Bleeding and Bumpy Chin

Guys, my lil girl has been experiencing some skin issues the last couple months. I first noticed that her chin had little bumps on it and then it grew to what the pic shows. Now it looks infected, and also to note, she has had these little bumbs on her neck, the seem to be under the skin. Is this just a Doby thing? I read that they have skin issues but she gets the best foods, I suppliment with the omega 3's and fish oils so I'm a day away from going to the vet. If you can help, please send email tomendozaron67@yahoo.com Thanks

Does look infected. I'd go ahead and get a round of antibiotics at the vet. Wipe the chin down with acne pads such as stridex or witch hazel on a cottonball. You can break open those bumps and likely have gunk or puss in them. I'd run alcohol over it, just dab it. Also clean your food bowl after each meal, only use a stainless steel bowl.
Not sure on the bumps on the neck without more of a description. Have your vet take a look at them while your there.

My 1977 dobe had similar pimples on her chin (almost like a mini boil)...but dry food was pretty bad, decades ago.

^^^^ I only feed 4-5 star rated kibble now, last 2 dobes...and acne, no longer...I use holistic/organic brands.

Wellness Super5Mix Adult Health Large Breed Formula Dry Dog Food w/ 2tbl of Vanilla yogurt and Excel Intense Shield Skin and Coat supplements. She has had teh Omega Alaskan fish oils supplements as well and I go by the directions which is usually about 2-3 tbls once a day. She eats from a plastic bowl that is designed to slow eating because she gulps her food. It has been a very good bowl and I clean it completely after her meal with hot water. She eats once a day, mid morning.

Lexi will get those if I don't wipe her chin off after every meal. I use babywipes with aloe. LindaH had suggested Stridex pad in an earlier post (I use the aloe ones) and it has really eliminated the bumps. I would get to the vet to get it under control with a round of antibiotics, like suggested. I feed Acana with a TB spoon of pumpkin and she gets it all over her chin. I clean her bowl after every meal also.

Age??? What proteins are in the food? If the bumps are under the skin, tho, I really don't know what it could be unless a reaction to her collar.

You need to feed the plain yogurt as the flavored has sugar. Greek is better as it has 5 probiotics as compared to just 2 in regular yogurt.

You will need to go to a stainless steel bowl or I have luck with glass baking dish. Plastic won't do when dogs have the chin problems
I cleaned Parker's chin with a damp washcloth and used Stridex pads after every meal till he healed completely. Also washed the baking dish after every meal. I use a baking dish so the kibble spreads out and he can't grab huge mouthfuls.

Fish Oils strip the VitE - you need to always supplement Fish Oils with VitE. My internist had me give Yoda (70lb) 450IU of Vit E with his Salmon Oil.

I actually had a Siberian Husky with a similar problem. First her chin, and then her nose. She began scratching until they would bleed. It turned out she had food allergies. She had to go on a strict diet. Maybe ask your vet about allergies.

Looks a little like dog acne to me Kratos gets this before we switched to metal bowls do you clean the bowls regularly after they eat and what kind of toys is she using some toys can give this irritable look if chewed too much (plastic toys like nyla bone etc.)

My boy Gino got similar bumps on his chin. He is on raw. He eats from a ceramic bowl and I wash it after each meal. Also he gets fish oil.

My vet prescribed antibiotics but I am not fun of medications.
I clean his chin with Pyoben shampoo and apply Silver gel every second morning. When I don't use the shampoo I apply ache gel Benzak (3% benzyl peroxide).
I use black ointment from Nature Sunshine every evening.
What do you think about the treatment I use?

It's getting better... but I am not sure I can keep it under control without antibiotics treatment.

His sister Asha has clean chin. Go figure...

Use glass or stainless steel bowls--the plastic is relatively porous and even if washed immediately after eating with soap and hot water can cause problems because of bacteria on the surface.

If the dog gulps food and you feel obliged to slow her down find and buy a small baking sheet with a low edge that is small enough to go into the dish washer--put her food in that--she'll only be able to gulp up a small amount at a time.

Also if you said how old she was I missed it but it sound rather like a case of puppy staph (that cand cause bumps anywhere including the chin) I'd say that a vet visit was in order.

If the bumps on the chin continue to be a problem (they usually will clear up with treatment for puppy staph--antibiotics, medicated shampoos etc) and you can keep them clear up by changing the food bowl material and always cleaning her chin immediately after eating. I would NOT clean the chin with alcohol--it burns like the devil on raw areas. Stridex pad or any other cleanser aimed at controlling teen age acne work better and are much kinder to the skin.

Also you can keep toys clean by either running them through a dishwater (nyla bones and Kongs) or the washing machine (any sort of soft toy).

Good luck--for the record the vet clinic where I work inherited a cat who had stomatitis (a mouth disease which is very painful--treatment is generall full mouth extraction of all teeth--we had already done that and he was still having outbreaks of chin acne and sore gums) Religious cleaning of his chin after eating helped the chin acne but switching him to a hypoallergenic food (totally hydrolized for both animal and vegitable proteins) stopped all of the problems with both his gums and the acne on his chin. So if your vet suspects allergies you might try switching to a hypoallergenic food (not, by the way, just a limited ingredient type but something like Royal Canin HA, Hills Ultra ZD or Purina's HA--these are totally hydrolized foods and will stop food allergy reactions in their tracks.

Good luck.

hope that chin clears up soon.

I have the same problem with my 2 yr old male. Additionally, he also has developed an infection on one of his ankles. It looks much worse than his chin. Please see attached pic.

After countless consultations with vets, dermatologists, naturopaths, homeopaths, wizards, sorcerers, voodoo practitioners and my favorite of all, the canine-health-and-psychology-expert-next-door, my beloved pet remains ill with this "condition".

As a last resort, I'm posting here hoping that someone will have a definitive answer as to what this thing is and how to cure it. If you have experienced something like this with your own dog and know precisely what to do about it, PLEASE HELP!

So far all the "experts" I've had the pleasure of hearing from have been ever so quick to offer their 2 cents on this subject. Please understand that I'm not looking for additional cents. I am hoping to hit the jackpot here. Thank you in advance.

OP, does she suck? (Blankets, I mean.)

My girl occasionally has this issue, when she's had a particularly sucky day. All that moisture=bacterial skin infection.

The stridex pads work great--I use the ones for sensitive skin as I find them less drying for her. Also, do make sure you supplement with Vit E, too, with your fish oil.

I fought this same problem with my girl Lily.
She had a bad case of this for years.
I think food plays a big part. She has not had it in years....after switching food.
Also....i used to take a fine needle, and pop the infections. Press out all the infection and bacteria. Clean with dish detergent and warm water with cotton ball. DRY with paper towel. And put a tiny bit of antibiotic cream on. Not too much as you want it to dry out.
Hopefully, you'll get rid of it with cleaning and changing food.

As a last resort, I'm posting here hoping that someone will have a definitive answer as to what this thing is and how to cure it. If you have experienced something like this with your own dog and know precisely what to do about it, PLEASE HELP!

So far all the "experts" I've had the pleasure of hearing from have been ever so quick to offer their 2 cents on this subject. Please understand that I'm not looking for additional cents. I am hoping to hit the jackpot here. Thank you in advance.
My doberman suffered Demodex. She sucked her itchy toes and lost hairs.
It took a few months to finalize diagnosis. My vet apologized us, surely to my dog, a lot.
I'm not in the medical field so I cannot say that your dog has also Demodex. Have you asked him about Demodex?

Bleeding and Bumpy Chin

Loki has something similar! He is about 9 months now. I have him on Now! puppy large breed food (Canadian), stainless steel bowls, and I wash his face (water) and bowls after every meal. I am ready to go to the vet soon!

Bleeding and Bumpy Chin

Actually the picture of Loki's bumpy chin above is actually doing much better now... It goes through phases, but at one point his whole chin was a hard bump of shiny skin stretched over a massive pus-ey/acne/cyst. If you squeezed it the whole thing would ooze from different holes, and little hairs that had become ingrown would shoot out of the skin (which would in turn help it drain). Gross, but fascinating.
