    Default Got an idea to help out member who owns poor 'Tank'

    My bulldog vet doesn't have an email but I found his facebook page. I downloaded the members post about Tank's problems as well as 5 pics. I posted it on his website. I then called the vets and told them what I did and pleaded for him to take a look and, if he had the time, please give his advice. Maybe we all can do this? We need to help her out as best as we can! If your vets don't have a website,etc..please take a copy of post and pics to your vets! We gotta try to help this poor guy! @TANKERSMOM we are here for you!

    I have contacted SoCal Bulldog Rescue too, they have seen it all. Hopefully @TANKERSMOM comes back to the forum when we get some more advice.

    This is what my vet said......not much help but I think it is kinda hard for them with out actually seeing Tank!

    Sounds like a tricky case Megan. I would probably recommend biopsies of the skin, skin scrape for mange (possibly treat for mange even without a positive diagnosis), liver biopsy. A referral to a dermatologist would also be a great idea. I wouldn't recommend any of these things without seeing the dog first, of course. However, these might be some ideas to bring to her vet if they haven't been talked about already.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I hate it when they do that. Although, she's probably just wrecked with worry and trying to figure out whassup with Tank........
