We recently found a small light beigh bump on the outside of our pug's lip. it looks like a round pimple. there is another one on the other side as well. There is no discomfort to our dog. If you feel it by placing a finger over it and a finger under it (grabbing the upper lip) it seems a bit bigger under the skin. Other then that, he is happy and healthy. We are a bit reluctant to go to the vet as we have ran there over small things only to have the vet hand us large bills. Are there certain signs to look for? The bumps are about 1/8" in diameter.

This is a fairly common for Pugs. It's called Pug pimples. They usually disappear of their own without treatment. But if he starts to scratch at them or they become reddened and sore then it is best to seek veterinary attention.
