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.

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

Liz and Lilly
yes, on Frontline!

and yes, mosquitos are horrid here!  they joke that mosquitos are the minnesota state bird, lol.
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...

Roxy gets those too!!! Hers are from the skeeters :wink:  They are aweful here this year!!! :evil:  Horrid little insects
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.
