Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has Prince had these signs?

Are the lumps flesh colored like hives or white topped like pimples/pustules?

Where are they located specifically?

Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so, this will let me see what you are seeing. To post them online, you can use the paperclip icon on the tool bar above your text box. Or if you can't see that on your computer/phone, then you can post them on any other site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, imgur, etc) and paste the web link here for me to check.
