    Default Spots are getting worse !!!

    Hi guys. A posted last week to say that coco had some spots that were like boils and scabby we took her to the vets who said they were insect bites but not flees. He give us a shampoo that we have to use once a week and some steroid cream we have been using that every other day. Well this morning there are a lot more spots and you can see them on her skin now. Any advise guys xxxx -imageuploadedbytapatalk1344171870-672923-jpg-imageuploadedbytapatalk1344171882-191290-jpg-imageuploadedbytapatalk1344171894-124617-jpg-imageuploadedbytapatalk1344171906-958315-jpg-imageuploadedbytapatalk1344171922-811511-jpg-imageuploadedbytapatalk1344171932-702861-jpg. Thanks guys. Jemma and coco xxx

    What do you feed her? Is she getting any new treats or it could be enviromental, anyway in most cases it's a reaction on something. Trying to care for the symptoms is hardly ever a long time answer. You need to find out the source.

    Wow this is a tough one, they certainly do look like bites but they could also be an allergic reaction to something. Anything new going on? Rainy season? Mosquitos? New bedding? New toys? New treats? New places visited? New rug? New shampoo? New laundry soap? New bag of James Wellbeloved? Did you try a different kind? Is it itchy?

    i would stop the pedigree and find another way to get her to eat it. see if the bumps go away. maybe some yogurt or canned food just a touch. does the dog food your feeding have a canned food. ive had it take 2 months for sarah to react to a kibble so maybe.

    Maybe switch to bland diet and see if it clears up....if not doing it already give Beneryl 1 mg per pound

    Good advice above. It does look like bug bites....and unwanted visitors in the house lately like spider's etc? Could be environmental or food too. Just so hard to tell. I would consider the questions that @desertskybulldogs asked. Take her off of the pedigree. If she needs enticement to eat that food, I would either put yogurt or something in it or find a good food to change her too. There are plenty on the market that won't break the bank.

    Ruby get bumps on her and I use desitin....Sounds simple but it is worth a try and if it doesn't go away try all the switching foods....She gets them often but desitin clears it up and I have no idea what it was except some dermititis. Good luck!
