I've got Schnauzer bumps from time to time and a sensitive tummy too. Daddy doesn't let me have anything with corn in it. Corn isn't good for us doggies.

Daddy treats those darn bumps with a special shampoo he got from the doctors office.

Woof! dog

I had two past miniture schnauzers that were both diabetics and Bacchus was for 1 yr and Sasha was for 5 yrs! And I'm hoping that I never get to that point!

I have schnauzer bumps too but my vet prescribed an allergy medicine that you can get over the counter at Target just the cheap brand of Claritin and now they are all gone. Give it a try the doctor just said it was allergies from the grass and other things in the air. It’s just that schnauzers skins more sensitive supposedly then other breeds so that’s why they show up more according to what the vet told me.

My minature schanuzer weighs 30 pounds. Apparently I made a lot of mistakes in the 3 years I've had her. I've cut back on her food and I give her diet dog food. 4 days a week I walk her twice a day and two days I walk her once a day. It seems that no matter what I do she is not loosing the weight. She waits until 11 or 12 at night to eat and recently I began taking her bowl up if she doesn't eat before 9.

Any suggestions on what to do. I do give her treats but I see now I need to stop.

I am a miniature schnauzer and I am blind and suffer from diabetes. I became blind roughly around the same time I was diagnosed with diabetes, so I do not know if they are related or are complete different things. I also have a slight case of schnauzer bumps as well. Schnauzers seem to have a lot of health issues!

If Claritin helped, it might not have been Schnauzer bumps at all. Just an allergic reaction. Though it may be possible for an allergic reaction to trigger Schnauzer bumps.

One way to tell is that Schnauzer bumps usually appear on the back. See www.Schnauzer-Bumps.info
