Wait, how do dogs get pimples?
Acne occurs when their hair follicles become irritated and just like humans it last for a short time. If you have a long hair pet, you have nothing to worry about. It’s the short haired dogs like Boxers and Bulldogs that experience break outs.
Age range of breakouts
Between the ages of 5-8months. Once your pet reaches about a year old they shouldn’t have acne anymore.
- Red bumps
- Scars from lesions
- Pet may constantly rub face against furniture and/or rug
What to expect at the vet?
There are other diseases that are similar to acne so your vet will rule those out first. Then your vet will prescribe a acne medication and/or shampoo to use.
