Customer Question
My 7 month old...

My 7 month old goldendoodle has green filled blisters on his inner thighs/lower stomach area. He doesn't seem to scratch or lick them much. They start out as hard bumps and now I've seen them develop into blister/infections. I thought maybe he was getting bit when he plays wlth other dogs but now I'm not sure. He doesn't have any fleas I've ever seen.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?

Teddy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Teddy?

He seems happy and healthy but his voracious appetite has slowed down lately...but I was assuming that's because he's stopped growing so quickly. We use 1 x per month oral Nexguard for fleas/ticks...which he has never had a problem with.

I'm sorry to hear of this with Teddy. You appear to be described a deep pyoderma - bacterial skin infection usually caused by Staph. Can you upload a photo(s) of representative skin to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.
