    Hi, can anyone advise me please !!!! I have a 4 month old black lab and today I noticed she has what look like spots all around her groin/ innner leg area and an odd one around her nipples....they dont look nasty or anything and dont weep and I have not seen her scratching them or anything...I only noticed them because I was giving her a tummy rub.........are they bad or just something puppies get ??? thanks

    I recently sold a litter of pups and one of the bitch pups developed this on her tummy.She was checked by vet who said it was a kind puppy acne and it would clear,which it did.
