Poor boo! Mitzi poodle does get irritated from tummy shaving sometimes 
but not others. It seems to depend on time of year, summer being the 
worst. That's also when she needs the greater cooling from a shaved 
tummy. /smile/

I tend to use Aloe Vera gel on her tummy and other close areas after a 
grooming, since it cools and moisturizes. If her skin still seems dry 
after a day or two, I will use something like Shea Butter (expensive!) 
or olive oil (cheap!) to condition the skin.

If the rash is more than razor burn or something, it might need 
something medicated. I'm not too familiar with those sorts of things. 
Though I have heard of using original brown Listerine as an antiseptic 
that tastes too nasty for the dog to lick. I've never tried it myself, 
though, having no need.

However, it seems like they did shave there and Bogart has been bothering several spots all weekend. A sighted co-worker just looked at him and said that there are a couple of red marks which is where he keeps licking.
