skin rash

My foxterrier has bumps that looks like mosquito bites all over his skin. Is it serious? Should I urgently take him to the Vet?

Maybe its fleas so you should treat him for fleas and treat his environment i.e bedding + carpeting where he spends a fair amount of time. Sometimes dogs/cats are allergic toflea saliva and they get raised bumps like " pimples"  where there body has reacted to the bite.
