My dog has red bumps under her paw
Hi, My dog Mindy is a 2 year old Dachshund she has been getting these red bumps on the bottom of her paws and these red like I'm not really sure how to discribe it but, they tend to go away but they keep coming back, I've taken her to the vet and they've said that it's just from the moisture and the weather (I live in Miami, Florida) I have pictures of the bumps but they aren't great pictures because my camera is bad,


Are some pictures, again sorry they aren't really clear

They gave me Malaseb spray and liquid but they don't seem to do very much,

The bumps do go away but they tend to come back,

I apperciate any feedback and thank you in advance

I'm really worried about my little puppy and I do wish for these things to go away

Once again thanks in advance!

As you know all your photos are so out of focus we can't tell what we are looking at.  Dr. Coyner here is a dermatologist and she will be able to help you.  I would think a more complete exam, along with some anti-biotics would certainly be a good start.  However, Dr. Coyner is our expert and I'm sure she will help you.  HOWever, I would venture to take photos in focus as that may be of some help to her!!

The most common reason for swollen bumps on the paws and between the toes in dogs are allergies and secondary infection. Does she lick at the paws? Has your doctor given any antibiotic or anti-inflammatory medications that make the lesions go away temporarily, or do they seem to go away and come back randomly? Attributing the problems to the weather is not all of the story -- increased humidity and heat may increase the chance of infection, but do not cause the problems by themselves, otherwise every single dog in FL would have the same problem. I suggest an evaluation by a veterinary dermatologist to get to the bottom of the problem. There are 2 in Miami:

Alison K. Flynn-Lurie   Phone: 305-665-2820  
Miami Veterinary Specialists  
8601 Sunset Drive

Millie Rosales   Phone: 305 666 4142  
Southeast Veterinary Referral Center

Good luck,
