    Default Skin Problems

    Has anyone ever encountered this before. My Marly has red lumps and it looks like pus at the end of them. I dont know if this is a typical skin condition if so what can be done to help. I was thinking about waiting 3 days and if it doesnt clear up I was going to take her to the vet.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    It's hard to tell from that picture because it's a bit blurry. It does look a bit like the pustules that my dog gets. The way it was explained to me is that it's a bacteria infection triggered by allergies. If that's the case, vet prescribed antibiotics should do the trick.
    Do you have a better picture?

    Cant see from the picture but I havent had any experience with this either. If it is an allergy related thing then I suppose you have to look at what foods you are feeding etc and see what the problem is. How long have you had the bully vs how long this has happened? Has there been any changes recently? Hopefully someone on here will have more experience with this but if it were me not knowing what it is I would go to the vet as reasurance.

    That is the only picture I got from it.

    She's is eating Nutra Ultra which is all natural. I have had her for about 4 weeks and I just noticed last night.

    Maybe it's the detergent you use on her bedding. Try something with no smell to it. Like the kind you use with babies. A friend of mine has a bullie that is allergic to air fresheners that you plug in.

    Well since the switch was only 4 weeks ago it could be the food. Maybe it took this long to develop? I know when I switch my foods it takes about a month or so of being on the new one to tell what the effects will be so maybe? What was she on before was there any bad reactions to it? I looked up that food on the ratings page and it specifically wansnt on there but other nutro foods are, from 1 star which is bad to 3 star which isnt so bad. They say 4 star or more is where you wanna be for the most part if possible.
    here is the link if you wanna check it out.

    Looking closer at the pic, it looks kinda like bug bites. Are the bumps all over, or just a couple on her belly? The pus could be a yeast infection too. Bulldogs are prone to those.

    I use a hell of alot of air freshener since she is still a puppy and shes peein and pooping everywhere. I should stop using it so much I guess and the only bedding she has is her create and puppy training pads.

    Nutra Ulta is a 3 star rating. Petsmart really recommended that food and my vet has been feeding her bullie for over a year.
