Tonight I noticed small bumps under the fur on the loose skin of my German Shorthaired pointers necks. They're weird bumps, some smaller than others and they're in the same place on both of my dogs. Looking through the fur, the skin on them looks slightly pink. They don't seem to bother them, but I have no idea what these bumps are. Any ideas? :confused:

Could they be hives? Maybe they both ran into something that they are allergic to? Or do they wear some kind of collar? Heat rash? Just throwing ideas out there really :)

my pitbull puppy has something similiar if not the same. some are bigger than others and are mostly grouped on the back of her neck and between her shoulders. They happened overnight and at the beginning it didn't seem to bother her but after 3-4 weeks of having them shes starting to scratch.

the vet did skin scrapings and she tested negative for mange and food allergies. it's not fleas or ticks either. She was put on antihistamines for 10 days and no change. Right now she's getting medicated baths twice a week. Hopefully there will be an improvement.

I'm hoping it's just a heat rash (since it's been unusually hot here in Vancouver this summer). Have you noticed any big weather changes in terms of heat? Did they recently roll around or romp in some plants or bushes?
