what could these white spots be?

I have noticed a few little white spots on Leo in the past couple of days. One on his nose, on his butt as well as under his chin. They don't seem to be itchy. Does anyone know what these could be? Maybe acne?

Thanks!

The ones on the chin are most likely dog acne. Normally caused from eating out of plastic or ceramic bowls (stainless steal is recommended). But can be from just a dirty chin.

I am going through some dog acne right now with my boy, I feed out of stainless steal bowls, but this was a small outbreak (2 bumps) so I am cleaning his chin after he eats and trying to keep it dry.

As for the ones on his butt I have no idea

I definately think thats acne on the chin, the butt one, with my yucky connection its hard to tell, but my girl gets ingrown hairs around her tail and back legs and they do get infected. Not too often, but they look fairly similar.

He is eating out of a stainless steel but it may be that his chin was dirty. I'll have to clean it more often. Thanks for the reply!

More important than feeding out of a stainless steel bowl is keeping the bowl clean, so the dogs chin isnt brushing against a bacteria laden surface.
