Do yorkies get pimples?
Hello! My yorkie is 4 years old and this has never happened before, but I discovered three pimples around her neck area. When I felt the first bump a few days ago, I took a closer look and it looked like a pimple/zit with white puss in it (whitehead). Then today I found 2 more just like it. Is this something I should be worried about?

They are probably sebaceous cysts. They are pretty common and usually nothing to worry about.

Yep, they can get them - most often, on the underside of the chin - but I suppose the neck as well. Just keep an eye on them and see if the dry up over a couple weeks; if not, may want to go to the vet after a bit.
