Default Dog acne? switched dog food

My 2 1/2 year old gsd has started getting what i think is dog acne. We got him when he was about 1 year old and we were feeding him royal canin gsd formula and he did not have any dog acne. We have since switched him over to wellness core large breed formula about a month in a half ago and since then he has had a few bumps around his snout and under his mouth. Could this be from the dog food maybe a allergic reaction or is it just normal?

my guess would be allergic reaction. go back back to old food and see if this reaction stops.

my guy had a bump like that when he was much younger. it was a small skin infection that needed antibiotics. I don't think it's dog acne

edit - just googled dog acne and it does look alot like that...so you might be right. I would take him to a vet for a professional opinion. and like the person before me I'm far from an expert

Well the only problem with going back to royal canin is they switched there ingredients. I wanted to get a better dog food for him anyways the only thing i can think is switch the food again to another brand. And the bumps will go away within a few days so thats why i think its acne.

what other signs of an allergic reaction would you be able to see if he was allergic to the dog food

I don't think this is food related, so the switch is not a big deal. YARD, what is going on outside during play when your not around. Digging, nesting, thorn bushes, bee sting ect.. ??

Something else, should not be a big deal, they heal up and go away. It does not look like fungus. I have never heard of acne on animals and I don't know it all. Tell them/us activity's. One dog I had - had a bump like that on his front upper gum line. It went away after my friend played with him with a toy and the bump was disturbed, by the toy. Wierd story.. Google: dog mouth sores, it's close enough..

The yard has not changed nor has he done anything different back there. He has pretty much the same routine and goes all the same places. The reason i mentioned the food change is thats the only thing that has changed for him and thats when he started getting a few bumps under his mouth also. And he has had worse gas then he used to . The only other thing is treats which he doesn't get a lot of.
