• Quincy is current with his simperica however he came from outside with bite on his genital area. The other dog doesn’t have these bites but she has more hair. What could be causing this and always in the same area? I can send pictures.

    Hi Dwayne,
    I recommend that you take your dog into see your local veterinarian. There can be many things that look like insect bites on a dog's skin. These can include flea bites but can also be form environmental allergies, infection, or even an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the spots and the treatment he needs after they have examined him.
