Causes of acne in dogs
Acne is usually caused by trauma to the mouth or chin that leads to irritation of the hair follicles. Short-haired dogs like boxers, bulldogs, and Great Danes are most prone to getting acne.
Like in humans, acne can also be caused by clogged pores. Just like we produce an oily substance called sebum that can clog our pores, so do our dogs. This is one of the main culprits of acne. This doesn’t mean that you need to take your pup with you to your next facial appointment - but that could be a lot of fun! Some groomers offer a blueberry facial that is designed with your furry friend in mind. The treatment is exfoliating and moisturizing and can help with tear stains as well. If you think your best friend might enjoy the extra pampering, go ahead and ask at your next grooming appointment.
Acne in dogs is not always believed to be caused by hormones but it does tend to affect puppies around 4-8 months old. Most puppies who get acne find that their faces are cleared up by the time they turn one year old. There are some dogs who will suffer from acne their whole lives but this seems to be the exception, not the rule.
Other causes of acne could be an allergic reaction or poor hygiene. Keep your pup clean and keep up with grooming appointments or baths at home. Make sure you’re regularly keeping your pup's bowls and toys nice and clean. Metal bowls especially should be washed and dried thoroughly on a regular basis or you might notice some acne along your pup’s mouth or chin.
How Can I Help My Pimply Pup?
More often than not, your average, run of the mill canine acne is easily treated with a topical product. Your veterinarian can point you in the right direction of what would be best for your dog. A lot of the products on the market to help with our own acne breakouts may be irritating to your dog's skin, so never use your own skin care product on your dog without first checking with your vet.
There are certain instances where your vet may want to treat your dog's pimples with something more than just a topical to dry out the pimples. If your pup's skin is appearing to be more inflamed, if there is scabbing on the skin, or if they are licking and chewing their fur off, your vet may want to prescribe additional medications. These may include shampoos, topical antibiotics, topical steroids, and even, if the case is severe enough, oral antibiotics.
Even though your at-home acne treatments may not be the best treatment protocol for your dog, there is one thing that holds true for all pimples, regardless of person or pooch: don't pop them! Popping pimples can cause more inflammation and trauma to the area, which can increase the likelihood of more pimples forming on your dog. If your dog is getting breakouts in a specific area more frequently and you can identify a cause, try to decrease your dog's exposure to it. For instance, if your dog is prone to break outs on his muzzle and you've already switched out their bowls for non-plastic, be on the lookout for behaviors such as scratching at the muzzle or rooting around in the dirt outside. Both of these activities can cause follicular trauma in addition to introducing dirt to your dog's follicles.
Pimples can be a headache for anyone, but your dog's pimples don't have to be. If your pup is breaking out, contact your vet to help get your dog's skin looking clean and clear in no time.
Why You Get Acne, But Your Pets Don't
Next time your skin breaks out, blame the luscious locks of our hairy evolutionary cousins. RomarioIen/Shutterstock

Being a human is a pretty sweet deal on the whole. Then again, we do have our own unique problems to deal with: bills, existential crises, and acne. But why do humans have it so bad when it comes to acne, while most other animals appear to get off scot-free? Like many things, you can blame your evolutionary past.
Acne, scientifically known as Acne vulgaris , occurs when hair follicles become clogged up with skin oils and dead skin cells. Those characteristic red bumps emerge because the dermal layer of skin has become irritated and inflamed, often as a response to Propionibacterium acnes , a bacteria that usually live peacefully on our outer skin and deep in our pores.
Despite what many assume, cleanliness has relatively little to do with acne, but it can be affected by factors like diet and genetics. It’s also one of the most common diseases in the world, although some groups of people (such as the Kitavan Islanders of Papua New Guinea) don’t seem to get acne at all. It usually arises in early puberty, namely because hormone changes cause the sebaceous glands in the skin to kick out more of an oily secretion known as sebum. Most mammals produce sebum as a way of lubricating and waterproofing their skin by creating a waxy coating. It can also help to protect your body against illness by acting as a sealed barrier to germs that might penetrate the skin.
Here’s where the problem lies. Humans have evolved to be considerably less hairy than our other evolutionary forebears. Nevertheless, our sebaceous glands continue to pump out a fair dollop of sebum on our skin. Without a thick covering of fur on our bodies to "soak it up", according to evolutionary theorists Stephen Kellet and Paul Gilbert, the sebum builds up, leaving our pores more prone to getting clogged and breaking out.
It's a similar problem faced by short-haired dogs and cats. Certain breeds are susceptible to pimples during their awkward-teen phase, most likely as a result of sebum buildup. Persian cats are especially susceptible to feline acne around their face and chins, where the fur is considerably shorter than the rest of the body. However, it's not nearly as prevalent as it is with us hairless humans.
Acne, they suggest, could therefore be a result of our relatively recent change from hair-covered hominid to naked, upright apes. However, this vestigial throwback continues to live in our DNA fairly quietly because it doesn’t reduce our ability to survive, reproduce, and pass on our genes.
So, next time your skin breaks out with some zits, blame the luscious locks of evolutionary cousins from millions of years ago and your overachieving sebaceous glands
