bumps on springer

4 posts in this topic

My springer has bumps all over his body from his head to the back legs. He just got a check up about 2 weeks ago. Hes been doing a little bit more icthing in the last couple of days other then that he been acting normal. Had him out hunting this morning he seemed the same as always. Could this be an alergic reaction or worse.

I would suspect some sort of allergy. Did you pup get any shots at his last visit?

I would certainly get him into the vet asap. You never know what it might be but it certainly doesn't sound normal. I have a Springer too so I'm curious as to what this might be.

He might have a staph infection. Do the bumps have pimple like heads on the top? If they do then I'd take him into the vet for antibiotics.

When I check him this morning most of the bump where gone and now tonight I can't find any. The only shot he got was his rabies. He did get into the garbage yesterday morning so I think it was just an allergic reaction.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
