    Default Ruffled hair???

    Ok so I have a question I need some help.. I've noticed Zeus hair has been a bit ruffled. His hair is not long obviously but in some areas it's raised. I don't know if I'm explaining my self. I've checked for fleas so has my husband we don't see anything. (He's white) also I've noticed he's been scratching a bit more. Laying on the floor and just rubbing his back on the carpet grass etc.. Any idea what this can be. He's never had fleas, I can't see any on him. Can they get bug bites. Can this be allergies he's never really had allergies or this happen to him before. Yes I'm planning on taking him to the vet for his shots and a check up but that will probably be this weekend. Any comments will be appreciated thank you..

    Are there any bumps or marks on the skin?

    Most bullys like to just roll around on their back especially after waking up or playing.

    Is it possible to post a pocture too?

    Buster has ruffled hair every once in a while, are you giving Zeus salmon oil?

    its really not that noticeable. I tried to look at his skin it seems normal. I thought maybe there were bumps but when I look at it there's nothing there. But I'll try to take a pic to see if u can tell. He usually rolls on things but now with his ruffled hair I guess I'm just paranoid.

    I think I know what you are saying, I've seen it before. Never too much of a reason and couldn't find any sores or nothing, but usually went away as fast as it came.

    He could be causing the skin to swell with the scratching? Could certainly be allergies, especially if accompanied by the itchies..., sounds like a vet trip is a great idea this weekend especially if it doesn't improve.

    In the meantime you could try giving benedryl 1mg per pound to see if you can give him some relief.

    No I don't give him any. Do I just put it on his food. What brand or where do I get it.

    @ZeusCsmommyI give Buster 2 squirts in his breakfast. It comes in different size bottles it's called Grizzly Salmon Oil, Amazon has it for great prices.

    This is the link on EBN for it. http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...n-Oil-Fish-Oil

    Ok so idk if you all can tell the weird thing is that it's only in his mid section. It starts where his rib cage ends and it ends at his hips. It's not on his arms or chest or neck or legs. Idk how to tag 2bullymama so she can see the pic

    I tagged Christine so she'll see these. Benadryl is a pill, Salmon oil is liquid. You know those look like little hives, little bumps. @Davidh is right maybe just give it a day and see if they get any worse.
