    Question Puppy shedding uncontrollably!! :( :(

    Hello I'm a new bulldog owner and my puppy (almost 13 weeks old) has been shedding uncontrollably to the point where there's chunks of his fur falling off and a little bleeding. My boyfriend and I took some of his chew toys away thinking he might have some sort of allergic reaction to it. Some parts of fur and skin feels a bit rough and we're not so sure why
    Please help!
    We're also feeing him blue buffalo grain free- for puppies
    We're using Earth bath puppy shampoo

    Keep in mind were newbies at owning a bulldog

    Sounds like seasonal allergies. 1 tablespoon of coconut oil will help with the hair loss. Also 1 Benadryl/Zyrtec for the allergies.

    How is the poop looking? It's probably seasonal allergies but if the poop isn't firm I would consider switching food. My dog has chicken allergies.

    Welcome to EBN..... I would have the vet skin scrape to rule out mange... At his age it can be common, they sometimes get it from momma and the one picture looks like it MIGHT be mange.

    Keep us posted--- good luck

    ...but always good to give them a tablespoon of coconut oil! I always give them as morning topping along with 1 tbs of plain greek yogurt to help with the breath.

    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.
