Skin problem
Maltese Poodle 3 years old - up to date with all his injections etc.
3 weeks ago I discovered 3 red spots on my dog 2 under his chin and the other on his stomach took him to my Vet and according to him it was a spider bite - he gave my dog an injection and subscribed Neoderm cream, Lenisolone tablets and cephalexin capsules after 5 days I took him back and he gave me more of the same medicine although it is spreading and to be honest I do not think it was a spider bite. He is almost finish with the medicine and there are new spots - Can you perhaps help me?

If the lesions are becoming more numerous it is possible that the medication is ineffective. I suggest you return to your vet and ask them to investigate the problem further or request a referral to a specialist veterinary surgeon.
