Is it fleas?
I would like some input from you guys. I started noticing these small bumps on Cecilia. On her shoulders, head and a few on her muzzle. When I part her hair I can see that she has little sores. Looks like she was bit by a small incest of bug. I automatically assumed fleas, but I cannot find a trace of them. I am continually combing her with a flea comb and I cannot find even one flea or any flea dirt either. As far as the sores go it is like she gets bit and then scratches it until she bleeds a little and it scabs over. She keeps getting new ones, only maybe 5 or 6 at a time, and the old ones heal but they are always in the same places. Never on the lower back or belly or legs. I don't think it is really clear, but I am posting a picture of one of her "bites." Does it sound/look like fleas? Have any of you had your pups get fleas and never be able to locate one?

It could be from fleas or some type of allergy. If it is fleas you can usually see them crawling around on the stomach and groin area.

Reuger had trouble with chiggers but they were mostly in the groin area. I should say that WE ALL had trouble with chiggers!!! YUCK!!!

I think I would treat it as fleas. You don't always see signs of them, but one little flea can make them miserable.
