Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.

I am sorry to hear your dog is having this problem.

I will need a little bit more information to better help you:
Are these growths attached to the skin or are they sitting on top of the skin?

Are you able to take a detailed image of these suspected growths?
Is your dog on monthly flea/tick and heart worm prevention?

Where are these growths at on the body and how long have they been there?
