I just brought Gracie, our 20 month old hav, back from the vet because she's had red dots on her stomach, and I also noticed a few bald spots on her sides. The spots have gotten a bit crusty, which the vet said are pustules. He said it is a secondary infection, like a staph infection, from allergies. At this point, he's thinking it is caused by the environment. He gave her 2 weeks of an antibiotic and 3 weeks of antihistamine. Also, virbac, a medicated shampoo. If this doesn't help, he will give her cortisone. So, yes, please be sure to get your puppy to the vet!!
BTW-- I know someone had posted a pic of a dogs belly showing some red spots and a few pustules. I was looking for it, trying to compare it to Gracie's. Does anyone remember posting a pic like that? Thanks!
