No one wants to be covered in pimples, not even your dog. At the first sign of dog acne, it’s so important to take the right steps to clear it up. Dog acne, chin pyoderma, puppy dermatitis, muzzle folliculitis, no matter what you call it, it’s all the same thing—pup pimples!
Outbreaks are most commonly found on dog chins, muzzles, and lips, but can also show up around private parts too. Mild acne outbreaks in dogs are not usually painful, but more serious cases can cause a great deal of discomfort and agitation.
What causes dog acne?
Causes of dog acne include genetic predispositions, hormones, as well as trauma/stress. Bulldogs and other breeds with wrinkly skin are more prone to acne because bacteria become trapped between skin folds, the perfect environment for pimples to bloom.
What researchers and veterinarians know about dog acne is that it is fairly similar to the zits on teenage faces around the world. It even impacts most dogs at the same stage of life; in dog years that’s around 5 to 8 months old. Acne typically clears up after dogs turn 1.
Generally, pimples originate as blackheads or raised areas on hair follicles that become infected with multiplying bacteria and result in pus-filled white heads. Dog acne doesn’t always look like your classic pimple outbreak, so how do you know if that’s what you see on your dog?
Symptoms of dog acne include:
- Red bumps
- Pus-filled pimples
- Redness, inflammation,
- Your dog is rubbing on carpet, itching or scratching
You want to treat your dog’s acne as soon as possible, especially if they react with pain when you touch the area, or have scars from previous outbreaks.
