My female puppy is 3 1/2 months old. Just today I noticed a big pimple looking thing right above her private area. It is kind of a hard lump under the skin as well. Is this a pimple or something more serious? Anyone else seen anything like this before, I am not sure what to do about it.
MAybe nothing, but you probably should see a vet. Could be an infected tick bite. Also, if it gets a ring around it & looks like a bulls eye, it could be lyme disease. How is she acting? Some puppies also get a puppy acne, it is usually on the chin & lip area but can be on the stomach. For now I would keep it clean. Maybe a little peroxide on a cotton ball. Does she have any bumps around the lips or chin?
Maybe someone else has seen this & can advise. I have heard puppy acne is from immature immune systems & may be worse if they eat & drink from a plastic bowl.
