    Default Allergies to grass?

    Hello! Were new here and Ive just been looking around the site and getting used to how it works. Well i guess now is the time to post pics and issues that were having..
    So the other day Diesel and I were outside playing in the grass. We normally are never outside long due to the temperature being in the high 90's but since it has dropped a little we have been outside more. I decided to take pics of what i "think" is our problem.
    This is my first bullie so i hope I don't sound dumb, just simply need a few experienced opinions. Its definitely not the food either because we had this problem before so we changed food and since the food change things have been good untill now.. My thought is that its a skin allergy to grass and im just curious if this is very common and how to make it go away and is benedryl OK for it..? Also remember reading about baby wipes.. do we wipe him down after hes been rolling in the grass?

    Any help/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Paula & Diesel

    it's hard for me to see what the issue is in the pictures. the second one looks like red bumps, can't tell where. Brooke gets them sometimes on her belly, I thought it was an allergy (since bullies are so prone) but my vet said it was actually little bacterial infections and gave me some ointment, she said that she would probably grow out of it as she gets older and just put the ointment on whenever we see them. If it is allergies a lot of people do give their bullies benedryl, I have never had this issue so I'm unsure of dosage, but if you search the site I'm sure it's somewhere or someone will jump in and give it to you.

    They are kind of like pimples when you feel them, the ones that are on the leg which is the 2nd pic and the ones in the 1st pic just feel like pimples that you can see through his coat, they eventually go down but not for a few days..
    Brooke is such a cutie and i LOVE her name!

    Aw thanks, her full name is Brooklyn Louise. lol I love the name Diesel for the boys, so fitting for a bully. Yeah Brooke's looked kinda like pimples too but she didn't ever get any under her fur, just on her lower tummy where it's pretty much just skin. You could try some neosporin or antibiotic ointment like that and see if they go away, if so then it's probably infection and if not then it's probably allergy.

    to EBN!! Poor baby...have you have an allergen test done on him already? When Gordis get rashes like these on her legs and tummy it means she is allergic to something in the food. Thought I mention the allergen test because it will save you from a lot of guessing and worries plus it will indicate everything he's actuaaly allergic to.Hope this might help once more

    Welcome to the site and Diesel is a cutie. He could be allergic to grass or something on it. You can also give benedryl, one mg. to one lb. of body weight. Also wiping him down when you come in may help also.

    I didn't know about the doggy allergy testing. That might be a really good idea if you're unsure about what he's allergic to.

    I know I'm allergic to grass and it makes me super itchy and uncomfortable..so I'm sure he's uncomfortable too if that's what he's allergic to.

    growing up we had a bulldog that was allergic to grass. Richard responed to this by getting welps between his toes and pads and he would chew and chew. My mom just made sure to wipe his paws down more often, especially after a mowing.

    Always with me

    Both my pups are allergic to all grass, molds and weeds. had the blood allergy testing done.. saved a lot of pain for them. They are both lbs and get mg benedryl twice a day and we do epsom salt foot baths once a week, and their paws are wiped each time we come in from being on the grass.
