Hi there. Thanks for requesting me. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

How long have they been there?

What kind of dog is he?

Does he have any health issues you're aware of?Is he on any medications?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no issues that I'm aware of, but he seems to be very sensitive and he is on all organic food and no meds at this time.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They have been there for the past year or two, they didn't seem to be a problem but they look red and swollen at times. I wonder if there is something more serious going on. He is 9.5 lb poodle, 11 year old.

When was the last time he had a thyroid test?

Have you ever had a skin scraping done on the areas?

Do they ever seen to be worse at any time of the year?
