Thread: Puppy Pimple???

  1. #1

    Default Puppy Pimple???

    Was just giving Poppy a tummy rub and noticed a little white head...only about the size of one of her nipples...is this normal?

    What could it be/mean?

    *yes...I'm a worry wart...I can't help it*

    Our camera bat is dead! We've been happy snapping too much of her! Lol!

    But it looks just like a little white head...not red around it...not annoying her...

    O - about as big as that letter "o"

    Yep, they get "puppy pimples". It's pretty normal. It's been a while since I dealt with this, so either Google or someone will pop on soon to give you a remedy.

    Thanks GSD. I googled and couldnt find much. Some talked about anti-bac creams/sprays.

    I think google can be your worst enemy sometimes.

    Do you think I need to call my vet tomorrow?

    nope...not if there is only one and it isn't swollen and red. Just leave it and keep an eye on it

    I'd never had any experience with them until we got Tara. Poor Tara. She didn't just get "puppy pimples". She got ... what the vet described as "puppy boils". All red really big pustules, really weepy with puss.

    Clea is most probably right. It will just be the odd one that you don't have to fuss with. It's just a puppy thing as I understand it.

    Thanks GSD. Google spoke like they did get lots of "pimples" and that it was normal but anti-biotics were used. So I guess since Poppy only has one so far theres no need to stress. Will keep an eye on it though incase she gets more!
