I really don't have the answer to your question, but I would like to mention that other diseases (in their early stages) can mimic acne and, if you haven't already, you should consult your veterinarian to make sure you have the correct diagnosis. Many young dogs outgrow acne, but you stated that you have been "fighting with [your dog's] pimples...forever", so maybe there is more to it. Besides, in stubborn cases, you'll probably need to get a prescription antibacterial wash or drug.

I don't have a dog, but I assume what I know about cats can also be applied to dogs. If you feed your dog in a PLASTIC bowl, you should replace it with stainless steel.

hi, they could be pusules, which resemble zits but are actually a bacteria infection that antibiotics would clear up. also change water and food dishes, plastic can cause a reaction. make sure you use stainless steel or ceramic. if you do find that they are zits you can buy the strydex pads that people use and wipe them once daily

good luck
