Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Charlie. A very common cause for firm, pea size bumps under the skin on dogs his age are sebaceous cysts. These are the accumulation of fluids / secretions from a group of cells that never make it to the surface of the skin. The secretions accumulate under the skin and form a firmer feeling bump that is mobile with the skin. What would be best here is to have your vet check him over and do an aspirate of some of these to see what cells / material comes from them. If they are sebaceous cysts, then they most likely are cosmetic issues. If they by chance are some other growth, then knowing what they are will put forth options as to deal with them.
