Hello

I have noticed over the past few days that Chase has gotten these red type scab bumps on his chest. He is now 6 1/2 months.

Their seems to be about 7-8 of them just on his chest no where else, does anybody have any suggestions??

Im a bit of a worry wart :) that's all

thanks Ryan

His chest could also be bumpy/dry from laying on it... I know Storm used to have that problem, that hair is thinner there and laying on the carpet would dry her out and cause bumpies...
Chi has (occasionally) red zit like bumps that pop up on her neck, legs and back - the vet tech told me that stridex pads work really well in keeping them clean and drying them out...

thanks

both your suggestions have came up. He has been in long grass the last few days and it has also been dry. Could I possible just put ointment on the spots??

thanks again

Sure but be sure and call your Vet first and check. I have used Neosproen on my dogs with the Vet's ok! and it has helped.. Plus may anti itch creams. good luck

Is he itching at them? My dog has allergies and gets staph/bacterial infections on his stomach, inner thighs, and armpits and they start out looking like bites. Small little scabby bumps that turn into raw nasty rashes as he itches and bites at them more. We're currently trying to get him stable so he'll stop getting infections. Allergies suck to deal with! :\

The scabs look like they have dried over a bit , so I am going to keep an eye on them. I put some anti-bacterial cream on them and it seemed to work.

Thanks
