He disagreed lol! Has anyone elses bully been diagnosed with the above conditon? I do not want to give her medicine that will not help her.
    The prednisone will surely help but you don't want to keep her on it long term. I am not familiar with the second medicine.

    Update on Bella:
    i gave her one zyrtec last night and this morning her face looked soooooo much better! I guess my vet may be wrong about allergies (he said that her face was not an allergic reaction). I will not be giving her the perscription pills that he had me buy but will continue the zyrtec until she turns one and I can find out what she is allergic too and try to avoid them. Thanks for all of your help. I knew I would find better information here than at my vets. I will be changing vets soon :} thanks again!

    That is great news! If you do find a good bully vet, please recommend them in the thread in bulldogs health. And don't forget to take some new pics so we can see how it's working!
