    I use stainless steel bowls washed with soap and hot water after every meal. I always give my dogs a face/chin wipe with a clean damp wash cloth after every meal. They've never had any kind of chin rash or sores. A few puppy fight scratches, but nothing else.

    @Sunnygirl

    I wash his food bowl prior to every meal and his water bowl x1/day. I wipe his face with a damp cloth after each drink of water while I'm at home.

    Matter a fact, since Moglee is still 9 months, should I still keep him on "pup" food or graduate him to adult food? He was 50lbs as of the 10th of this month.

    UPDATE:

    Brought moglee to the vet.

    DX: bacterial infection on his chin (oral Keflex x2/daily)
    Yeast infection of his ears (Otobiotic x2/daily)
    inflammation of the chin secondary to bacterial chin infection (Rimadyl x2/daily)

    It's cleared up a good amount and the hair as continued to grow since this past Wednesday when I first took away all his toys.

    UPDATE 2/1/13:

    He's been on his Cephelexin 500mg PO BID for 13 days now and I was expecting a much more dramatic response. I've kept him off check toys, excessively cleaned his face and both food bowls. This is the result. Much better than the initial post, but not what I was expecting for this long of duration.

    My male bullmastiff used to have the same acne and ear problem. We spent a fortune on antibiotics, ear drops and cleanings, a steroid powder for his ears (that I referred to as powdered gold because of the cost) and vet bills. It was his food. There are so many "bad" foods out there for these guys. Steer clear of any food containing corn, wheat, or soy. These filler ingredients are known allergens that pet food companies add to bulk up the bag. You think you're getting a bargain buying a large bag for next to nothing, but you have to feed more to give your dog any nutritional value at all. You'll notice when you feed a good quality food that you don't have to feed quite so much because you aren't feeding junk that your dog won't digest. We've been feeding Life's Abundance for several years because of allergies our dogs had and haven't had a problem. We'll see how Mabel does on it. So far, after a week, she's OK, but we're watching her closely. My daughter's dog is allergic to most foods, including ours and feeds Blue Basics, which is where I'll go if Mabel develops problems on Life's Abundance.

    There is a good video on my website about selecting a good food and what to look for on the pet food labels. It's obviously geared toward our food, but as long as it helps you find a good food for your dog--no matter where you decide to get it, I recommend the video. http://www.petsnaturalchoice.net Please understand that I'm not trying to sell you food! I think that the video (which is available under the dog food tab) helps us learn to read labels, which is the best thing you can do to help you choose a quality food. You'd be amazed and appalled at what the big companies (and even some small ones) put in their products and where they get their ingredients. You'd be even more shocked at how little nutritional training our veterinarians get! We owe it to our dogs to do our homework.
