• My 11 month old puppy has red spots on his belly and on his right back leg. Is this normal for his age

    Hi Leo,
    If the red spots are still present, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Most cases the red spots are not normal and they could be a sign of an underlying skin issue. There can be many different causes for this including skin mites, allergies, flea allergies, or another underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the spots and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
