Customer Question

Customer: Hi. I'm ***** ***** and my 11 year old male Westie (otherwise in perfect health) has developed dozens of small bumps or skin tags all over his body. This began with a couple about 6 months ago. They do not appear to be itchy for him. What are they and should we be concerned?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Well the bumps are about pimple size are not discolored.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Dog Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: sure
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
