    Default Easy tip for coping with an itchy bully

    In my ongoing struggle to ease Truman and Linus' allergies, I came across a tip that seem like a no-brainer but I never thought of so I thought I'd share:

    If your bully is itchy and the itching is causing lesions on the skin that are ripe for fungal and bacterial infections, keeping your bully's nails as short and smooth as possible help prevent them from damaging their skin when they do have the itches.

    The Dremel works particularly well for this task.

    I hope this helps and saves you and your bully from potential infections and vet visits!

    That does make sense

    Thank you @sheshistory, one of the 1st things I did for Mr Brutie in the week after
    I picked him up was get his nails done. Petsmark and I asked they use a file and round
    them...girl left them too long and pointy...grrrr. I woulda noticed except Hubby was with
    us, looking for flea shampoos & asking 100 questions, I was reading ingredient lists on dog
    foods (he was on Iams and was itchy and gassy (very smelly gas) and I wasn't prepared
    for the crowds that gathered around him (Newbies, add extra time to your schedule when
    taking them w/you) but will be checking from now on! Hope the allergies are better! Carol


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Also putting a tshirt on your bully helps prevent secondary infection,Annie wore one for 14 months and it saved a lot of infection setting in,karen
