    Well unfortunatly I didnt take pictures of her when she was losing her hair but luckily she only had a few small spots that lost hair. I did post some current pictures of tubby in my profile as well as a couple of old ones. I just want to say thanks to those involved with starting this site cuz i am learning alot about the breed. I only wish that I would have found this before my wife got me tubby cuz we first starting feeding her pedigree. Poor girl had the worst bout of constipation the vet seen in years(his words not mine) Well thanks to knowledgeable people like yourselves she has really florish with such breed specific treatments. Thanks again and keep the tips coming, Tubby thanks you for them.

    I am so glad you found out what was wrong. It always seems as if with Bulldogs, there is always something, but here you usually can find out what.

    Always with me

    Porky had something like this also. I was told that it was stress related Not sure if it was or not but after a few days it was gone. I did not have to do anything for it.
    I am so sorry that I am not much help, maybe someone on here knows more about this.

    Good luck

    The ketaconizole will help the fungal infection, which is what ringworm is. I think it is the best way to treat these skin issues, which can rear their ugly heads again if not treated correctly. Humidity cane cause them to flare up. I have had problems in the past because my hands are in soap and water so much.

    Bruno is 9 months old 55 pounds.

    We had something similar happen w/ Cash.
    He was on Natural Balance and I didn't love him on it, switched him to Orijen 5Fish and the spots / circles started to happen. We took him to the vet and said that it was too high of a protein in the food. She suggested we put him on a different protein level, we went to Acana Pacifica and weren't happy with that food - allergies acting up VERY badly, but the circles filled in, so we now have him on Acana Limited ingredient Duck and Bartlett pair and things are ok; but not great. The tiny circles are filled in, just his allergies are bugging him. Much better than before, though.

    I would check the protein levels and find out if Natural Balance have changed their recipe.

    Loki has this exact same thing we had mange and ringworm testing done and it was determined that he was blowing his coat and that he had alopecia a week went by with lots of sun and gentle brushing the hair grew back like nothing ever happened. My vet said that our bullies can get alopecia very easily especially in the northern climates where winter last year went from October to May ( not kidding we made a snowman on 5/2 )

    Wow. Otis has this exact same thing right now. I thought it was ringworm, but it's not red or anything. It started when he was eating raw (chicken) and he was itching and had loose stools. So I switched the chicken out, and he's still itching a bit, but there's more hair growth now.

    If it's not completely grown in soon I guess I should make a visit with the vet.
