Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call.

Thanks for trusting me to help you and Priscella today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 30 years of experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information to better assist you if you don’t mind.

Do the bumps seem to itch her?

Have you checked her over to see if she has fleas?

Has she been seen by your vet for this yet?

Dog Veterinarian: petdrz, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Dandruff can be a sign of skin problems, but is not specific for any one condition. Allergies to food or environmental triggers can indeed cause bumps on the skin. Have you tried any medication for this?

I've tried benadryl and moist bathing dog wipes and it has helped
Dog Veterinarian: petdrz, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

If an antihistamine helped, it is possible that there is an underlying allergy component. Unfortunately, many dogs with allergies will also develop secondary bacterial or yeast infections. This cannot be determined just by visual inspection and a test called a skin cytology is needed to confirm. This may be the case if the lesions are not clearing up completely. It may be best to have your vet evaluate this if it is not resolving so that a skin cytology can be performed and the proper medication prescribed if needed.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.

My posted replies are for general education only and not meant as a diagnosis. Only after a thorough veterinary examination can a diagnosis for your pet be made and specific treatments be advised or medications be prescribed.
