I have a mini schnauzer 8yrs old and I've noticed that when

I have a mini schnauzer 8yrs old and I've noticed that when I last shaved his back and upper leg that he had so many bumps all around. Some bumps seemed to pop as I was inspecting the area. After I bathed him in shampoo (oatmeal) his skin was softer, shiny and bumps started to go away. I see some now though that are sporatic ( one on leg, arm pit, stomach, one on chest and front leg) and they are different almost like a mosquito bite because it's raised but has a sort of dark scab at the top. What do you think this could be? How can it be treated? P.S He is on prescription food for bladder stones so his diet hasn't changed in 6years.JA: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No woundsJA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the dog's name?Customer: SparkyJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sparkly?Customer: Sometimes if he gets small bumps or lesions on his inner thigh it may have a yellow or greenish pus in it. These don't occur often but will suddenly pop up from time to time.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Iiii Dr. We hope you are staying cool somehow now that

Hiiiii Dr Peter. We hope you are staying cool somehow now that summer has unleashed its temperatures and humidity on us. :DIvan's nails are still growing in a strange way and I do not want to have them dremmeled again. I cannot have him anesthetized every time he needs them cut or the groomer misses a nail or two. He had them dremmeled at the Vet about 6 months ago - and I was hoping all would grow normally - but 2 nails grow sideways!!I have a prescription for xanax. The pills are .5 milligrams. Ivan is 62 pounds. He is definitely going to need at least one, before I take him for his beauty treatment (LOL) because he won't even let me touch the funky one.What can he safely have - and how long prior to his grooming should he get it, please?? He will get a bath, and the ears, and face etc done - and then they do the nails when he is dry.Recommendations please??As always - thank you SO much for your help
