my dog Booba is around 6 month old, we switched to diferent food ( Blue) some time a go
she seems shedding and also noticed few little bumps on her back
other then that all seems fine
wanted to ask if it is normal
Hi, It is hard to diagnose or give advice on a problem without seeing it first hand or at least in pictures. Could you try to get some pics of the bumps, and describe them better. Bumps could be hives, or a rash, or bites, or any number of other things. Shedding is normal, but excessive hair loss causing bald patches isn't. Pics would really help.
My boy sheds like a huskie no matter what we feed him but the bumps sound like allergic reaction to me.
If my dog doesn't doesnt go to heaven then neither am I.
With a few little bumps that come and go, I would say that isn't a big deal. I would say it's a judgement call though really, like Samson is just sensitive as with most bullys and he's had little scabs, tiny bumps that I knew were just some minor irritation here and there in the past, I didn't worry about it or take him to the vet and he was fine. But recently he has had this re-occuring rash, red, flaky skin across his belly and chest that I just knew when it first started happening wasn't normal and it wasn't, that has required numerous vet visits. I would also agree that during certain times of the year and during certain stressful situations pups are going to shed more than other times. Shedding to the point where they are getting bald spots is not normal. I also agree that if you are feeding a food with chicken that could be an issue, alot of bullys have issues with chicken. And not just chicken as the main protein source, ANY amount/kind of chicken in the food can cause a reaction in some bullys (my Samson being one). Hope it's just a minor irritation and goes away soon!

Hi, if it's just a few bumps here and there that come and go, not a big deal. The one thing that is so valuable to me is vinegar. after a bath, rinse shampoo out , then I mix one gallon water to one cup of vinegar, and in this case it doesn't matter what type of vinegar, even white vinegar. pour over pupper and leave it in. dry and they smell nice for quite some time. and all soap residue is gone.
When it comes to serving vinegar in the food or water, one tsp a day will do it. ACV with the mother, unfiltered
Vinegar balances the ph level and is really a wonder cure for many things, and it's inexpensive and all natural
like others have said, chicken can be a culprit too. just like grain, it's not prefered in the breed
please keep us posted on the progress and how things go

As others have asked... pictures of the bumps would be very helpful
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
thanks bumps are not noticeable on the picture, I can only feel it by my hand, it think I know what causes that, it is the tick liquid that we put once a month, and she hates it what you think could that be it?
well its hard to say really bumps could be any number of things. you could delay the tick medicine and see if the bumps go away. if thats all it is i would just keep feeding what you are and be on the lookout for other things. oh and welcome to ebn.
