Solid Bumps and pimple like bumps on underbelly

Hello All... I am new to this forum however I am looking for some insight on this one. My dobby is five nd a half months old and has broken out in bumps. At first I thought it was allergies and broke out the Benadryl it turns out that it isn't really presenting as allergies. I have spoke with our vet and do have an appointment on Friday at this point I am just trying to build up some information and see what fellow people owned by Doberman's have experineced. He is itchy but not extremely. His pads are not read and there is no swelling anywhere as well his ears are not warm and he is not running a fever. He is currently eating Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy. He is not on any heart worm/flea medication as we are buried in the snow right now in Canada. (yuck) Like I said HE WILL be going to the vet I am not willing to leave it and see what happens. If anyone can give any information that would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks for stopping in and reading my plea for assistance.

Welcome to DT.

Could you post a pic?

If you use the search engine here there are a ton of threads on skin problems. A lot deal with allergies.

It may be puppy staph. Gemma had what sounds similar to those bumps on her ears and shoulders around 6 months old. After numerous tests (thyroid, fungal, scrape) all which came back negative, my vet decide to do a round of antibiotics. After 5 days everything started looking better and we've decided to go for a full 6 weeks of antibiotics to clear her. If this didn't work allergy testing and the dermatologist were next on the list. Also a photo of the bump might help others help you. Good luck.

You're lucky the vet put her on antibiotics for that amount of time. Many vets only prescribe it for a couple of weeks and that's not long enough to handle it. The minute they stop the rx the staph comes back.

Yeah, sounds like puppy staph which is very common in Doberman puppies due to their immature immune system.

And VZ is right as most vets only prescribe a 10-14 day round of antibiotics and the staph comes right back. If you do a lengthy round of antibiotics 3 or more times, you can suspect allergies as repeated staph outbreaks are one sign of allergies

Yes! That's exactly what my vet said. That for good reason a lot of vets under use antibiotics, but at the same time you have to be able to get rid of it. So some times more is the right choice.

Yep, I agree with other posters. Sounds like puppy pyoderma, which you can Google. Needs a good long course of antibiotics (Jack's vet prescribed Cephalexin). We also bathed him regularly using Pyoben shampoo, cut out all supplements, and put him on a limited-ingredient food for several months. (In his case, we chose Natural Balance duck and potato.)

Not sure which of these measures actually did the trick, and it may have been the combo of all three. But by the time we eased off, all was fine.

Thank you everyone for all your assistance. We got in to see the vet today and he is antibiotics for 14 days twice a day, a medicated shampoo once every three days times three and a coat supplement as his skin is really dry. Hopefully this will work it's corse. It seems like the food Blue Buffalo large breed puppy is the trigger as well so we are going to switch back to our old food and follow threw with this course of treatment and see what the outcome is. Hopefully it will solve the issue. The only thing that is really concerning me is that he is going to be six months on January 11 and weighed in at 70 lbs and is NOT at all over weight I am starting to worry as I am thinking a have a horse concealed in doberman skin.... :-( I am going to see if there is another thread with a similar comment with his weight and age, I am now worried that he will have joint problems if he is going to be to big :-(

Lightbulb Blue Buffalo

Wow great post/timing as my new puppy has the same bumps that come and go, big and small on his belly. I googled it and came up with the same thing (staph). He has an appt tomorrow so we'll see but I wonder if it's a coincidence that mine is on 'Blue Buffalo large puppy breed' too..? We're having problems w/ him eating anyway so I guess I'll be checking out the 'puppy food' thread as well!
