Is this a pimple?

Can dogs even have pimples? Not sure what it is, or how long it's been there. It didn't seem to bother her when I poked at it. It's almost like the rest of the hair follicles where her whiskers are, but much bigger.

biz also has/had those.

no idea what they are. one got kind of infected, and i had to clean him up on a daily basis. using non scented baby wipes.
after a while, they got better/went away. he wasn't too happy with me cleaning his snout, but he's not paying the vet bills. :P

well, not only did i clean his face when one got infected, i also would clean the ones that looked like what you have.

so i'm guessing possible allergic reaction?????
regardless, i'd go pick up some unscented baby wipes and clean his snout just to be on the safe side.

She did go into her first heat a few days ago, I wonder if it could be related?

My dog had one of these on her nose when she got dog warts, went away on its own like the vet said. After seeing it on her nose found more on ger mouth so you should look at your dogs mouth and gums to check

No spots anywhere else. I'll keep an eye on this and see how it goes. So far, it doesn't seem to bug her when I poke at it, but it hasn't changed at all either in the last few days.

Gunner had one on his bottom chin, under his mouth area. Looked like an infected hair follicle or pimple.
I put some Neosporin on it and kept an eye on it. It went away within a few days.
