• My small dog has non-raised, red spots around her belly. There are a few under or on her legs and arms, and they don't appear to bother her. What should I do? What could they be?

    I recommend that you take Coco into see her veterinarian. The red spots can be a sign of a skin infection. With you seeing 9 of them, it is best that she be examined. In some cases of skin disease, the spots can spread and cause other issues if not treated. Your veterinarian can let you know what is the most likely cause for her spots. Treatment will be based on the primary cause.
