My 13 year old llasa apso has black spots all over s body

Customer Question

My 13 year old llasa apso has black spots all over his body especially in between his back legs. They're what I consider to be liver spots to humans. What are they and how can they be treated?

In May this year, he was prescribed 250 mg of Cephalexin, but it was never explained to me what caused the problem.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Are they raised at all or just discoloration on the skin?
Any redness, irritation, or changes to the skin around them?
Has Cherub had any skin irritation or itchiness since these appeared?
Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, this will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the wee paper clip on the tool bar above your text box. Or if you cannot see that on your computer/phone, then you can post them on an alternative site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, imgur, etc) and paste the web link here for me to check.
