    Bleach and vinegar should not be mixed together! A quick google search and found several topics related to it. Also, bleach should never be used on a bulldog's overly sensitive skin.... Add that with vinegar and you have a dangerous and potentially deadly combination!!!!

    OMG! Well, I won't do that again!!!! I was given that mixture recipe. I will just continue with the coconut oil rinse or nothing at all. The coconut oil rinse left his hair feeling weird. Aside from his feet, he has a spot on his face and his whole chin and throat are spot free. His raw and gross spots are improving. It is a slow, slow process. But yes, I do see improvement. My biggest concern is why, why, why is my baby so skinny?! Like I said, he eats two pounds a day. I think I'm going to go get him a probiotic tomorrow.
    As for his name and is it a Seinfeld reference, I have no idea. I got him in May and his name was Seven. It is fitting for my house. My husband and I have four kids so Seven makes the seventh one in the house. He looks kind of like a Max sometimes. He can give an awesome stink eye.

    How old is seven? Im asking because sometimes from age 4 months to about ten months they go through a very skinny phase, like a teenager- they have not filled out yet.

    I'm glad the spots are improving, how long has he been on the new food?

    I'm thankful Lisa confirmed NO BLEACH on bullies, why I questioned you earlier about it.
    Especially w/his skin so raw but you can use the mix I gave you in my PM as it kills yeast
    and won't harm him, will make his coat soft & smell good too It's 1 GAL Water to 1 cup
    White Vinegar & 1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide. It can be reused for 3-4 times before discarding
    if used for paw dipping (large bowl or large pan) and/or dipping a washcloth & wiping warm,
    moist areas prone for yeast overgrowth like armpits, groin, anus, ears, etc. Once paws are
    dipped and areas wiped down DO NOT RINSE, you may pat paws dry but leave on skin.

    Use the coconut oil, not as an overall rinse but undiluted on raw areas or sores to heal &
    protect, a little goes a long way. After Seven's poo stabilizes, you can add in his food. For
    now, add a clove of garlic, chopped finely (NO this will not kill him...large amts could possibly
    but not this amt) it is great as anti viral/kills yeast & strengthens immune system. Plain, no
    sugar added yogurt can be put on as a food topper, a dollop is good. Slippery Elm is a very
    soothing herb that will coat his intestine & stomach (raw internally from yeast) so he can EAT.
    Colostrum will also help sooth, calm & heal internals and help him eat & gain weight, I've got
    more but that's it for tonight


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Did mean to say to use the Vinegar mix as a final LEAVE IN TREATMENT after
    shampooing, rinsing shampoo out than Vinegar mix all over except head & ears.
    May pat dry but leave in as all over skin healing agent, anti itch help & protectant.
    Cover w'soft, light T-shirt. This mix can be used thru out the week anytime Seven
    gets itchy & sore (without shampooing) just pour over him, leave in and air dry or
    pat dry.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    im thinking his being skinny might have to do with the yeast. that stuff takes alot out of a dog. i found sarah got more playful and such when the yeast started to clear up. just think about the duoxo ps shampoo and duoxo pads they are great for so many bully skin issues. no worries as we each have to find our own way here and learn as we go. no one here started out a bully expert it comes from been there done that. im so glad your baby is getting better and thats the important thing.

    Seven is 3 years old. He has been on the Freshpet for a month. I went full on raw and he would eat it. He quit acting like he liked it and I found the freshpet on accident. It was similar so I got a small package to try. He loves it so that's what I moved him to. I do not see him changing his mind on this at all. I like that it is giving him what I was giving him but with easier portions and more nutrients. I really liked it's rating on dogfoodadvisor.com.

    Sounds like he really loves it, that's great! If he's three then there went my idea of going through the teenager phase. @cowsmom has a good suggestion- he may start gaining weight and looking good once his yeast is under control.

    Thanks. I grew up with English bulldogs. I got one for myself in my early 20s. He was 2 years old when he died. He contracted valley fever right after we moved to California. He was awesome. My husband now agreed that we could get one. I found Seven for sale on Facebook. I went to look at him and see if he would be a good fit. These were his second owners. I got lied to (and I knew it then) and I witnessed him getting abused. Needless to say, I could not leave this baby behind. I paid for him and we left. The day I got him, he was getting sores on his body and had some on his face. It got worse even after I took him to the vet and changed his food. Do I regret my decision to bring him into my family? ~sigh~ No, I don't. He has a lot of love to give and if he were still in the previous home, he may have died by now. My family loves him. I love him so much. I can't wait for him to be better so I can take him to the pet store with me or take him to the park. I don't want people to stare at him. He wouldn't notice but I would. This is an excruciatingly slow process to rid him of the yeast. I see improvement though so I know what I am doing is trying to work.
    Question. Chicago English Bulldog Rescue has a dog named Louie that's up for adoption. He had yeast when they got him. Two months later, he is yeast free. I asked what they did. You betcha! They changed his food, gave him antihistimines, and put chlorhexidine solution on him. It's basically hibiclens but in a larger container. I found it on Amazon. Any thoughts on this? I have done everything they have done except the chlorhexidine.

    I love chlorihexidine!! It's a great thing to use for paw soaks, and after bath rinses. Do not use in ears, near eyes or nose though. I also use it to mop my floors in the house! Kills bacteria and yeast both.

    hon thats what duoxo is chlorhexidine and thats why ive been trying to get you to get it as ive used it on sarah and its wonderful. the shampoo works great and so does the duoxo pads. you can use hibiclenz you get at at the drug store if you need something now.

    Ok great! I have some witch hazel smelling ear wipes that I do his ears with and I wash his face with diluted apple cider vinegar. I have no idea if that helps but it's that or plain water. I don't want to injure his eyes with anything so I wash his entire head with a wash rag except his ears with those wipes. That's all I will do with his ears because my previous bulldog had two ear infections and consequently had seizures when he had them. So I'm afraid of ear issues. Seven's is yeast. But they are better! His bald spots do have hair growing back in. So I'm taking that as a good sign.
