    Has there been any changes? Food, surroundings, or people? My first thought went to stress. Please keep me updated..

    Lately he's been playin with my sister dog, a golden more often. But its been goin on for more than a week and he seems okay. I always supervise him and bring him back when his breathings seems a bit heavy.
    3 days ago he played with a husky, the husky recently suffers some skin problems due to allergy. Is it contagious?
    When boo played with the husky, the husky saliva is all over his back, and the day after the problem arose. Is it possible the husky caused it?

    Not usually. If it doesn't correct in a day or becomes worse go get a vet check. I have seen similar reactions while playing and irritation can happen. Lasting longer than 5 days worries me. Bullies have sensitive skin so I personally would play it safe and get it checked. Please keep me updated. I like knowing how my cuties are doing.

    I brought him to the vet, he was given antibiotics and medicated shampoo. The doctor thinks it was yeast or bactery that was brought by the husky.

    Is the skin dry/flaky or moist?

    I had the same problem, it got bad too. Their hair was patchy in spots and had yellowish crusty places.
    My 2 are on diamond naturals (grain free) lamb and rice and the grizzly salmon oil now. They were on totw which was fine at 1st but I think the potatoes in it made the dogs yeasty. And then we had trouble.
    We have now used 4, 40lb bags of the diamond naturals I think we finally found a keeper! Good luck

    I agree with you, Tiffany! POTATOES are the real culprit, and it took me awhile to find that out with Maximus, until I read the TOTW bag, and saw that it not only had white potatoes, but Sweet potatoes also .....Eeeeks! I quickly changed Maximus' diet, and he looks alot better ....

    I used science diet puppy lamb an rice. Never had a problem with it. And i dont think it contains potato..

    The husky have a toy puddle that also got skin problem so i think the yeast come from the husky.

    I'm trying to figure out a way to tell the owner, since there's no way she will admit that the problems come from her dog. And she's the type that likes to scold other people dog and i dont want her messin with mine.

    ok first of all your dog did not get yeast from another dog. yeast is not transferred from one dog to another. yeast comes from moisture so if the other dog had saliva on your dogs back that stayed there then yes maybe. also it has to do with your dogs immune system and allergies. now all that playing could have upset your dogs system enough but i would watch this as it can be a food allergy or environmental. i think you have had trouble before with your dog if i remember right. is he itchy or anything? i see the vet gave you some shampoo but you can put some tolinaftate or clotimazole in between shampoos if needed. also i use hydrocortizone on it if its itchy to. the antibiotics and shampoo should clear it up. keep us posted. @Tiffany B diamond naturals lamb and rice is not grain free as rice is a grain. just fyi.

    @cowsmom, thanks for the correction. No wheat, corn or soy.. it doesn't really matter.. It works for my boys and that's what makes me happy just throwing out a suggestion
