strange bumps on puppy
My boxer puppy Oliver is just about 6 months old. A couple weeks ago I noticed a weird bump between his shoulder blades that eventually crusted over and kind of peeled off, taking a chunk of hair with it. Now it's totally gone. A couple of days ago I noticed 2 more similar bumps on the top of his neck that have also peeled off and taken a chunk of hair with it. Even though it peeled off the 2 bumps are still there and are slightly pink, but didn't bleed or anything. Now my poor puppy has 3 little bald spots about the size of a pencil eraser! Wondering if this is allergies? He's already on Blue Buffalo's high protein, grain free puppy food. We live in the desert so I don't think it's insect or environmental allergies. Anyone else have any experience with this or suggestions on how to handle it?
