My JAYDA!!! Her back is flaring in bumps!
I don't know what to do or know what it is. I mean, I know what to do , take her to the vet, but over this past weekend its gotten real bad. I just looked at her a few minutes ago and the sun was hitting her at a certain angle and WOW i didn't even know she had bumps on her thighs too now.
About 1 month and a half close to two months ago she got her rabies shot and about a week later she had like a bad irritation in the area she received her shot. I talked to my sister who's a vet tech and she told me to take her back to the vet and its probably a reaction. I took her, he gave her a shot and within a week in a half it got better and went away. But that's when I got Bronson, who had a very mild case of staph. I ask the vet who cropped his ears about treating it just in case it flares up again? He said no, not now let his immune system kick in.
I did a little more research about staph infection and found that it IS contagious. I didn't assume it was because my main source was this website and i didn't recall anyone saying it was contagious. So the past two weeks Jayda has little bump on her coat. I can barely feel them on her skin. But her skin does feel dry. It was just in a small area near the back of her back. So I ordered Micro Tek shampoo and gave them both a bath, which is suppose to be good for a variety of things, on Friday. Today, Its bad.
Im going to set her up an appointment but does any know what this could be? She's a 7 year old black and rust doberman with no past skin or coat issues? Although I do know as dogs age, just like puppies, their immune system isn't as strong either.
