    Default Acne

    I've had bulldogs for quite a few years but never had to deal with acne before. I've been using several products for acne, washing their metal bowls after meals and doing anything I can think of to allieviate the situation. If anyone has something that worked particularly well I'd really appreciate it!

    Sorry, I can't help with the acne but I can say

    Someone will be along soon with the experience you are looking for.

    My previous bully had chin acne bigtime, we eventually switched from plastic to metal and finally to ceramic. Not sure if it was the cure all, we were washing her face every 3 days with a mediated shampoo. After switching it never came back

    Miila tends to have it also but for her she scratches her chin up a lot so it is more red than actual acne. I know Cutty got it when he was young. Kinda dissappeared eventually, wether it be food or what I dunno. With Miila I use the mal a ket wipes from amazon and they clear up fast.

    Douxo Chlorhexidine 3% PS Pads (30 Count) pads are the best...copy and paste that into amazon...price is right and they really work.

    Uni is a year old now an she has had bad acne for a few months. I washed it twice a day and clean her bowls once a day but this did nothing, I asked the vet about it and the first thing we did was ash it with a peroxide shampoo we got for demodex, it's supposed to dry it out. It did help but was hard to use . I would have to do it during a bath to make sure I rinsed it well enough. Plus the acne as still there, the shampoo would help for about two days they the acne would get red and sore looking again. So next time at the vet office I asked again and she gave me Pyoben gel. Same active ingredient but it is a cream.. Works great, I applied it every day for a week, it went away but still cam back after I stopped using it so know I use it about every other day. It does work but it was pretty pricey! 20$ for a small bottle. I really hope after some time I wont have to apply it so often.
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    erhm....lol.

    He's 5 and gets them often (predisposed and all that) so I doubt they will just disappear, but if they do, Mr. Daniels, we'll unscrew a bottle of what you have as your name here and celebrate.

    What's bad is he rubs his chin on my pretty carpet to bust them...yes...he does. So it would be lovely for that NOT TO HAPPEN. :p
