    Default Bullie from Duluth, MN

    Hi! Wanted to introduce Chunk! He will be 2 on May 9th this year. He is my first English. I wanted to join this site because anything that can go wrong with an English has happened to Chunk. They say this breed is pretty high maintenance and I am seeing how true that is. When I picked him up---he already had cherry eye and had surgery done. But shortly after, he started with skin issues. He's had hot spots, yeast and bacterial infections, and not to mention interdigital cysts on his paws, OH! and a tail pocket infection. I would like to know if anyone else out there has had this much trouble with their babies? I thank you for the welcome and look forward to reading the forum!

    Welcome to the site. Most of the skin issues you explained, can be fixed with a food change. What food do you have him on?

    Hi and to EBN..... yes, agree with David, all you mention can be related to feeding the wrong food for you bully.

    You can look at this list to see what food you may want to change over to but some favorites her are Fromm, Earthborn, Nature's Variety, Merrick's, Taste of the Wild

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Welcome to EBN. Sorry to hear of these issues, are you still feeding Science
    Diet? Y'all see vast improvement in all this even healing if you change to grain
    free and a compatible protein. Fromm's has a new Pork N Peas that many are
    doing well on. I feed TOTW (Taste of the Wild) Bison & Venison. It'll stop bad
    gas problems too. Cut out treats unless green beans, sardines, soft boiled egg,
    yogurt...these can be given once or twice a week and good for them. Give a
    couple of peeled slices of avocado (no pits) a couple times weekly as it will heal
    his skin and is great for his coat too. Coconut oil will heal him, a daily tsp on top
    of kibble and rubbed onto skin irritations and on dry nose works miracles. Good
    luck, let us know & GOD bless!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
