    regular exams, you can then always show to ER vets his medical history. Very
    helpful than trying to fill out paperwork espc if emergency and you're scared
    & can't think of details. So w/correct dx, you then take back to Er & regular
    Vet and calmly ask for refunds due to wrong dx, treatment & ineffective meds.

    If you need help, I will pay for the gas there & back, EBN has helped me and I
    want to pay it forward, please do not hesitate to say so...it is done.

    Let me know, Honey...we've got to do due diligence for your baby, both of you
    have suffered enough! I am spitting nails and wanting to gnaw on a**meat like
    a...well, like a bulldog!

    you are too kind! I got teary eyed. I will have to speak to my hubby about taking him to another vet within the next week or two. We spent almost 200 with this last visit at banfield. I'm suppose to give Sampson 2 baths a week with his medicated shampoo. Maybe ill wait to see if it helps by next week. Do you think I should try another food other than the one I'm currently switching him to (blue buffalo grain free puppy food). Maybe a non poultry food?

    You can go to Walmart, get virgin, organic Coconut Oil and smear it lightly over the
    raw areas, it will help heal, soothe & protect his skin~it won't harm him. Then put
    a lightweight T-shirt to protect him if he scratches himself. Dip some of the CO out
    and use that so as not to contaminate the jar, you can give him a teasp in his food
    1 x daily and in 2 weeks, give him a teasp 2 x daily. It'll heal internal problems and
    strengthen immune system.

    i actually already give him CO, I use the nutiva brand. He absolutely loves the stuff! I rub it on his tummy for his tummy rash that he gets, and it will be gone within hours! I've been a little worried about using it on his skin now because of the medicated shampoo. I don't know if it would disrupt the medication. But I just started giving almost a tablespoon with his food I started with 1/4 tsp. he would eat the entire thing if he got a hold of it hahaha

    I would, maybe Fromms or NIV Limited...let me look at that for you.
    Depending on your time available, you might give him home cooked bland diet
    while deciding on what food & stop giving the BB...poultry is a common allergy
    for many bullies. You might get a refund for the BB even tho opened & used.
    Lisa has a simple recipe she'll share that she makes & feeds her bullies.

    I know you're shaken, heartbroke & worried sick but hang in there!

    I'd wait to use that shampoo until another Vet approves, I don't trust those other yahoos!

    See what Lisa recc'mends or Sherry...@Sherry ​to bath him.

    Get on Amazon.com. Order some Richard's anti bacterial tea tree oil shampoo and a slicker brush. Shampoo once a week. Gently use the slicker brush twice a day off possible. Definitely once a day. Give him a vitamin E supplement twice a day, 4 times a week. Give him a super B complex supplement twice a day too. The E will help heal the skin, the B will boost his immune system. The slicker brush will improve blood flow to the skin, remove dead cells and help to distribute the natural body oils.

    If you want, ask your doctor fit a script for simplicef. It's an antibiotic for skin infections. But it's not 100% necessary. The tea tree oil it's the best thing for it. The simplicef is really just a booster.

    His hair is going to fall out in the beginning. The dead needs to go away before the new can start. Don't worry about it.

    I've had dogs with all kinds of skin issues walk in my door. They all walk out with beautiful, soft, shiny coats.
