Bruise, blood blister or something else?
My mini goldendoodle has two red/black blotches/bruises on his skin.One of them is on his shoulder, is the size of a quarter and feels more like a blood blister. The other one is bigger and not round, and is on his inner thigh. Any idea what this could be?

This may be nothing more than bruises after minor injury -such as playing too rough.
But my instinct is that you should take your dog to the vet for a complete blood work-up, and examination.
There may be a decrease in platelets, and it is important if so, to find out why. And to find out if there is any decrease in blood clotting time. This is quite easy to test.
A visit to the vet is the best thing to do.

Welcome to the forum.....These don't look like blisters to me! Personally, I suspect a bleeding disorder.....You need to have your Vet run a full blood panel and look for abnormalities.

I wouldn't wait, because in case of a serious injury, she would bleed out before you could get help.....Please, come back and let us know what your Vet says.....I'll be interested......Karla

Agree with the above.  Best to have the Vet check this out as there are diseases or clotting disorders that can cause this.  Hope it is nothing serious
