Vet : Hi there, vet Andrew here.
Vet : If you gently squeeze one of the black dots like a spot, does black material come out?
No it doesn't seem too. They tiny, the size of his pores. They look almost like black heads
But he does lick a lot and they are increasing..
Vet : You are right, they are most likely blackheads, known as comedones. They are clogged hair follicles and are quite common in young dogs. The treatment is washing as instructed with a medicated shampoo containing benzoyl peroxide, which is a follice-flushing agent.
Vet : *follicle*
Vet : I see you are in Singapore, so I don't know what medications are available, but look for around a 3% strength in a good pet shop or vet's.
Vet : Depending on the product, you should wash Benson twice weekly with the shampoo until the comedones disappear, then weekly. It typically takes 2-3 weeks to cure, and the dog will usually grow out of the condition much as human teenagers do.
Vet : I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have further questions or concerns.
Yes moved here a couple of years ago. They charge insane prices for pets and all things related!
But thank you. I will try this
This is a great service for non emergency matters.
