Spots in groin and armpit

Postby cjm » Sat Jan 16, 2016 10:50 pm

Noticed these dark spots in the dog's groin and armpit - also a few on the inside of his elbow and a couple on his penis. They are almost all on the inside of joints/where skin rubs. They might be slightly raised but they don't definitely aren't scabs or anything that be rubbed off. I don't think they've changed in the week since we noticed them but they haven't always been there.

Sooo, trip to the vet? Or just watch them? Or no big deal?

Flea bites????

Does the dog's bedding have cedar chips as filling?

He sleeps inside, nothing new around I can think of. I don't think there is any flea poop but I don't know what bites look like.

They are comedomes. The canine equivalent of blackheads. Certain shampoos will help clear it up but it's mostly cosmetic.

Interesting, thanks. I'll keep an eye on it and maybe give him a bath for once.
