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

How long has he been showing these signs?

Is it just a single pimple? What size?

Any other changes to the skin (ie redness, crusts/scaling, ulcers, scabs or sores)?
Any diet change in the 2 months before this started?
