    Default Any ideal what could be causing this on her fur??

    First off I would like to say thanks for all the great info on this site. Its been very helpful. Our six month old little girl has just started developing some skin irritations and we are at a loss. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. We were on Royal Canin for Bulldog pups but have recently added some California Lamb and Rice meal. We also give her a teaspoon of yogurt in the morning with her food.

    Thank for any advice..-20151015_153542-jpg-20151015_153603-jpg-20151015_153624-jpg

    Looks like an allergic reaction. I would try a food change. Something that is grain free and no chicken.

    RC really us not a good food... Lots of fillers. So definitely look for a better food.

    I would have the vet do a scraping to check for Demodex mange, just to be on the safe side.

    It looks like alopecia to me since the skin appears dark.We give melatonin to ours.

    OK I thought it might be alopecia, but being it is on her legs I doubt it. Alopecia is almost always on the sides.... full name is season flank alopecia.
    This looks more like a reaction to something in the food.... does Cali-Natural have a grain free line you can try? Has the vet done a skin scrape to rule out mites/mange?

    I would Have mange ruled out, but it does look more like allergy issues.
