Are these Blackheads? Or Bugs?? Or What???

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

I have lots (lots!) of what look like blackheads allover my belly, nipples, and rear, um, parts. I also have some bigger lumps (mom thought they were moles at first, but they have the same chunk of black hard stuff in them) on my back, neck, etc. They come out like little crescent shaped hard black things. I don't itch or lick alot...Should Mom clean these off, pop them, or...? Do other labs have this?

Too sexy for my- shirt.

Our lab doesn't. Other dogs don't either. Can't say I've seen another dog with anything like that unless they've got fleas (in which case it's the flea poo being left behind on the skin).

Have you consulted the vet yet? Maybe they could shed some light.

It doesn't seem like anything serious, but I would get it checked out anyway.

This is me- ignoring you!

Can you post pictures of them? Are they ticks?

Could be some type of infection, rash, allergy. I would have it checked to be on the safe side.

tics? they can get clogged pores but that seems like a little more than a clogged pore if there are that many spots

No, pay- attention to- meeeeeee!!!!!!!!- !!!

Gabe gets clogged pores on his tummy sometimes & they have hard little black stuff in them, they are not a big deal. But if there is a lot of them and some are really big you should probably have them checked out, you never know, they could be something else.

W0ow, that is weird! It sounds like blackheads or ticks, or maybe like someone said, flea dirt. I would defintiely take him to the vet, I mean, even if it is blackheads, to have that many seems kinda weird. Let us know what it is after you go! Im interested!
