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

What do the bumps look like? Little pimples or little skin colored lumps?
Any other changes to the skin (ie pustules, redness, crusts/scaling, ulcers,or sores)?
Any diet change in the 2 months before this started?
When did you last apply the Advantage?
