    Hi and welcome to EBN. You already got great advice from members above, and agree that her symptoms are definitely allergy related, and the best thing you can do is put her back on a better quality food, and boost her immune system by adding plain unsweetened yogurt to her kibble, and apple cider vinegar to her drinking water.

    As for balancing her ph level, and getting her immune system back up and running, I'd give her a bath in Original blue Dawn in 1 cup of water just put a couple of squirts in the water. wash her up and rinse really well. Then in one gallon of water add one cup of white vinegar, pour over her and leave on, then dry with towel. you won't believe how clean she feels without having dry skin, and she'll smell great. I'd also give her a vitamin c tab and a zinc tab once a day with her food and a dollop of plain yogurt.
    You should keep up the Benadryl too , for a couple more weeks or is she is scratching

    Please keep us posted on her condition.



    First of all to EBN ... and secondly, Sherry has given you some great advice there!!!

    All I would add is that if she still seems restless during the early morning you can give her a melatonin tablet about half an hour before it's bedtime. You can pick them up at any drugstore in the "herbal/natural" section. They may help her sleep.

    Thank you all for your advice...I never thought about putting yogurt in her food or the apple cider in her water? What are the benefits to this. I am definately going to get her back on her Limited Ingrediant food this weekend. This morning she woke up at 230 and was so restless, panting, and passing gas. She is crate trained but she is normaly not this bad during the night. My boyfriend works 1pm to 1030pm so he needs his sleep and if I crate her she will bark non stop..As you know bulldogs can be very stubborn..LOL
