    Default Chin

    I noticed a part of my bulldogs chin is red, a little puffy and almost looks like a cluster of small zits. I am not sure if he just gets this from laying on his chin but I was wondering what I could use to reduce the swelling, he doesn't seem like it bothers him but it looks painful to me!

    it is probably bully acne. Watson has been dealing with it. I just try to keep it clean and dry. Wipe his face after meals and drinking water. Stridex pads made it worse i think.

    @ChanelnBrutus is dealing with the same. maybe she can give you some advice

    Also do you use stainless steal bowls???? If not might want to get some. Bullies can have allergies to the other bowls!

    Wilson gets these on occasion. I just wash and dry and then apply a very thin layer of Desitin, Neosporin or even Vaseline. Make sure you keep the water bowl clean because I know my Wilson totally slobbers all the water bowls. Bacteria builds up very quickly in a contaminated water bowl.

    Yes we are still dealing with it! Its gotten much better as its not raised any longer. Brutus is a drooler when drinking, playing or sleeping. We have to contstanly keep his mouth dry and clean. I started using Noxema pads. I have allways used stainless steel for him to drink and eat and now clean his face 4x a day. Only advice is keep it cllean and dry and use noxema (def didnt spelll that right)

    Our bully's got bad enough that I took to the vet and he was put on a strong antibiotic for 21 days. He'd never had such a large area of it before. It was huge, like 1/2 of his chin, like they had merged together, and the vet said it was probably full of pus. It's been almost a month now and It's almost gone but you can still see where it was. That was with wiping after drinking, malaket wipes, and clean stainless bowls. I think sometimes they just get deep and bad. I'd take to the vet if it doesn't clear up or look better in a week or so.

    Bea used to get zits - Bo never has. Once I started using stainless steel bowls, washed in soapy, hot water and rinsed after each meal, they went away. The water bowl gets turned (emptied, rinsed, filled) a few times a day too and washed with hot, soapy water and rinsed well at least once a day.

    Great advice already but I would get some malaket wipes. Cutty had some random ones last month out of nowhere that were icky. Cleaned them with 1 wipe, it was almost gone by nighttime. Have heard the stridex works similarly but havent tried. I know the malaket works tho.

    I agree with all the above, use stainless steel bowls and wipe the chin after drinking.
