a UTI.

I think it is just because of the pee that touches their skin, it kind of burns them like a diaper rash I suppose.  Felix used to get rashes like that too, but more on the inside of his thigh where he laid down on it.
The greenish discharge is also normal. I just started using baby wipes to try and clean him up a little bit, but he hasn't had a rash in a several months anyway.
With Felix I learned how messy little boys are! He also used to pee on his front paws alot.. haha.
Sharon will correct me if it could be something else ;)
