911 help needed for my poor prairie dog
My prairie dog Pietje is almost 7 years old now. Lately bumps have started growing on his skin(lower back, arm pits, stomach, neck even a small one on his eye). They grow very rapid. Most of them have developed in 2 weeks and are reddish. It itches and he bites them open and every night he openes the closed wounds again. I have been to vets, but they don't know much about prairie dogs and are puzzled. He is now on anti biotics for 3 days and it didn't get better(maybe even worse) . I hope someone has seen or heard about this and can help me.I forgot: he eats and drinks normal also the rest of his behaviour is normal.
here are pics of the bumps and wounds:
