    Default Sores on the back

    I got Diesel back in February from a lady who didn't want him due to asthma. When I got him his coat was really nice. She was feeding him eukanuba high maintenance. I switched him to the dog food what I feed my other two dogs ( one bully and one boxer) which is 4health grain free pork and sweet potato. I started adding now coconut oil to their food once a day. Few weeks after I got him he got his tail removed so they shaved his lower back. Now that the hair finally came in and I washed him yesterday really good I found those spots!!! Is it from food? Or is it yeast? Staph infection?
    What can I do???

    Hmm doesn't look like yeast to me… looks like an allergic reaction to something. Could be the shampoo that you used yesterday?!! Any other changes recently… washing powder? Does it seem itchy to him?

    When his hair was growing back I saw few spots but thought I will let the hair to grow as maybe it was from shaving. He had the spots there . They were dry and scalpy looking but now I gave him a good bath and they are sores. I have a medicated shampoo from the vet for him and I was giving him a bath in that because of the spots. I just talked to the old owner and she said that he never had that before so I wonder if it's food?? But he just got those few weeks ago and I have him on that food since march. It doesn't seams to itch him however he is chewing on his paws here and there so I started him on Benadryl few days ago

    I would switch up the food and see if they go away. It's allergy season so the Bendryl should help him out.

    Could be staph, but keep in mind staph is due to a weak immune system, which is a result of allergies (like that circle)..... Try changing up the protein in his food and see it it helps.

    I bought duck and potato but not one of my dog licked it. I guess I can buy whitefish and potato and see if this go away? I have an apt for Saturday with my cat so I will just take him with me. Also since probably two or three weeks his breath gotten a lot worse. Plan is to get him finally neutered and while he is under to get his teeth cleaned. But we need to put some money away first since our funds got low with his rail surgery, my cats collapsed lounge and then my other bullies crazy episode where she was at the vet with fever with Ivs for few days. But I am wondering if the bad breath has something to do with his sores on his back

    Breath issue can also be due to the food or allergies....Banks ' breath is really bad when her allergies are in high gear

    It can take up to 3 weeks to see a difference. I'd go with a grain free food if I were you, he may be allergic to the grains too.
