    What could this be?

    I noticed this bump on Margie's face the other day and it seems like today it's gotten bigger. Anyone ever see something like this on your pups face?
    I have no idea what it could be?

    My Frenchie who is 2 1/2 got a similar bump on her neck in early July. The vet aspirated it and had it analyzed . She took antibiotics for three weeks and finally it's receding. It may be a good idea to have a vet look at it just to be safe .

    Re: What could this be?

    Yes because I noticed she has one more on the other side of her face right at her on her lower lip. She is only 12 weeks old so not sure what it could be, but we will get it checked out soon if they don't go away.
    Anyone else ever see these on their frenchies face?

    Looks like what we call puppy acne. Wouldn't hurt to take her to a vet. I'm sure it's nothing serious

    I'm thinking puppy acne too, could also be an ingrown hair.

    Puppy acne! ha to funny. Only spots she has them are on her lips, on in each corner of her mouth. Look identical and same size.

    She is getting boarded by our breeder next weekend which is also her vet so I will mention it when we bring her there. It's not bothering her or anything I just noticed them, and had never seen anything like that before on my other mixed breed dogs.

    Re: What could this be?

    Bernie gets those around his mouth and chin. It's acne. If you keep her face nice and clean throughout the day - especially after meals, she hopefully won't get them as much. I pop a little Sudocrem on Bernies when they do appear to dry them up. They go within a couple days.

    Cleaning her face is something I don't do after meals, but I can start. She usually licks her bowl clean and then her face but apparently not good enough

    What is a good cleaning solution I should use on her face? I have pet wipes but I don't know how clean they actually get her.

    Re: What could this be?

    What type of bowl are you feeding her from? Stainless steel is the bets. Some plastic bowls will cause this. I would just clean her mouth after every meal.

    Re: What could this be?

    It's a stainless steel lined bowl. I found 3 more around her mouth this morning?
    I guess if anyone has a good cleaning solution to use to prevent acne bumps I'd love a recommendation
    Will she grow out of this, is this just a puppy phase thing?
