infected whiskers?

Postby weesha » Mon Dec 13, 2010 1:35 pm

Hello.
I recently noticed something strange on myah's snout. She is approximately a year and half old. Red nosed apbt. She has the simple like bumps at the hair follical by her whiskers. One of them swelled up and popped. Is this just acne, or could it be something more serious that I should have my vet look at?

Vet! At least that's what I vote.

I wonder if it could be canine acne? http://www.petplace.com/dogs/acne-in-dogs/page1.aspx

I second the vet recommendation, peace of mind is worth the cost.

it could also be something as simple as if he was playing with another dog and the whisker got partially pulled out it could have gotten infected like that. But, I'd try a warm compress a couple of times a day if you can do it. It might help get the infection out.
