    Default Rash on vacation

    Hi everyone...haven't checked in lately but things have been good....

    I'm in Vermont on vacation and have Schultz with me (Sophie too) and I just noticed these spots on Schultz's belly, Sophie doesn't have any here's a pic...has anyone seen this because it is new to me...


    I called my vet in Ohio and left a message...we are here for a few more days...so I'm going to worry (even though Schultz doesn't seem to know he's got these spots) thanks in advance for any ideas

    My bullie had the same problem recently. He was put on antibiotics for another problem and then a cream was added for the spots, Mupirocin Ointment. It cleared up but I am not sure which medication solved the problem. I am really hoping others who have had this problem will post. The spots never bothered him - only me.

    After interrogating a bunch of Vermont natives, I'm pretty certain these spots are black fly bites (just a nuisance unless there are many, many more)...I looked up images for black fly bites and those pics look exactly like the ones I posted...these bites appear fast and disappear quick and the dog usually isn't even bothered (also google info) but thanks for responding!

    It does look like he got bit by something. As long as he is acting himself and eating and drinking fine, I would just keep an eye on it.
