Schnauzer Bumps or comedone syndrome, is a skin condition that mainly affects the Schnauzer breed, hence the name. They are not contagious to other dogs or humans.
So, you wake up one morning to find a few little bumps developing upon
your Schnauzer's back. They're kind of like little warts and you freak
out a bit. You didn't notice them yesterday and now your Schnauzer has
several of them. Well don't panic. Most than likely they're Schnauzer bumps and they are not harmful to your dog nor are they contagious to other dogs or humans.
That being said, they are one of the most reported health concerns from Schnauzer owners. Unfortunately for the Miniature Schnauzer, these little bumps or comedones are thought to be an inherited condition and may be present throughout the dog's life. And while they pose no threat to your Schnauzer (unless they get infected) they drive Schnauzer owners crazy looking for a solution.
You will hear all sorts of theories and treatment options from dog groomers, vets, and other Schnauzer owners on how to cure them, but because no one really knows what actually causes them, a permanent solution to the problem has yet to be found.
Schnauzer bumps vary depending on the dog. Some Miniature Schnauzers have them all the time, others experience dog bumps or flare-ups from time to time, and some Miniature Schnauzers never get them at all.
The dogs with the condition have their owners begging for a solution. So below are some of the treatment options you might want to try if your Miniature Schnauzer is one of the unlucky ones with this condition.
NOTE: If your Schnauzer's skin bumps become infected, please consult with your veterinarian as a round of antibiotics might be needed. Also, always consult with your vet when detecting any new dog lumps or bumps on your dog.
