Rash?

My little one, Jooni, has these strange pussy bumps that keep appearing on her lower abdomen - has anyone seen anything like this before?

They're kinda like blisters, but the fluid isn't clear, it's definitely pus. She's had 3 that have popped and healed, and today I noticed another one starting to form.

Looks like pyoderma. Not uncommon in puppies and relatively easy to treat. There are several classifications of pyoderma. Some really minor cases (superficial) will resolve on their own or with minor anitbiotic therapy. More severe cases will require cultures and long time antibiotic therapy. Sometimes antibactierial medicated shampoos are helpful.

my pup had those exact same things. The vet said they usually go away in about a week or two, if not then you'll need antibiotics.
