Hi Ellanor! Rose had a bump on her upper eyelid that looked like acne but it turned out it was a cyst from a blocked tear duct . We just had it removed. Her bump woulnd't bust and when the vet tried to drain fluid from it nothing came out so maybe yours is something different. Either way I would have it checked out!

Rose's furbrother Leo did have some issues with acne as a puppy but most of his breakouts were on his chin and cheek area so we just used tea tree oil or clearasil wipes and that always took care of them. Also just wanted to mention that using plastic bowls can cause flare ups with acne so if you use plastic you may want to consider ceramic or metal.

Hey Ellanore. Buster and Buddy gets these little bumps that look like acne around their faces also. Our doggie doctor says that they are from dust. Buster and Buddy's human mom and dad live in the middle of a peanut field and several pecan trees are in their yard. The doggie doctor also says that they have allergies and he gives them a shot either once a month or once every couple of months depending on how bad it gets. Hope you figure out what your bumps are from.

I have acne too on my little lips! My mommy took me to the vet and the vet said that they were atually little spots from my allergies. When I take my allergy medicine I don't have any bumps at all. I have taken Benadryl and Tavist-D, but always check with your vet first! Hope you feel better soon!blue dog

Our Stella has breakouts when she eats something she's allergic to. We noticed that the breakouts went away when we switched her to a grain-free food (Wellness CORE). Hope that helps.

I use listerine on my pugs. Put a little on a cotton ball and dabbe the pimple with it.
