    Hi, we have been using Virbac dry dog food and have had issues with our 2 labs. Both developed nasty skin conditions around their mouths and chins, it looked like acne. We have stopped using Virbac and the issue has gone away. Has anyone else experienced this with Virbac food?

    How old are your dogs?

    Canine acne can occur in certain ages of dogs, younger dogs being more frequent and quite often it's not good related. Just one of those things that is common in certain breeds.

    Can clear on its own, or with some cleaning never to return.

    Virbac are a company supplying remedies, chemical treatments, and veterinary products for our pets.
    They are not from what I can see a food company. I wonder where they get their nutritional information from.
