    Exclamation Kooper: skin still horrible and runny stool!

    So after two weeks of being on BB wilderness, Koopers skin has only gotten worse even with steady treatments. Also his stool is runny, i honestly do not think it should be runny after a week on JUST BB. Last night i decided to switch his food to Royal Canin, which im very skeptical. I really want to use Fromm. I have heard nothing but good about this product. Im gonna take the RC back to petco and try to find Fromm. Any suggestions for where to find it in So Cal??Click image for larger version.

    Oh my goodness! Poor baby! You can order Fromm Online from Petflow! Has he been seen by the vet at all to confirm this is a food allergy?? It almost looks like he could have some kind of infection! I am sure others will be along shortly with more advice, good luck! I hope you find a cure for him soon!

    Ummm, I'm agreeing w/Lauren, this looks like infection (staff?), I'd take him in.

    Not normally a fan of antibiotics but sometimes they're needed. Just because BB
    is a good food does not mean that it's good for him, what is the protein source?

    Poor 'lil man...I feel for him and I know you are just worried sick, take him in, Hon.
    He needs relief, asap...probably steroids too...he will be hyper & thirstier so be
    prepared, he'll pant more too. Always taper off steroids slowly.

    Let us know, I'll be praying, sending love & comfort!

    RIP beloved boy.

    those red spots look almost exactly like what chum had on his head..The vet said it was pyoderma and gave him an antibiotic which didn't really work. then he put hm on steroids for a week. They went away after a few weeks but im not sure exactly what caused them. The vet thought it was food or environmental allergy but I still thought it was a reaction to his rabies shot...either way good thing Koopers going to the vet! Keep us posted!

    Poor Kooper!!! He definetely needs to go back to the vet, poor baby. Maybe start looking into ways to boost his immune system on top of the food switch. I think just about anything is better than RC.. I hope you baby is feeling better soon. I would be having heart failure!!

    I would take him to he vet, that looks pretty bad. Try the FROMM Pork and Peas, ours are doing well on it.

    Poor Kooper. It is difficult to tell from the pictures but one of our dogs had mites when he was younger which caused spots and loss of hair. His spots were not that large, so I may be way off base, but talk to your vet when you take Kooper in. It is a quick and simple test and you will know one way or the other in just a few minutes. I sure hope Kooper gets better soon!

    I had to go earlier but whatever he's dealing with, his immune system isn't functioning
    as it should. He needs a good probiotic and it might take awhile to get his gut healthy.
    I'd give coconut oil both internally and can rub on those areas too, it's anti microbial,
    anti bacterial, anti inflammatory, anti fungal, etc. Start w/1 teasp stirred into food
    daily for a couple weeks then up to 1 teasp each meal. You can buy at Walmart, it's
    about $10-12 for 16 oz. Give him Kefir or unsweetened plain yogurt too, a dollop as
    a topper on food or treat, midday or evening. Krill oil is great unless he's allergic to
    salmon. I would try Fromms Pork n Peas even if you have to order it before I put him
    back on RC (could have contributed to lowered immune system), let us know. GOD bless!

    Oh, my... poor Kooper, and poor Kooper's Mommy... you must be worried sick! I would get him to the vet ASAP... it may not even be a food related problem. I always found with my Clyde, who had many medical issues in the course of his life, that the quicker I took him in to our vet, the better! With regard to the Fromms, it is a great food! I feed my Morgan Fromms and he LOVES it! The Fromms website has a locater service for their food... simply put in your zip code
    and stores carrying Fromms will come up. You can order online, too, from Petflow. Please keep us updated on Kooper.
    Oh, one other thing ~plain canned pumpkin (NOT the pie filling) is great for loose stools. Just add a tablespoon to every meal... they love it. Works like a charm :-)
