    Default Bumps bumps and more bumps

    Ok as I post this I am thinking about our vets comments about naming a wing after tubs and the fact that we are considered frequent visitors. Earlier in the week Tubs had a bump or two on his back. Animax always helped in the past. I put this on the bumps/sores, but is seems like he has more on his back. They are kind of scabby. Today he s laying on the floor on his side and I noticed he had a bunch of red bumps on his belly. I got really nervous about this and scooped him up and took him to my parent's house to give him a bath. I scrubbed him up good, dried him all up and treated him with advantage. I don't know if he was getting bit by something or if it might be something else. My dad thought it might be fleas, but I didn't see anything. I put animax on the bumps/sores that were really bad. Are there any suggestions for what this might be? Should I take him to the vet or should a wait to see if the bath and the animax helps? Any help for my baby boy would be greatly appeciated!

    Forgive me if this has already been covered in another post ..... what known allergies does he have? If the bumps are just on his stomach he could be lying on something that he is allergic to.

    He never had these bumps before and they started on his back and sides. The ones on his belly were not there yesterday. We have laminate flooring which he prefers to lay on but he will lay on our rug in our bedroom. He hasn't had problems before laying on the rugs.....As far as allergies....he was treated for seasonal allergies for runny nose and goopy eyes but he hasn't had any skin issues before.....hmmm I'm at a loss

    Blue.....we have had numerous food changes before this and this seems to be the best one for him. No problems with his tear stains and no gas!!!!!!! He has been on it for at least 6 months now.

    I'm thinking it could be seasonal allergies possibly .. we are battling awful sore eye wrinkles with Maggie right now. Something is making her eyes water and she is so red and sore poor baby!!

    Sorry ...... that's all I can think of if you haven't changed ANYTHING else!!

    Thanks all.....I will check his belly today when I get home from work. It doesn't seem to be bothering him, but that isn't saying that it's not! I will see how he is when I get home from work around lunch time. If he isn't better I might call the vet to have him checked out!

    seasonal allergies are just outrageous right now.. I am thinking it sounds like he came in contact with something that irritated him.. ? I would keep your eye on it and if it gets worse then call the vet.. we too OWN a wing at our vets place!
