Hi, my dog has been having these pimples on his neck. They look like pimples but there is nothing to squeeze out. Some of them form this cluster of pimples that looks like one big swollen pimple. First we thought he might be having some allergies. He has had them for couple of months now but they are slowly getting better. Some guy in dog park told me that could be some kind of tumor that is harmless they just come and go. Do you know anything about this kind of tumor an what it is called? My dog just turned one and is weimaraner breed and they tend to have skin problems. My friends weimaraners had the same thing around one year of age and they said it is nothing to worry about. Thank you

I would suggest you take your dog to the vet for a check up let them decide whats going on. after all people arent always right and you dont want to be kicking yourself later for not going

Our dogs get what appear to be pimples from timne to time as well. The people we got them from said they are probably heat bumps and to just leave them be and they will go away. They were right. I dont know if this is your situation or not but it is another angle to think about.

I would definitely take your dog to the vet for an expert opinion. It sounds like he could have acne! Yes, it is possible for our furbabies to have it!!! If left untreated, it could get worse. Please let us know how you make out. Good luck!
