    OMG... he is ador-a-bull!! Great name for him too. So, welcome - this is a great place for all your bully needs and I agree with all the others - diet is SO important with this breed. Be sure to read the list of recommended foods here on EBN it is very informative and you will see a few surprises.

    Now for the AC, my boy Nitschke had two replacements on his right back leg. The first happen when he was playing with his buddy Basta (Cane Corso). He would not put his leg done at all, took him in to find he had a complete tear. About 6 weeks in, we noticed he started lifting it again and it just did not seem right.. turned out it did not take, another tear in the repair. For the second surgery we went with a cadaver instead of the line and he was good as new and doing great.

    The glucosamine/chondroitan is a great start to help with the joints. Good luck and keep us posted.

    Great puppy I can see that he has strong personallity. I have not experience neather of the two but I can tell you if you start actually looking for the right food for him that will help him a lot also to your packet. I noticed that he has some problems with his tears to help improve you can use Zincofax is a cream for the paper rash and it works believe me I use it on Besito and he does not suffer with it any more. What are you feeding him?

    hi and welcome! When my stig had mange it was a secondary reaction to his food ... he was allergic to some of its ingredients so it compromised his immune system. after a few switches, we found that raw was best for jim. haven't visited the the vet since the change, except for a cherry eye. this was about a year ago.

    i mentioned food because it does play a crucial role in boosting and keeping their immune system strong. Blue bufallo is good food though :. have you noticed any other symptoms of a possible allergy?

    Welcome and maverick is a handsome young man we have had issues with mange and jar now getting over it. He came from a litter of 9 and all lived!!! So his immune system wasn't as strong when e was a puppy around 5 month he got mange and a few months later w some antibiotics and cream it was cleared. When he turned 1 in feb he had another out break of it and we have been fighting it ever since. We did 6 weeks of dips and that didn't clear it up! The vet had us try promeris it's a flea and tick medicine but is goin off the market cause it was having bad side effects to some dogs. It hasn't bothered lex and he is 100% better after 4 mints of being on it. We are in the process of changing his food to a 6 star food so I'm hoping it will help with the hair growing back. Also another type of medicine I have been told about is inver... Something @cali~jenn can tell u more about it what did he do to rear his acl?
