    @frankthetank It could be he is loosing puppy fur, allergies, or mange. That is a lot of hair loss. What food is he eating? Try not bathing him so much and add a Vinger rinse (leave on for 5 mins and dry do not rinse off) and only brush him once a day. If you dont notice any scabbing, dryness or bumps and the area is not filling in with new hair I would take him to the vet to do a skin scrape test for mange. Hopefully @Sherry, @cowsmom, @desertskybulldogs might have some suggestions

    Thank you @Ashleym for your advise. I have been so worried today! This started about 3 weeks ago but with this last bath it got worse. I did the Vinager rinse today after the bath. His skin doesn't look dry, nor redish and doesn't have any bumps. I do notice the hair in that area is thicker. He is eating TOTW Pacific Stream for puppies, a bit of Wellness canned salmon on top oh his kibbles, yogurt, cottage cheese and boiled egg twice a week, all as instructed by the breeder. I started giving him Angel Eyes for his tear stains 2 weeks ago after trying all kinds of home remedies, they are getting better. I just got the vitamins Nuvet which will start giving tomorrow. I also have the salmon oil but do not want to start until I see how he does with the vitamins. I don't know what else to do!! Vets here in Panama are not that experts on bulldogs. For what I have read on this site, you all know more about bulldogs than all the vets here put together!!

    It sounds like you are doing everything right and being a good bully mama . If the area is starting to look thicker that is a good thing if it doesnt look better in a couple of weeks take to a vet and get a skin scraping done to rule out demodex mange. I also think you might want to change the shampoo maybe a baby shampoo or a puppy shampoo without oatmeal. The vinegar rinse will help rinse out any soap residue. Hopefully one of the experts will be stopping by with some more advise.

    Sell those black rugs and get light colored ones, maybe patterned...GOD bless!
    Us too, just got leather couches, madness a HUGE difference. And a good vacuum too. I got the shark that specifically has animal hair attachments (for the floor lol not the animal)

    there are several things that could be as ashleym stated. have you changed anything in the last 3 weeks such as food, treats, shampoo, carpet cleaner, anything. i would stop all that stuff you are giving him and start over with just dog food. any one of those things could cause allergies. bullies are very sensitive and the least little thing can upset them. im not saying forever but at least until the hair starts growing back. if he is not better soon i would think a vet visit is in order for a scraping to make sure its nothing else. you can add these things back in one at a time and see what happens i would start with the salmon oil then the angel eyes and vitamin giving several days in between.

    Thanks again @Ashleym and @cowsmom for your advise. I will stop everything today and just give him the kibbles to see what happens, if as you say hair doesn't grow back in a couple of weeks I will take him to the vet. But I have a question, could it be that he is shedding his puppy fur or do you think this is too much shedding?

    IMO its a lot of fur loss. Fergus is 8 months old and when he was shedding his puppy fur we were never able to see skin. Cowsmom gave you great advise. Keep us updated on how he does. BTW Frank is adorable

    I have 4 bullies and they don't really shed alot. I give them a supplement that is listed on the Forum page under GREAT Products for Bullies. It is made by Kauffman Animal Health.
