No responses to my Havanese health post

Doesn't anyone have any experience with this with their own dogs? I know the vet said there is nothing there to worry about, but I'm looking for some pet owner advice.

Two people I know since last week said their puppies also had little pimple-like bumps, that it's common at that age. Anyone??

Thanks very much.

I guess no one has had experience with this. If the vet says it's just a pimple and not to worry, I would just keep the area clean and..well - not worry!

You wouldn't want to be pinching such a sensitive spot, or having the puppy anesthetized to remove something harmless.

All dogs can be prone to pimples and acne. No biggie, it's not life treatening.

As any pet get's older any "bump" or lump requires a close eye for changes.

Boxer's & Labs are very prone to certain lypomas and other lumpy issue's like cyst's.
I have found 3 on Ciara in the past 6 months, I carefully examine each one at least every other day for changes. None noted. At her next vist to Dr. Stapler, I will have her check them out...I am not worried about them in the least...and most here know how I dote over Ciara.

All dogs eventually get a bump or lump or two...some people never realize it.

XOXOXOX - Thank you !! I examine Murphy's 2 little bumps every day too.

He is not completely house trained yet (not even completely wee wee pad trained - another story - Ugh!), and I thought maybe from laying on the carpeting and some of the urine residue. Last night I started removing the soiled carpeting. It's very old, and I can no longer get all the smell out. This weekend I'll remove the rest of the soiled carpeting and buy some bathroom-type, washable area rugs until M is trained.

Last night I cleaned his little bumps with soap & warm water. This morning it looks like the first bump is a bit smaller (or maybe it's me hoping it is). It DEFINITELY isn't bigger and I really do think it's smaller.

Anyway, how we love these animals !! Thank you for your post.
