    @TyTysmom and @2BullyMama

    Thanks for your help ladies, going to get this little lady in the vet asap, just wanted to make sure it wasnt something she got or could give the other dogs at daycare, i did go right to her breeder and if any other pups were reporting any issues

    Also if she does have it and is treated, is it something she is suseptible to get again??

    I should also mention, she JUST got her full CBC panel, and the Vet said it was perfect, if there was an immune problem, would that have shown in her bloodwork??

    Sorry new, Worried mommy here!!

    Its not very likely - Tyson had it when I first got him, it was treated, and he never got it again.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I agree w/the ladies… have is scraped for mange. Walter had that, and I choose to do the dips and we haven't had any trouble since.

    @TyTysmom, @2BullyMama, @ddnene - thanks again so much ladies, will get ellie to the vet ASAP, I did also reach out to Ellies breeder, and did ask if her mama or other puppies had or were reporting any Mange, i did also send her pics as well, and here is the reponse..

    Is still possible to get it from anywhere else other than her mama?!?!

    Ellie does have quite a high protien diet, she eats Orijen puppy, and for training she is also eating grain free chicken meatballs

    Just me thinking TOOO MUCH!!

    Well, mange does not go away without meds so if whatever Momma had would be it. I know what it looks like, but i have no experience directly

    Demodex mange is my guess. A round of ivermectin will control it. Weight specific daily doses maybe in your future. It's rare, but be watchful of ivermectin toxicity.

    I opted for the dips for Walter, and he was fine… his mange was caught early on, and we haven't had any issues. Of course like everything else their are pros/cons w/ANY type of meds that you use. Before you worry… get to the vet to get a proper diagnosis. Our first bulldog Bella would get a line of bumps along her spine and loose fur… she was diagnosed w/alopecia and she was also extremely sensitive to shampoo's w/oatmeal in them.

    Lightbulb Re: Fur Troubles??

    Ellie UPDATE!!

    She got scraped - and NO Mange...Vet is leaning toward a Bacterial Infection on her skin, which he feels is being caused by Allergies, he also sending out a sample of her fur for further testing, which the results will take about 2 weeks

    So for now we have Cephalexin (500mg) (2 - 2x a/day, and Chlorpheniramine (4mg)(1- 2X/day), and a Medicated Oatmeal Wash 1 - 2X a week

    Praying this helps her!!


    Thanks and much Love,
