Shortly after bringing my dog home from a 10-day stay at with trainer/boarding kennel last Wednesday, I noticed he had many bumps spread along the insides of his back legs and especially in the sparsely-haired portion of his lower belly/groin.
Initially I assumed they were fly and mosquito bites. He got eaten alive by the bugs up at our cabin a few days before we brought him to the trainer, and the time he was at the kennel was quite buggy around here, too. Plus, he's always been picked on by insects in that area because he's not very hairy or protected there.
But now it's been over a week since we picked him up and cooler weather has finally eliminated most of our biting insects. Not only are many of the initial "bites" still there, but more have cropped up. They've also taken on the appearance of pimples.
The dog licks them a bit, but nothing too out of the ordinary.
As far as I can tell, this rash (or whatever it is) is still only on that area of his body--nowehere else.
I'm guessing a vet call will be in order, but in the meantime I'd really appreciate it if someonce could tell me what this might be and what I'll likely have to do about it.
Thanks.....sorry to always post so many questions!
