Question What did I find on Kona while in a bath???

What is this? It's on both sides of his willy and it's not dried blood or a scab. Its like little black dots. I think we are deff. going to have a vet check on Monday, but does anyone know what this might be?
My poor guy... goodness....

Poor little Kona - maybe that is what is causing his other problems. Let us know whenyou get back from the vets!

Ryan, I think it ring worm can be transfered by touch. It is actually a fungal infection. Poor little Kona, bad enough when things happen to our dog but worse when they are still so small.

They can get it on their bellies from the grass or from another animal with it. The incubation period is 14 days so he could have gotten it from his breeders kennel. It's very common in pups, but we are hoping it's just an allergy to something he's been around. Ringworm is a fugial infection treated by topical cream and goes away fast, so we aren't too worried about it, but I am headed to the vets now.

The problem with ringwormis that it CAN be transferred to people from the pup. So if Kona does have it, keep a close eye on the kids and yourself. Yes it is easly cured with meds, but wanted to let you know this in case he has it.
