The pink bumps on your dog's jowls could be the result of numerous illnesses. However, one of the most common problems associated with these symptoms is a condition known as lip fold pyoderma - which is a very stubborn condition, but not that serious.

Without seeing these pink bumps myself, however, it is very difficult to establish exactly what is causing them.

I would advise you to take your dog to the vet, so that it can be properly checked out. A vet will be able to give your dog a detailed and thorough examination.

Once this has been completed, and a diagnosis has been made, then treatment can begin right away.

  • They could be the result of lip fold pyoderma. If this is the case, then antibiotics will be prescribed.
  • They may also be caused by an infection or allergy.
  • I would advise you to take your dog to a vet, anyway.
