Bumps Under Dobies Mouth-Plastic toys, bowl, etc. Culprit
Both my Dobermans one blue(older, now 12), the other 1 1/2 experienced these bumps. My older dogs went away years ago, but now my younger one is experiencing these ugly bumps. One vet said that it was puppy acne (was not). Another younger vet told me it was PLASTIC ALLERGY-- The younger vet who I thought didn't know what she was talking about was correct.
After she gave me this diagnosis I continued to let my dog play with
PLASTIC TOYS, ETC. -- I applied creams, washed with astringent (sea breeze)- but still let Laila play with the plastic finally -- I took away the plastic toys, KONGS included. My dog loves to chew up toys and swallow but loved the KONG (so DID I because it gave her a diversion AND IS DURABLE). But I returned the toys to the PetStore and told them she was allergic -- Laila looked for that toy(KONG) for a while -- Now it has been a couple of weeks and the bumps are clearing up - I wipe her chin with the astringent and use Peroxide and an antifungal shampoo to spot wash and kept the plastic away from her (I MADE TOYS OUT OF OLD JEAN MATERIAL). The bumps are drying up and clearing away. I KNOW IT WAS THE PLASTIC and not something that dogs or dobies just get. TAKE AWAY THE PLASTICS.
