Puppies are often in contact with the ground, have sensitive skin, and don’t have fully developed immune systems. For some, this can be a recipe for a puppy skin infection called a pyoderma. Pyoderma infections look like little red pimples and are similar to impetigo infections in human children. If your puppy appears to have little red pimples, particularly on her belly, consult your vet. Treatment is simple and effective.

We provide our puppy families with buyer education that includes information about pyoderma so that they know how to recognize and treat pyoderma and also to help allay some of the fears and panic that puppy parents can have when their little ball of joy has a veterinary situation. We will be making our buyer education package available to breeders at a very affordable cost at a later date so that you can help educate your buyers.
