So, we noticed a little zit-like thingie on Beckham's tummy:




it's on his underbelly.  Does this look like a zit?  Any good home remedies?

Wipe it with Oxy pads (the human acne pads).  If its a zits, it should help get rid of it and keep pthers from recurring.  If not then yo may need to make a trip to the vet.

Maybe a mosquito? or flea?  Are they on a treatment?  Are mosquitos bad where you're at?

Something else you can do is spray a solution of Nepetalactone Type Catnip Oil on your dog (avoid the eyes) and carefully wipe it on her ears and face.

Catnip oil is scientificall yproven to be a better insect repellant than DEET (10 x's better)

Just a thought...

The mosquitos are terrible here in East TN.  When you take into account very mild winters along with alot of mountains/woods you get tons of mosquitos.  I'd say in the last 3 or 4 years I bet we haven't had a total of more than 4 or 5 inches of snow and mild winters.
