Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Where is the black spot located?
2) One on each side?
3) Do you have a clear photograph of the spot?
4) Does it appear oily?
