    definitely sounds like that food is not for him. My first Bullie went through that. I put her on raw food diet, she got her hair back, no more bumps, has a beautiful coat. The vet was amazed at her coat. I will never use commercial dog food again. I have (5) bullies, all on raw food diet, and their coats are beautiful and shiny. have no skin issues at all.
    Good luck

    Since it is all over, I am think it is allergy related. Are the bumps dry/flaky or moist. The second photo looks dry, but the third looks wet ?

    The bumps are flakey, but he does have large red lumps around his neck, possibly from his collar here is a pic of the sores on his neck the black spot is a scab and the lump is as wide as my fingers

    How long has he been on this food? Last couple pics look like hot spots, first two hives, so my guess would be a major food and/or allergic reaction.

    Any chance you can homecook for the weekend? I would get him off the new food ASAP.

    Im not sure if It will help but would he be able to have benadryl if its an allergic reaction to food? Hoping one of the others can answer that for you as im not sure.. just a suggestion! Keep us updated how he is xx
