Moles on skin

I have searched the forum for this information but am unable to locate any info.
Our Hav has moles - no other way to say it - lots of moles on his skin.
He had his teeth cleaned 2 weeks ago and we had 15 removed. Some had become very enlarged and he had scratched it open and bleeding. It was located just behind his ear so it was a great scratching spot. The others don't seem to bother him but had changed in color and size so we had them removed. He still has some but I can feel more coming on.
He will be 12 yr old in Aug and I really don't like having him put to sleep - however for his cleaning and mole removal, the vet said he did great.

Question- does you Hav have moles? Does anyone know why? or Why some do and some don't?

Thanks
Button's Mom

No worries

Did you ask your vet these questions? What did the vet say about the moles? Also, could you post a picture? I believe dogs can get many different types of things on their skin. The vet should know what they are. Some are harmless and some are not.

Sorry for the blood but Button had scratched this mole so the vet removed it. The one on his paw was removed at the same time.
He still has a few and I was hoping for some options if you have ideas.
Thanks

Thank you for posting the picture. I have never seen anything like that. I was also wondering what the vet said about these. Did he explain to you what they are and what might possibly cause them? I would want to know and if my vet would not take the time to explain this I would go elsewhere.

Yes, when he removed them, he explained there is nothing to worry about, they all looked "normal" underneath. So that was good. I guess I am trying to figure out if this is just something that happens to aging (12Yr) Havanese or not.
Maybe someone has seen this before on their older dogs
thanks

No worries

My Mia is almost 12 and does have one wart type thing on her the vet said was fine and it does not seem to bother her. I found this article on warts which I thought was interesting.

Just wondering too if you still doing vaccines for your dog. Sometimes too many vaccines can fire up the immune system and cause some skin problems.
