My 3 y/o chiweenie has started getting bumps above his head like something is biting him.

Does anyone think this is something to be concerned about?

It's impossible to tell what those bumps are online via photo. Could be bites, cysts, and a whole bunch of other things. Best bet to have your vet take a look! Let us know what you find out!

My dog had similar bumps last summer around her neck, they came back again this spring. It turned out to be a fungal skin infection. I took her to the vet numerous times to find out what could get rid of it and the only thing that worked was a leave-in conditioner the vet prescribed. I would highly recommend you go see a vet to get it checked out. Like @kmes said, it could be a number of causes.

Get a vet to check it out. My boy, a Chi x Dach, had something similar last year, it resolved on it's own before I could get him to the vet but it's always best to get lumps and bumps checked out.
