    I agree with everything except the food.... most vets just push what is in their office or what they get a kick back on. Most of the food they sell is good for a short period of time, but not for life or the long haul. The meds will get the infection out of his system and the shampoo will help clear up his skin.... What Fromm are you feeding?

    Fromm gold holistic , but I'm scared he might be allergic to the food? For now I'm trying to do vinegar/peroxide n water n shampoo him w duoxo. If he doesn't get better till this weekend I will start the medicine and the shampoo the vet gave me...
    Should I do that or start the medicines now? I just hate too use medicines when u don't really have too. Thanks

    I agree with all the above comments, and good advice. The only thing i can add is while Fromms is a excellent food, (my 2 are on Fromms Beef , because of allergies to chicken, salmon, corn, and grains) I had them on the Fromms Puppy Gold, but it is chicken based, and they deveoped rashes, diarreha, red and pink colourd ears, faces, chins, and itchy red feet. You can switch between all the Fromms foods without having to transition them. Might be worth a try. Good Luck, I hope you find what is causing the skin problems. Get better Major. Keep us posted

    I agree totally with the medication but definitely not with the RC food.

    I know you are already feeding the Fromm Gold ... but the Fromm 4* range is actually the next step up. It is better quality, so you might want to consider switching him to one of the 4* flavours. Many bullies are allergic to grain and in the Fromm 4* there are FOUR different flavours that are all grain free. However, out of those four only one of them is chicken free too and that is the Beef Frittata. Of course, your bully may not be allergic to chicken but I think I would try swtiching to the Beef anyway if I were you. I'm sure it would help feeding him a better food. The Royal Canin is actually a much worse food then you are currently feeding so I see no advantages to using that!

    i thought the fromm i am feeding him is grain free?
    i do not like to switch to different fromm bc i been feeding him this since he 2 months now hes almost a yr, nothing wrong before(healthy pulse, no tear stains no scratches) . so i should switch it to different fromm anyway?

    and i should start with the medicines now? or wait till the weekend till i finished with cleaning him vinegar/peroxide n water n shampoo him w duoxo.
    i try not to give him medicines unless i have too.
    thank guys.

    Hmmm ... as far as I know all the Fromm Gold range has grains in .... from what I can see they all certianly have chicken in, so if he has developed an allergy to chicken then none of the Gold range is going to be of benefit to him.

    Get on the meds now.... the infection is in his system not just on the skin. The shampoo just helps clear the skin.

    As for the Fromm... the Gold line is not grain or chicken free. @cowsmom can give more details, but I feed the grain -free and switch between flavors (without chicken) with no issues. Beef Frittata and Game Bird are what works for Banks.
