Our girl is now almost 1 year old and she keeps getting these bumps under her chin. They are kind of like pimples. When we look at them they are full of puss. She does seem to get ingrown wiskers but we do not see anything in or around these spots. Has anyone else had this problem? Could they be heat related or possibly from her beard being wet all the time from her drinking her water? Any help would be great.

Difficult to say what it may be. If there is puss then you know that you are dealing with an infection. Any chance it could be porupine quills?
I think it is probably a matter to be checked by your vet

She has not been around any porcupines but the large one we kept an eye on seems to be clearing up. If it doesnt go away soon we will have to take her to the vet. We just see her getting lots of ingrown wiskers and were wondering if this is common with this breed.
