Does anyone have any idea what these are or what the cause is? A little back ground...I noticed them starting to form about 24 hours after our hunting trip. I think it is either a reaction to a grass, but wondering if it could also be a bacteria or fungus from her hunting vest. It did get wet and she wore it all day. Any tips on a remedy, hoping to save myself a vet visit. Hoping someone can help... Thank you in advance.

I would wash her skin with alcohol or Peroxide and keep an eye on it.

Beats me what it is. Nettles or Ivy?

I'm not shy though, I'd head for the vet if I found that on Dot.

Yeah, the vet loves me.

Last Duck season my dog was getting some kind of rash (not really bumps though.) Contact Dermatitis caused mostly by putting him in the kennel when he was damp.

I'd let it go a few days and see what happens.

Those are pustules - likely staph infection. Underlying cause to be determined by your vet.
