    DefaultDog zits?

    Two weeks ago, I noticed that Toby had a small, raised bump on his chin.* It went away, but now there is another one.* It doesn't seem to be causing any pain when I touch it, but I would like to know if anyone has seen this before, and if I should make an appointment with the vet.

    Thanks!

    Very common in younger dogs.* They will eventually outgrow it.* Helps to feed out of a stainless steel dish, not plastic because plastic harbors bacteria easier. My dog has never needed a vet for juvenile acne.

    Agree. My breeder was really adament about only feeding out of stainless steel or food-safe ceramic -- obviously, same thing goes for water bowl, too.

    Some people do wash them with an antibacterial soap but that can be a pain if the dog is not cooperative. I just left them alone and they went away.
