    Thank you for trying to do the best you can in a difficult situation. My experience with Royal Canin is that it caused my bully the worst allergy / skin problems she ever had. There is a list of better foods on this site, I posted a link to it in my earlier post. If you can't get one of those, try making your own. Stay away from chicken and chicken based foods. Bullys seem to be allergic to that more often than any other protein from what I read on this board. Fish works well for many and should be affordable in Japan. If you have access to a US military base you may be able to find something there or they may be able to special order something for you. If you're in the JET program or something similar, your support system might be able to help you find what you need.

    Here is a great link to skin issues and some of the possibilities, it has eczema on it as well and explains from mild to severe cases as well as if bacteria has set in. Hope this helps.

    well its hard to tell from the pic but i dont think thats a hot spot. it would be very very wet and that doesnt look that way. could be some type of mange or maybe a bad yeast infection. in any event this dog needs to go to the vet and now. i would be on the phone calling every vet i could find. in the mean time you can do as lucy-licious said and try to get some anti bacterial soap on it. im not sure what they have there but you can go to the pharmacy and ask what they have. hibiclenz is good but not sure what they have there. this is probably food related maybe so i would see about a new food. grain free if you can find something. if not i would see about ordering something in if you can. keep us updated and get that poor baby to the vet asap.

    There are a couple of things I would be thinking of doing in your position. Firstly take the picture along to the vets and see if that will get your appointment sooner or even ask if they have emergency appointments that you can take. In the meantime search for another vet...in case you can get him in somewhere else sooner. A vet is a vet in skin problems...since this is not bully specific dont worry about finding a good bully vet just yet, although of course that could be useful later on xx


    I would if I were you clean, thoroughly dry, then clip the area and get all the fur off to around an inch around the wound. This will be difficult though I know, and if its hurts him may need to be left to the vet, but is probably the first thing a vet will do. I'm gonna call for @cowsmom....it looks like its possibly a very large hot spot...she has dealt with them and all manner of skin issues so she will have good advise on how it can be treated until you get to the vet for antibiotics.


    If you can get it buy some Hibicleans/hibiscrub.....it's a chlohexidine solution that will kill 99.9% of bacterias so will help...you will need to clean it daily with that. @cowsmom will tell you how to use it best and the type of cream you can use on top. Do you think it's itching him? Simple allergy meds can help with itches x


    If finding a good food you can get sent in is difficult then you may want to consider raw or home cooked....there are people here who can help with that too


    Big hug to you both xx hope he gets to feeling better soon.


    Oh and what are the meds you have at the moment?
    You are an angel for saving him from a neglectful home
    This is exactly what I was going to recommend! Holy hot spots that one is huge, it must be very painful and itchy, he will surely need a topical steroid. Can you get hydrocortisone there? The more often you clean it with antibacterial soap the better, if you can do it 3x a day. If you have some hair clippers shave the entire area. The goal is to dry it out, and the hydrocortisone will help the itchyness.

    Dogs (and bullies) are sometimes very stoic concerning pain.

    If you can't find Hibiclens or antibacterial soap you can get Listerine (the original)
    and pour distilled water on cotten ball then the Listerine and pat gently 3-4 times
    daily. GOD bless and keep us updated...thank you for giving this bully a home.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
