Some Boxers do tend to get acne. Are you using plastic food/water bowls? Switching to ceramic or stainless steel might help.

Could be the canine papilloma virus - are they white? If so, I used pepermint oil on them (anti-viral) and they went down quick.

I agree, sounds like pimples or CPV! Of course my dogs have had BOTH! Neither are serious and tend to go away on their own! Pics?

Oakley had some of these.. I switched her bowls out to stainless (after seeing some similar posts on here) and they seem to have subsided.

Layla had pimples and we had stainless steel bowls...we had to make sure we were washing them almost daily and also when we switched her food they went away! She does get some occassionally when she has been digging in dirt

Mia has the same Reddish rash looking stuff on her chin as Gritty's Picture




except if Mia has black upper lips ( see avatar picture <------- ) and they appear like a Pimple

she is always scrathing her chin with her hide paws....I bath her in Oatmeal shampoo....no Fleas or Ticks as well...

Mia uses Stainless Steel bowls and we wash them after every meal.....She is eating Blue Buffalo Chicken Can and Dry foods......
