hi my dog all of a sudden got a crusty black pimple that looks like and insect but its not its more like a burned kind of look and he only has one on his lower back i have no idea as to what it is but can you please help because i do not know what to do!
i currently have a miniture poodle who has also gotten the same little black crusty spot on his back around his shoulder right at his neck line it started really small now it is about an inch and looks like a burn healing
it is a hot spot you can treat it with sulodene get it at your local pet store ask for the best treatment for hot spots
hot spots are caused from the dogs sweating and usually most common in long haired animals my poodle wore short hair all summer i let it grow through fall and into winter shave the area and treat it as the bottle suggest it takes 7-10 days to heal
i hope this helps and your fur baby feels better son
