Red Sores on Dog's Muzzle
Red sore muzzle
My two year old , Loki, has some red bumps on either side of his muzzle. He has suffered on and off with this problem but it has seemed to clear up on it's own in the past. We recently moved to Louisiana and thought it was mosquito bites, but now we are not so sure as it looks the worst it has been at the moment.
He once had a reaction on his muzzle after receiving his puppy vaccinations so we were wondering if it could be some sort of allergy.
He was last vaccinated just under a year ago and received a 3 year rabies vaccination at the time so, thankfully we won't need to revaccinate him for that just yet.
When we first moved here we gave him Advantage multi for heartworm but now we use a tablet called nuheart (we started around 5 months ago) which we order from Australia. We still give the cats Advantage multi. He has had the red bumps on his nose on and off over the past year.
Loki eats raw meat (mostly chicken with ground bones) and some Merrick dry food. He is otherwise healthy and full of energy and very happy and affectionate.
