PostSubject: I think my dogs got Acne!!   Sat Nov 06, 2010 6:54 am

Hi...My 7 mth old dog has come out in spots all along the upper and lower side of his muzzle over the last 2 days, really strange and they don't seem to bother him at all.
Has any one else come across this before?
I took him to the vet yesterday who said it could be an allergy and gave him an injection of antibiotics and some stuff that looks like Iodine to dab on them. Trouble is the dog goes absolutly nuts when I dab this stuff on (must sting!) and rubs his face all over the ground making it bleed trying to get it off.
Any suggestions?

you can be so funny sometimes, that title is hilarious. seriously you have done the right thing taking the dog to the vets. it could be a number of things already discussed with the vet. allergies, as its only in the last few days, have you been working with any chemicals such as varnish, paint ect on your ongoing building projects . c

(keep observing to see if you spot any changes because zits important and dont make any rash decisions. ).

seriously, hope you get this sorted as the dog is clearly distressed by this condition. let us know if the treatment works. g

Reminds me of the Wooden Tops and Spot the Dog

Now the serious bit. Our old dog OBI 1 got Fox mainge which we thought was acne. But our local pet shop suggested that we put Tetrea cream and Cold Tar Cream on to the infected areas g. It worked as after a few days his hair started to grow back although very slowly.

Poor dog hope it gets over this soon.

I'm a bit late in replying and hope the dog's spots have gone away by now. But if not it could be mange or ringworm which spreads easily (and to other animals and humans so wear gloves). Or as your vet said an allergy, which will be harder to treat unless they can do more tests to determine what the dog is allergic to.

Yes, it was ringworm and yes, it does spread easily...because guess who got it? ME!!
After 3 weeks of tablets and creams mine has all cleared up (Thankfully) and the dogs is almost all gone, he still can't mix with other animals until it's completely cleared up, probably another week or so.
Not very pleasant for both the dog and me!!

Glad to hear you found out the answer to it, but not a nice thing.
Make me feel itchy thinking about it. Lets hope it will all be gone for Christmas for you. :Hair:
