Black dots

Little black dots come out of Mooper's legs (back legs mainly) when you curry comb the front and back of her legs...

What are they?

Bugs? Brush some onto some white paper and do some investigating. If they squish red, they're definitely bugs. Anyway, it's a lot easier to tell what it is, (bugs, dirt, etc.) once you have some on white paper.

How big are they?

Could it be bugs? Or it could just be some dirt that was in her fur for awhile.

Her nose is maybe dandruff?

I'm thinking dandruff though hehe
Does it seem to hurt her though?

It isn't bugs I just thought it was kindof greasy

If I remember (and if she has it) on tuesday I will take a picture :)

Would you be able to post a picture of them? I know here sometimes you will find (usually only with horses kept in large pastures with tall grass) bott eggs which are yellow dots on horse's legs. I would assume those are similar, eggs of a bug that is in the pasture.

I would try to look up what they are but generally speaking would not be concerned.

When I had my horses on my property I found they were really difficult to remove.
