Here's the whole story.
About a month after we got Shiro (he was 4 months) he started getting small dot like dark brown sports on his belly that appeared to be itchy. I took him to a vet and he was prescribed some oral and topial antibiotics. The spots disappeared after the course was done but came back in a couple months. A friend of mine had a border collie puppy of the same age with the same symptoms and her vet said it was a puppy thing. So I thought it might have been the same, especially after realizing that our vet liked to overtreat, overvaccinate and overtest.
We changed the vet and I think the spots either weren't as bad or disappeared because I don't remember the vet saying anything about it.
When we came back for neutering his tummy looked worse. The spots were bigger and now black. The vet said it was staph infection and sent us back home with some antibiotics. They helped, but now, about a month and a half later he got it again.
The staff also told me to keep soap on him for 10 minutes when bathing, but he doesn't really get bathed a lot anymore, every 2-3 weeks if he starts to stink.
Now I have to mention that Shiro was off flea prevention this past month, but we had to put him back on it because he is wit other dogs a lot and fleas started bugging him. This was about 2 weeks ago. Could it be the flea prevention causing this? He's on Advantage now, but he was on Frontline before.
He eats Innova large breed puppy food. It is not grain free, but a good quality food.
I read about staph infection in dogs and it looks nothing like what he has.
Has anybody seen something like that before?
Could it be any kind of allery?
