    Clusters of Rasied/Textured White Spots

    ...a small patch of the white spots, but back then they weren’t raised, and there were a lot less, which is why we assumed it was just skin pigmentation changes or that he just had a little dry skin patch. So it doesn’t seem to be an immediate reaction, but more of something that has developed...

    Skin Discolouration around bum

    Not sure on creams, but I just saw that Malaseb has a rinse you could use. If you just search ketoconazole or miconazole shampoo/rinse/cream on your shopping sites you should find something. Those are the antifungal elements in those products (it will only have one or the other-ketaconazole is...

    Black spots on back

    Discolouration/darkening of scrotum?

    ...scrotum area is pink not blue. I will definitely post what my vet may think it is when he goes in for his appointment in January. Thank you for all this insight!

    Hi! Judah is our sweet boy's name. He's been to the vet already and had an antibiotic shot because some bacteria showed in his skin test. But the spots are still spreading across his legs.
