Dachshund Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 6/12/2006
I noticed that my dachshund has about five bumps on her feet and head. I think that they might be ant bites because it looks like bumps that people get when an ant or mesquito bites them. I wanted to know if I should put any medicine on the bites or just wait it out.

6/20/06 If they are affecting her in anyway (scratching) or if there is hairloss around the areas with or without scabs, I would have your vet check it out. Otherwise, it probably is ant bites if you live in an area that has ants and she spends a lot of time outdoors. If a dog spends most of it's time outdoors, it will come in contact with all sorts of "critters". :) Paula
