    Default Help and advice redness

    Hi im sorry for this to be my first post but im lost for ideas as my vets are no use at all


    I have a one year old bully (FRANK) hes always had redness in his skin but in the last 4-5 months its got much worse ive had him to the vets more than 10 times this year and they are no help ....... the redness is under his chin and on his body and paws but recently his paws and side of his head are so dry that they sometimes bleed and more recently he's produced bald patches on his rear legs and back that have been tested for mites but came back negative

    the vets have gave me medicated shampoo and steriods to try and take the redness out his skin but nothing works yet thats there answer everytime i visit .I have also changed his food at least 5 times through advice from the vets but nothing helps so far

    I welcome all comments and help and advice i only want my dog to get better and have placed all my trust in the vets but they will not help my boy !!!


    i will post up pics if that will help

    I am sure more experienced members will help you but what kind of food do you give Frank? Do you know if he has any allergies?

    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    Hi Frank2011! Yes pictures will certainly help. With what your vet is prescribing it sounds like bad allergies but let us see, it will help a lot and we will go from there.

    could be allergies but if the steriods and such are not working maybe not. have they done a thyroid test or any bloodwork at all. might be time for a new vet. yes pics would help for sure.

    My Blossom also had pink skin, ears, chin, and eyes, and her eyes teared a lot. We changed her food 4 times, before we found one that worked. She's is on Fromms Beef Fritata, and she is much better. We aren't sure exactly what she is allergic / sensitive too, but suspect chicken, all the foods with a chicken base, give her the pink colour and soupy poops. Also corn, and grains. Her eyes are still a little teary, and get irritated, but I think it's more due to the cherry eye surgery. It's only been 2 weeks. We are still putting drops and cream in her eyes. Sometimes when she was really pink, we gave her a Bendryl, , one pill 25 mg for every 30 lbs. have you tried giving Frank some Benadryl? , to see if he gets some relief. What type of shampoo do you use? Or even laundry soap, can cause allergy symptoms in a sensitive bully. Try unscented products, like you would a baby. Good luck, I hope he gets some relief.

    Poor baby! That most definedly can be food related and I suggest trying raw or home cooked food for him.

    Have you tried Fromms Beef Fritata? There are no brains, and it's beef not chicken, which are the foods that cause Blossom to be pink. It took about a month before we saw the difference, as it takes this long for the other foods to leave their body. She no longer is pink on her chin, no rash, and no pinkness in her ears, they always looked pink and angry inside. She looked a lot like your Frank does in the picture.
