Him bum hole still seems swollen and I notice his um peepee keeps making its appearance and not going back in and I am thinking this is related to the bum issue. Do you think I should go to vet just to be safe???

    As for dampness could be but I have done the same thing when it comes to baths. I think dampness could be the issue tho because his tail is so tight to his body he has never liked me cleaning or messing with his tail or bum. He didn't like me cleaning it today but it is still swollen not nearly as red!!!
    Hey I would get him into the vet! You should do an allergy panel! His allergies seem to be getting worse and it may turn out the bum is from something else ... To me these seem like all alllergies..The quicker you find out what it is the quicker you can make the changes ! Hope everything gets better

    Is he still going to the vet with the 3 bullies that work there??? Is there a vet around you that knows the breed?

    Hoping and praying you get some answers and Cooper gets better
    Everyone wants to kiss a bullie

    @ChanelnBrutus Yeah I am going to get the allergy test done. I still go to the one vet with the 3 bullies but haven't been there in awhile. My mom is taking Gracie to a different vet today because of her limp. So I will see what my mom thinks of this new vet and go from there.

    Some one asked you when the cyst came before or after you put him on the veggie diet. I know what your new problem is!

    Let us know what the vet said, plus being that raw I would not clean it with witch hazel, just warm water and maybe some neosporin.

    what the heck is butt schootching!!!????

    @2BullyMama there is no way to get a pic. I can barely see them I can just feel them. I can see them sometimes when he is sitting and his fur is raised up a little on his neck (his white fur) I can see red spots.....

    @Davidh Thanks I was wondering about the witch hazel too!!! I know that it stings with open wounds. I will just use water. I put hydocrotizone cream on it today. I think I need to start daily cleaning on his tail. He doesn't have a tail pocket but he has a pocket under his tail that is pretty deep and that is where is starts getting red. I will put desitin on it tonight.

    Butt schootching.... drag butt on floor - they are trying to scratch.

    Scabby things... are they dry and flaky or just little lumps?

    Thats is the thing he hasn't been scooting at all. He doesn't act like anything is wrong unless you touch it. I was petting him today and I felt his tail and I felt him get tense and he lifted his head.

    They are dry and flaking and some or just little lumps. They are scabbing like I can pick them off on some of them....

    HUH? You just described a tail pocket!!!

    You know it really takes time to get all the toxins out of the system. Try that shampoo and keep putting desitin on it. Keep it clean under his tail but mainly DRY. If he has a tail pocket put some malacetic or witch hazel up in the pocket, or even gold bond powder, anything to keep it dry and kill germs at the same time.

    OK -- your baby is getting his butt kicked by allergies. If the scabby things are what I think they are --- he has a staph infection, which is a results of the allergies weakening his immune system. You may want to get you boy to the vet tomorrow to have his skin checked and if it is staph he will need a strong antibiotic
