  • How long has he had them? Is he limping? Whining? Refusing to eat? Any other symptoms?

  • No. He doesn't seem to mind the bumps. He had a tick before about 2 months ago. I got him the flea and tick prevention medicine and he hasn't gotten them at all. But when I got it the lady told me that the ticked caused a bump and that she said it was a reaction or something. And she said they would disappear and they did but suddenly came back. He doesn't have a tick because I checked. But my dog stays out side in the patio. I'm not sure if ants caused it!

  • Is it hot where you live where it could be a heat rash from where his skin is constantly rubbing from the heat?
