When I have pet Cookie's head lately I have noticed little bumps on his scalp. At first I thought he had a tick but once i parted the hair away from the bump it was skin color. He has a bunch of them on his head. They almost feel like grains of sand and are as small as a poppy seed. Does anyone have any idea what they could be? I know they are fairly new because I have only noticed them since his last hair cut.

The only way for sure to find out what is the problem is to have your vet examine him. If a treatment is necessary, he will prescribe what is needed.

Yeah I didn't think it was mange either after I googled it. I don't think its anything I need to go running to the Vet with I was just curious. They literally are like tiny warts, about the size of a grain of sand. He isn't bothered by them at all I was just looking to see if anyone knew what they were? He has about 5 that I noticed sporadically spaced on his scalp.
