    Yup changed our food and the chin completely cleared up. It was to the point the acne would pop and start bleeding. Totally went away with new food

    I would suggest looking into a different food possibly...What are you currently feeding? Brutus had very bad chin acne and we changed a couple things. We started cleaning his bowl alot more b/c he is a big drooler, we switched foods, we used noxema pads 2x a day and applied animax creme 2x a day it cleared up within 1 week It was bloody and very red before it stopped. Now we get them every so often if I am bad at cleaning

    I use malacetic otic on a makeup bad for Lola's and if you cant find that witch hazel works! Also make sure you are using stainless steel bowls!

    Yes we all deal with it as you can see! Changed over to a steel bowl, I use a hanging water bottle instead of a bowl so no drippy drool all over, clean his face every day, and when you bathe them make sure you scrub the chin. I do all this and its clearing up nicely. They were all fat and gross. lol
    The two loves of my life fart and snore like crazy....what does that say about me??? ;D

    Bea has this as a pup. I even got Stridex pads once -- and still have them in the Bulldog basket. They went away after I got diligent with feeding in stainless steel bowls (and washing after each use) and wiping "gravy face" after meals. This is just a part of the routine facial cleaning now. No acne.

    Agree with all of the above! It's usually caused by bacteria, so taking the above steps will help in your battle. Good luck!

    Just to update and answer some questions; they were fed raw but she has some horrible allergies to the IL grass here so have been eating Fromm Beef Fritatta, I do clean with witch hazel at night and sometimes mornings as part of her routine- i also clean her face, wipe her paws or soak them in ACV, her rope, and her girlie parts, I am interested in the hanging bottle so i will be looking into that now, I wash the bowls after every meal in the dish washer and the water bowl usually goes in at night while were sleeping and then I just pull it out in the AM while they are eating breakfast. I have been giving coconut oil and Mac is now "addicted" to it, seriously, I ran out for his breakfast yesterday and he just didn't eat. I could here his belly rumbling all day! His coat has always been lovely but now Cleo's is awesome! Sooooooo soft to pet and a couple of flank spots that were thin are all filled in. I've made a vet appt for next week to get antibiotics to clear it up and then will maintain it hopefully. Thank you!!

    I'd love to see what the hanging bottle looks like, is it just a gerbil-type one?

    My guy does much better with filtered water, than regular tap water. I suggest giving that a try first before switching foods, if there are no other issues.

    Hey there,
    I also use the hanging water bottle, and it was what finally cleared up Rook's acne. He was already on Fromm Beef Fritatta and filtered water from stainless steel bowls that were constantly being washed. I was following him around 24/7 drying off his chin and applying various ointments. But the water bottle really helps because his chin stays much drier... and he also loves licking things so he loves that he can lick something and drink water at the same time.
    I think I posted these on another thread, but here is our set up:
