    Default UDATE: URGENT: My baby is having a horrible reaction please HELP!!!!!

    Ok so took her to a vet that specializes in English bulldogs which was in another state only 35 mins though thank god...Anyways he's thinking she's allergic to fleas since he combed her and he saw one dead and one alive...But it may have been the shampoo because it was new but I did however use it on her a month back and no reaction. He said it could also be her food since we just switched it last month but its the same brand just different ingredients somewhat, So in food part we just have to see if if clears up. But he said he's pretty sure she's allergic to fleas..He shaved her and cleaned up the mess and gave her a Depo shot Im assuming a steroid some antibiotics(cephalexian 500mg 2x's daily for 10 days) a spray called Zymox topical 2xs a day up to two weeks and flea chew-able tablet called comfortis(has anyone heard about it? I was using vectra 3d before is this better then vectra?) She seems a little more comfortable and sleeping since we got home but Im sure that shave and scrub wasn't pleasant and wore her down I was crying hearing her scream Im having our pest guy come out tomorrow morning to spray for fleas inside and we will discuss about the yard getting sprayed too. I hope this is all it was because my heart cant go through this again and Im sure she feels the same way...I feel so helpless and sad that she has to go through this I will keep yall updated and try and load more pics of her progress thanks for all the support and answers

    My heart goes out to you but you did the absolute right thing by taking her to the vet you did. It does look awful but I'am sure she is feeling a lot better. With the shot and anitbiotics etc she will be in better shape within 48 hours. It is very difficult to pin point what actually is the cause as our bullies react so strongly to many many things. I have been down the "helpless" road, but we are all here for you if even if it is just to support you and pat you on the back

    Oh sweet baby...I know it was a bad experience for you both but you did the right thing and with a little TLC she will soon be in tip top condition. My old Border Collie Shep was allergic to flea bites..and regularly broke out in a similar way if one got him. Unfortunately he also reacted to most flea treatments so eventually we had to say goodbye to my beautiful cat who was bringing those damn things in...he went to a farm where he still lives a life of luxury
    pit was a good choice though because Shep didn't suffer again after that...well not from the flea bites anyway. Poor lad also had colitis and arthritis.
