A. If the pimple is not bothersome it may be best to just keep an eye on it and watch for any changes such as reddening, growth, or itching/pain to your pup. Puppies can sometimes get strange bumps that may go away over time. If the pimple grows in size, becomes very red, affects the eye itself or is bothersome to your pup then it is best to have the vet take a look. They can safely remove the growth if needed, and may also recommend additional treatments to protect the eye. If your pup is bothered, placing an Elizabethan (cone) collar on her to prevent scratching at and possibly hurting the eye is best until she can get into your vet.
