Skin Problems, help

by Dottie
(South Carolina, Seneca )

I have a miniature Schnauzer, he's silver and white, I've tried everything I know and followed the vets office visits concerning my fur baby. He has started getting black bumps on his back, neck, shoulders and legs. He is 10yrs old. I feel so bad for him because now he's started getting fatty cyst. Is there anything I can do to help with his skin problems?

diet for Dottie's Schnauzer
by: Linda

Dottie,
If you have the time, I would try feeding your 10-year-old on lightly poached white fish or cooked boneless chicken chicken and rice. Our old Schnauzer loved this and it is very gentle on their stomachs. It can also help their skin improve as none of this food is processed. Good luck.

Schnauzer bumps
by: Dottie +

Thanks Linda, my Schunazer has the lion's, he's 10 yrs old. His is between his legs where his privates are. He takes Omega3 fish oil. I wish I could find a good shampoo and conditioner. I buy the Best they have at Pet Smart or Petco, I just worry to much about my fur baby, he's all I have left. My husband passed away with cancer. Thanks again Linda.

Good luck Dottie, our thoughts are with you, Linda

Schunazer bumps
by: AnoDotte

Thanks for your feedback,my miniture Schnauzer bumps, he has some that are large. The vet said they are seed warts. Sometimes when I bath him, like a little seed will come off they are black. I give him Omega3 fish oil and bath him once a week. I also ordered the stuff the first lady talked about he's had it 3 times with wet food.i take very good care of my fur baby an so thankful that you reached out to me.Hes also had pancreatic and his stomach is very sensitive. Can someone let me know what kind of food is the best. He gets tired of the same stuff. I guess I just worry to much. Thanks again.

Cysts
by: Anonymous

We have a female 8 year old rescue miniature who we found in the local dog rescue home. She has developed fatty cysts which cause her no discomfort and our vet has assured us that they will do no harm. Our 10 year old male miniature has also started to develop a few of these cysts, seems to be the norm for them in later years.

skin
by: Linda

Many Minis suffer from skin issues. The black bumps, if they are small, could be "Schnauzer bumps" which are like blackheads. If they do not bother him, don't worry.
Fatty cysts are also not uncommon in older dogs. My friend's Labradoodle is nearly 10 and has lots -some of them none too small. They are called lipomas and, as long as they are not cancerous, they do not usually affect the dog, so no point in having them all removed, which would be stressful for your Schnauzer.
You could add an Omega 3 fish oil to your dog's food once a day to help skin and also gently groom him and keep his coat clean.
As long as the bumps don't bother your dog, he is not suffering at all, you probably notice them more than him.
