Yes dogs get something similar to acne, really it's called folliculitis. A couple of my weims used to get it when they were younger, they grow out of getting it. It only happened in the spring/summer months too.

Ask your vet about it and see if they think that is what it is. My first dog with it was misdiagnosed and put on the wrong meds and just got worse, till we saw the vet that we go to now, and he told us that is what it was.

They got up to about marble sized bumps all over her body.

I think, and don't quote me on this as its been a while since I have seen it, I think that my girls were put on cephalexin/keflex or something like it, but I can't really remember.
