Schnauzer Bumps

“Schnauzer bumps” or schnauzer comedone syndrone, is a condition affecting schnauzers that produces pus filled bumps which are most often located on the back of the dog. It is an inherited condition present throughout the dog’s life and there is no cure. However, there are some things that have provided relief to dogs with this problem.

  1. Use a dandruff shampoo, such as Selsun Blue, or one called SeboRx, available from your vet.
  2. Keep your dog in a stripped coat or clippered very short.
  3. Use vitamin E daily.
  4. Bathe your dog on a regular basis.
  5. If allergy related, try changing food.

I have found that sunshine can really improve this problem. It seems to be much relieved in the summer.
