Bump on chin


New Member
I need help. I know doberman can have skin issues. She has bumps on her chin. It started to bleed today. Her bowl is stainless steel water and food dish. Could this be from a toy or food. She is only 8 months old. I am going to make a vet apt. But I want to see if anyone has any ideas

No need for a vet appt really.

That is most likely chin acne from eating dog food. Both of mine had it- I just wipe their chin after they finished eating.

It may take a bit but it will go away if you keep their mouth/chin clean.

Use some chlorhexidine wipes to sterilize her chin after eating. Works great for chin acne and any other skin issues. That should clean it right up.

Yes it could also be from toys. Wash any rubber toys and any stuffed toys.
Yes clean the chin after eating with a mild soap. Put warm compress on the area 3-4x's a day.

Wash bowls every day.

Can put Calendula on the area.
It relieves pain and inflammation and its antimicrobial properties will also prevent infection.
