    At first I balked at the thought that this was a grass-related allergy. Porkchop has not had any issues with these cysts except when I first got him 4 years ago and that was pretty minor. Four years later...I did notice a new kind of weed in the yard that spreads like clover. I have been hand-weeding them for the last couple of months because they choke out my grass. I don't use herbicides because my little backyard is a butterfly/bird habitat. It will be interesting to see if Pork's ailments go away once I win the weed battle.

    Lambeau is allergic to 'pigweed' which seems to want to take over our yard this year... I never heard of it till we did his allergy tests and bang, it is now trying to invade our yard. Good luck!

    The biggest problem with antibiotics is that they will kill the good bacteria as well and as soon as the regimen is done the yeast is likely to strike again....and then the vet gives you another round of antibiotics and you're deeper in again....I can't stress enough the importance of good balance in the digestive system and the colon. Antibiotics wreak havoc in there and leave the dog (and us humans) again with less immunity to fight with, for one, yeast. Probiotics in a pill form are good, but fresh sauerkraute (not from the jar) is a great addition. And most bulldogs have had their first round of antibiotics in their mothers milk, since most are delivered through c-section.
