Strange lumps on vulva of pregnant dog
I am trying to figure out what this is my dog is due in a week. She also had a little blood earlier. She is eating and acting normal otherwise. I've tried to get a hold of the on call vet 4 times tonight and left him a few messages.

RE: Strange lumps on vulva of pregnant dog
Is the area itchy at all? Is she licking/chewing in the area? They sort of look like pimples, perhaps it's simply a dermatitis (skin inflammation). Your vet may take a skin scrape and look the sample under the microscope to see what it may be. It could be caused by yeast, considering that yeast thrives in humid, dark areas areas such as between toes, armpits and ears and the dog's vulva skin folds.
Was the blood from her vulva or from the pimples? I would not expect during a pregnancy to see any colored discharge.
