Just curious – does anyone else's Basenji seem prone to blackheads and whiteheads?
I've noticed now that Bowpi gets tiny little hard nodules under her skin on occasion, usually in the same spots. I can see the compacted gunk in her skin pore, and I do squeeze it out and then dab with kids foaming Neosporin.
Looks like a little mouse turd, but it's actually just a doggy blackhead, I guess. Ew! I've seen whiteheads too, but not actual "pimples" (though I wonder if the lick granuloma on her front leg might have started out as a pimple or a bug bite).
Is this something many dogs (like many people, I suppose) are prone to? And I just notice them on her because her fur is so short, and I pet her so much? Does anyone else's Basenji have this problem? Is there something in general I should be doing for her this? Each blackhead comes back maybe once every three months or so…
