My boy's developed some bumps on his back and side. They first appear as almost like lumps under the skin - then turn into almost a zit that you can squeeze and a little bit of blood comes out. There's also a bit of hair missing as well in some spots - but overall whatever it is, it doesn't seem to bother him terribly.

I've added some pics - if anyone can help me out that'd be great.

Thanks

U should prob take ur dog to the vet they can take a tissue sample if there's blood coming out when u squeeze it. They could be dry spots or mange in it's early stages but keep an eye on it and see if it's worsens or spreads. I would just take my dog to the vet.

Does your dog have fleas? Does it play out in an area with sand/dirt? My dog gets similar bumps occasionally from being outside. She'll get ate up by chiggers or sand fleas...and since our entire yard is sand it happens. lol

I would take your dog to the vet,it's better to be safe then sorry. But I agree with Wingman, we also have a yard of sand and my dog got bumps on him from flea bites now I treat my yard and dog regularly and it has disappeared.

I don't have a sandy yard at all and my pup Kane got those same exact bumps, same progression, same non-reaction to them. His were on the back of his neck and the top of his head though.

My vet is about 95% sure it's environmental allergies, which is likely since Kane already has food allergies. They popped up when it started getting hot during the summer and have completely gone away now that it's fall and is consistently 50 degrees F and below. When summer swings back around next year, I have to take him to the vet to explore our options on how to control them. Stop squeezing them though! You're only making them worse. If you just leave them alone and let your dog go about its business, they'll disappear in 2-3 days.
