Default Has anyone's boxer pup had lumps like these before?

Hi! I've been trying to find a good forum to join for a bit now and this one looks great.

To the point. I have a 10.5 month old boxer puppy that has some 'wart' like lumps around her mouth. I've read that it is common that puppies can contract a virus causing warts and it can be pretty common. Now, reading what the warts should look like I'm not to sure if this is how I can describe them.
She has had the larger lumps for a few months now, doesn't seem to hurt or bother her. Although when she does chew on a hollow bone they will begin to bleed then scab. Still doesn't seem to hurt her when I apply pressure.

I've just noticed that a small one seems to be growing on her upper lip now, and I'm wondering if anyone has any home remedies on how to stop the spreading and help them eventually disappear.

I really don't want to have to go to the vet for them just to tell me to get some vitamin E or castrol oil if that's something I can do on my own.

Kind of looks like a bad case of puppy acne to me. My Riley got it bad like that. We didn't really do anything for it aside from keeping his face clean especially after meal times and we also started feeding him out of a stainless steel bowl. Eventually it went away on it's own. What kind of bowl do you feed your dog in?

I was going to say the same thing... looks like acne.

Here's a good thread on treatment and such;

welcome to the forum and I too was going to suggest treating for puppy acne; clean her face after meals and after drinking water using perhaps baby wipes as this will be gentle on her skin and use stainless steel bowls for her food and water.

Thank you so much everyone! I do have puppy wipes for her and I will keep her face nice and clean after meals and drinking.
I feed her out of an 'Becobowl' as I thought this would be the best. (I work in a holistic and natural pet store and have had great reviews on them)

The only thing I worry about with the stainless steel bowls is in my dog before had a black nose, and the steel discolored his nose to have a slight brown color and I've read this can be common. Anyone's thoughts?

The brown could of been food dried on did that ever happen it did to Rex just now I'm getting it back to Black with coconut oil to soften and anti-germ his nose!!

I also washed Rex face with an antibacterial soap when he had bad bad acne... At one point he needed antibiotics from it which was caused by plastic bowls... The shot cleared it ip ad since we keep his jowls clean and as bacteria free as we can!

I had no problems with stainless steel bowls. If you're uncomfortable using them, ceramic will work too.

Also clean the food and water bowls more frequently than you normally do, especially if you have plastic bowls. Sometimes it is caused by bacteria that grows in the bowls and irritates their skin.

I also think it looks more like acne than warts.
Warts would have more of a rough cauliflower look to them.

I agree, clean her face a couple times a day and use either stainless steel or ceramic bowls. Wash the bowls daily too.

Welcome to the forum , BTW
