white pimple near female puppy's private area
There is a white pimple near my puppy's private area and i am worried.
If anyone has any ideas what could be causing this, please let me know......
Small white pimples on a puppy's belly, inner thighs and lower abdomen can be caused by a staph infection which is actually fairly common in puppies.
It can happen if they are lying on damp or dirty ground, or if they get wet and then lie down on a non-porous surfaces such as tile, linoleum etc.
One or two pimples can often be treated at home by cleaning the area thoroughly with warm water and an antibacterial soap. Then drying it thoroughly and applying a little antibacterial ointment or cream.
If this doesn't help, there are a lot of pimples, or the ones that are there get bigger and the area around them appears to be reddened, then you need to take your pup to a veterinarian as a course of antibiotics may be needed.
Hope this helps, best of luck with your puppy.
