Pimple like bumps

Postby MissAye2010 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 8:18 pm

My new puppy seems to have Little pimple like bumps on her belly, also noticing some yellow discharge after she urinates! Wonder what the cause could be? She will go to the vet on Tuesday, just wondering If anyone else has experienced this! She's 10 weeks old.

Many puppies get those little ant bite looking bumps on their belly just from the nature of their former environment; in adulthood, its often associated with food allergies. Are you feeding a corn or wheat based food? It could be the cause of her issues. Although its very rare on the belly, wouldn't hurt to have the vet eyeball it and make sure its not a form of mange.

As far as the discharge goes, have the vet look at it; it could be a UTI. Those, too, are relatively easy to fix and common in puppies with inverted vulvas or crates with plastic surfaces that are not bleached and cleaned regularly.

could be a staph infection too - Peanut got several staph infections in a row when we changed her to a food she obviously had a problem with. Vet will know.

The discharge sounds like puppy vaginitis and should clear up on it's own. Buy
To be safe, she should be checked for a UTI.
The bumps are likely a bacterial infection. Until her appointment, keep her clean and dry and prevent her from licking or scratching it.
