Customer Question
My 8 month old...

My 8 month old black lab has a bumpy, wart looking rash on his lower jaw. One of the bumps has what appears to be a little blood or at least blood vessel. He had a fungal infection in his ear 2 months ago. Help?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?

Silas

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

He isn't showing any signs of discomfort. He is super sweet, chill lab. He chews up a lot of junk and ingests it quite a bit. Rubber, branches and sticks, primarily from a spruce tree, oh and chews the bark off the spruce tree. We live in Alaska so don't have ticks or flees.
