    Sorry @Dana F I just saw this question.

    As with any bacteria, it can spread, cleaning bowls as often as possible will help, especially with chin acne and wet drinkers, as well as patting dry with a towel. Once the immune system builds it should act like a 'shield' against bacteria, germs and virus, just as with humans.

    That is why, even with bad allergy sufferers, a good dog food helps them so much, it may no alleviate all allergy problems, but it does help them create some of that 'shield' and makes the allergy problems more manageable.

    Thanks!

    Hello everyone - I'm a new bully momma and have just recently found a Hot Spot on Boss. I immediately followed the directions to treat it as listed above and am thankful that I had read up on it otherwise I would have totally been freaking out. It looks as though Boss is going to recover well but, I'm still wanting more information on these "Hot Spots." I'm hoping all you bully experts out there can help . . . . .What causes these Hot spots? Do they happen often? How long do they last? What can I do to avoid Boss getting them altogether? Being such a new parent any info or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you Lisa for this thread! So, so helpful. Brutus rubs his face in the carpets, rubs his back under the furniture, licks his feet until the carpets are soaked. Scratches all the time. We've had him on prednizone and antibiotics for over a year. The vet seems to think that the allergy shots would only help about 50%. We have him on Fromm Surf and Turf but am going to add some krill oil and get the shampoo you recommended. It's definitely yeast as well as allergies. You can tell by the smell. Do you think we should still add the yogurt? And we'll do the pet tabs too. I feel so bad for our little buddy.

    Maybe, try a different Fromm flavor. My girl can't do the surf n turf because of a sensitivity to Salmon and white potato being so high in the ingredient list. Maybe Beef Fritatta or Pork and Peas, or Game Bird

    My bully baby is itching his hind quarters and legs like a mad man. Also his whole belly, private areas and inside legs are a darker color than they once were. I did a little research online and it mentioned it could be a skin yeast infection. He also has little red dots on his belly. and the bottom of his paws look like the yeast picture in this article. Also he had been flea treated and never before had a problem with the frontline before. His food has been the same and again I thought he was doing fine on it with leads me to believe it's seasonal allergies or a skin issue. I would love someone else's advice.

    Hi Krystal - are you feeding him a grain free food?

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