    you need to check online and see whats in the kibble your feeding,it may not say carbs,but if it has tapioca then thats a high carb,its quite a mine field when your kibble feeding,thats why i dont feed it now,they all say a percentage of meat but what grade is the meat,they dont use the best quality its always the cheapest they can get,and after its been baked at high temps then what goodness is left in ,i would imagine none at all,just a flavouring to get the dogs to eat it,dont mean to drone on lol,but after ive seen the effects on kibble v raw i cant help myself lol,karen

    Hello~
    It does look like it is a cuse for some research. AS others have posted, there are so many conditions that can cause skin problems with Bullies. This is one of the conditions that Bulie owners have to deal with. A process of elimination takes time to find out exactly what it is. Just switiching foods is a long process and can be very expensive. if you decide to switch food, its best to switch over slowly over the course of a week. Slowly blend old with new during the course of a week. Just doing a complete switch can cause stomach problems and digestion problems. While many if not most Bullies are allergic to chicken, others are also affected by grains.
    if your vet has done a scraping and ruled out a yeast infection, it could be from other sources that are causing the redness. Tear stains can be caused by the imbalance in PH levels. The Ph level can be affected by foods, water, grass, plastic or wool.

    The point of all this is to TAKE it slowly and only change ONE thing at a time. Track what you change and watch for results.
    Good Day~

    does it have to b apple cider? Can it b reg. vinager? Just wondering... Also do i just rub it on the rusty colored areas or bath him in it?

    i have read that white vinegar is also used for a dogs coat but i dont know if you can put it in the food/water,i only use apple cider vinegar ,i put in her water/food,and spray her withit also,have you checked your dogs ears?i have been having trouble with some form of allergy with annie i put it down to kibble,the vet said frontline!!,well she has been so good up till yesterday,she was absolutly itch free but when i came in from work i had to take her straight to the vets,her ear was so inflames,red pustles all over her stomache and all infected,but her ear is terrible,now she has never shown any symptoms of yeast in her ears which i think is strange,anyway shes on antibiotics,steroid cream for her ears and a strong antihistamine all of which i was trying so hard to avoid!!,strange thing is on tuesday when she was itch free i took her for a run on our local field and also i noticed that the tree stumps where we live have all been sprayed and have white rings around them where pesticides have been sprayed!!,so no more field running or walks for a while come to that i will excersize her in my garden ,karen
