    Thank ya! He doesn't seem like it is hurting him so that is a good thing. i got the allergy test done so i am hoping we can go from there. I am sure he is tired of me messing with his butt, his toes, his face, his neck, and his back. He is probably thinking Gosh give me a break and stop messing with me And I have learned to have ointment, witch hazel, cotton balls, diaper wipes, and creams..... I should buy stock in all that stuff!!! I just switched to fromm well he has been on it for 2 weeks I think and he was going good until this happened after the vet appt yesterday. I wish the allergy test would come sooner!!!

    he will feel pain of course but he is strong and bulldogs are usually patient dogs,hopefully the test will be back soon and you will be able to eliminate whats bothering him,bulldogs can be a real pain in the but !!!,ive had mine allergy tested through holistic testing as i hate vet products lol but at times we need them unfortunatly ,ive had to get a course of antibiotics for mine as she has an infection due to being in season,i hate using antibiotics but will give her 2 weeks of acidophillus after the antibiotics to counter act what they take out of her gut ,keep on doing what your doing for your bulldog and im sure he will rcover very soon,karen

    All of mine are shedding, and Buddy, Lucy, Jewel, abd Blondie are sheeding like crazy, I can run my hands down their back and hair just falls off. As far as the bald spots I would get them scraped just to be sure, but I have a feeling it's allergies. Try a different FROMM, we did the Beef one one time and BeBe did not do well on it. Buddy is on their new protein, game bird and doing well on it. Lucy did pretty good on surf N turf, so you just need to try which one works for Coop. Once the allergy test come back you can narrow it down then,

    Wow Meg, that certainly does look like something to be concerned about. That would truly suck if he cannot have certain meds. Poor Cooper needs a break! And you! I hope you are at the vet today or it looks better today.

    Sorry I totally thought I posted this already..... Anyway I woke up and called vet and was going to take him they were squeezing me in.... I got up and Cooper followed and he came sat on my lap. Believe it or not his back had basically totally healed. Other than the lack of hair it wasn't red there was not red spots under the fur or anything. So I called and cancelled. I also sent the video to the vet and had him call me when he had time. he said it is odd. He had tested Gracie for mange the day before I took cooper in and he mange test was negative. She has a small patch like the size of a dime where there is no hair. He said he would think she would have mange if Cooper did but still wants me to watch it. I think I am going to take him in Monday just to be safe. but he is laying by me now and If I would do another video for you guys you would see nothing... it is even hard to see the bald spot. So either the oitment stuff worked (christine the stuff I told you I had and you said to use I loaded it on and then wiped it off of him after a couple hours cuz it was all over his fur) and I gave him his keflex.... he looks good. vet thought if it was allergic reaction to something the steroid shot would have prevented it.....so he said still could be mange and if it gets bad bring him in and this could be his problem all along.

    Hmmm... interesting. Not a red mark to be had, huh? Animax is great stuff, but I did not think it would clear up that quick!

    It does, I use Panalog however.... Same thing, it clears stuff up overnight usually. Use it in gunky nose ropes and looks fabulous the next day.

    Meg, I am so glad Cooper is better!! Hopefully, this is all allergies! The steroids should clear up any symptoms from an allergic reaction in a day or two. Sounds like that is what is happening so Cooper should continue to improve each day. Don't worry! His hair will grow back. It seems every time you get over one hurdle, you have another one with Cooper. This will soon all go away and you will forget all of this. Thinking of you and Cooper!
