      Non Lab Question..

      Any thoughts on this? My sister's rottie puppy. All the things my boys have been through I can't offer her any advice.

      Looks like ringworm. What body part is that?

      I also can't distinguish where this is. Most likely, if it's not bothering him, it's not a big deal, but if in doubt (or if you are super worried), go to the vet.

      It could be as simple as a scab that fell off, but if it begins to turn bright red, it's likely a hystiocytoma (common in puppies) which will resolve on its own.

      Thank you. It's on the leg. She said it's turning red and it "balled up" and not tender. She will vet Monday if it begins to bother Kimber.

      My boys haven't had skin issues. I'm the ortho mom. ��

      Still thinking ringworm...legs/puppies common...reddening/ulceration/hairloss/classic shape. You can treat it with an OTC product...Tomlyn used to make a good one, perhaps they still do. You really don't want it to spread either more on the puppy or to other dogs/humans.

      Histiocytoma is a Benign Skin Growth in Dogs - Veterinary Partner - VIN


      Chances are good if it's getting red, it's this.

      I'm thinking it could also be a sebaceous cyst?

      She said it's really red today. They have a vet coming through tomorrow to check the cattle so I think she plans on asking him to take a peak at the pup. Seems to be the only one on her. Hopefully it's not ringworm. I'll let you guys know what the vet says!

      It is a histiocytoma and thankfully not ringworm! I forgot to come back and update.
