Very bright red spots on my dog's belly *eek*
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Tue May-06-08 05:56 PM by malta blue
Egypt is outside on her run right now. My daughter just yelled up to me at the house to hurry and see.

There are two red circles (almost perfectly round) on Egypt's belly that I have never seen before - the are about the size of a regular bead and they are bright, blood red. It is NOT blood. I ran my fingers over them and it did not seem to bother her at all. The spots seem to be changes in pigmentation on her skin.

They do not appear to be insect bites. There is a faint cat scratch on the inside of her leg, but no bleeding or scarring there.

Has anyone had any experience with something like this?
