Thread: Not Sure Whats Wrong with Griffy

    Skin Allergy is almost always accompanied by itching. Are you sure there is no itching?

    This sounds a bit strange to me...

    I obviously haven't seen the dog but I'm not so sure about the diagnosis.

    Definalty no itching. I tried to take a photo when the lumps came up but at the time the only camera I had was really crappy.
    If it comes up again I'll try to get some better pics.
    But for the moment I've got my fingers crossed that what ever caused it has gone away

    Ok well the lumps are back, but this time I've got pics although they're not very good.
    I noticed them when I got home today. Not too bad they're only on his tummy (last time after a couple of days they'd spread up his sides and down his legs.
    I haven't done anything different this week. I did change his food about 3 weeks ago but it's a brand he's been on before.

    This is the best I could do, he wouldn't stand still hehe

    They look like the same thing NJ gets. NJ hasn't got them for 2 months now, A friend said to me i should change our washing power. So now we are not sure if it was fleas. Even our vet is a bit stumped. Just thought I'd add my 2 cents worth.

    My vets the same, he said not to worry too much about it since it doesn't bother him.

    Do you do anything to get rid of NJ's lumps or do they just go on their own?

    They would never go on there own, NJ would go on a course of Cephalexin tablets for a week the tablets would make him fart really bad, So i ask the vet if there was something else he could gave me for it. Vet gave me ilium neocort cream to rub on the spots it worked. So from that the tablets worked so did the cream. But 2 months ago i changed washing power and i double rinse NJ blankets and no problems so far thats been 2 months now.
    I found after a lot of thinking about it all and i noticed he would break out more, after i bathed him, 'drying him with the towels' I hope some of this helpsIt never worried NJ, It just looks awful so i know how you feel

    My horse got these same looking lumps all over his body once...the vet took a biopsy and still came back with no idea...they put it down to midgy mites.
