Puppy acne, rash, something else??

My pup, Nike, is now 4.5 months old and we started noticing these pimple-like dots on her inner thigh (mainly the right inner thigh). She’ll lick at it occasionally but other than that, it doesn’t seem to bother her. There has been new ones popping up and the old ones kinda scab. Some of them have the skin broken from her licking but it doesn’t smell foul nor are there oozing puss.

She’s currently eating Fromm Heartland Grain-Free kibble. She gets monthly nexgard and heartgard. She’s been to the vet with physical exams but the vet has never mentioned it at all.

I’m thinking it may be due to food or it could be from the heat (we’ve been having 90+ weather in California)? But she’s had these pimples since she was about 11 weeks old. She’s always been on grain-free but she was weaned on taste of the wild grain free and we fed her that for 1 week after we got her. We just noticed they’ve grown more this past week.

Another side note is that she smells a bit. Everyone we talk to says Dobermans shouldn’t have any odor but I think she smells like a normal dog lol. It’s not musky, sour, or bad but there is a smell.


Reaching out here to see if anyone has had experience with these. She has no other acne or pimples on her body. She had some on her forehead when she used a bridge for her ears but has since resolved since we removed the bridge.

Thanks for your time reading this! Included pictures of the pimples and also one of her adorable self

I’d take her to the vet. It could be a staph infection. It could be some kind of bug bite. It could be something else.

My pup had those when he was around 4-5 months old. I believe my vet gave us some kind of broad spectrum antibiotic and it cleared up after finishing the normal course (7 days I think?). I would head to the vet.

second the possibility of a staph infection which is pretty common. Time for a trip to the vet.

Just an update! We saw the vet and she said it was pyoderma. Nike had a course of antibiotics and it seemed to do the trick! Thanks everyone!
