    The only problem we have had with Bruno is his food allergies. It took us about 10 months to figure out what food worked for him. He would throw up almost every day, and the vet was not great at helping us figure out what was causing it. Finally, thanks to this forum, we discovered that it was likely a food issue. We switched to Fromm Salmon and Veg and he has been like a different pup ever since! Other than that, just some minor skin issues that has been able to be treated with meds and a gel.

    Vegas has epilepsy. He also had mange as a puppy (very small spot) Almost everything he's seen the dr for..it's epilepsy related.
    Orion may have allergies..she has some wicked tear stains. Her mama has Entropion, so that may be the cause.

    Maggie has had ear infections and used to vomit quite a lot ... that was until we discovered this site and learnt that Beneful was just awful, and switched her to FROMM 4*. Since then no more vomitting or ear infections, so I do believe that was food related.

    Otherwise, she has Masticatory Muscle Myositis every November since we got her, but not this year and once again I am hoping that the food switch to Fromm helped her here too. MMM is not a disease that is common in English bulldogs by the way.

    We've had some freak accidents, broken leg at 6 months that required orthopedic surgery and he swallowed a toy in April that had to be surgically removed. Other than that allergies that have been getting better and better with food changes. After the surgery in April Samson got his first ear infection which kept coming back, recently switched to Natures Variety dog food (potato and grain free) after hearing about jillh10's success with it controlling Linus' ear infections and so far (knock on wood) it seems to really be helping!

    @TessaAndSamson - and Linus is still infection free so I am hopeful Samson will have similar results.

    I have been very lucky, Silva had an infection to her incision line after her spaying but was cleared up very quickly with antibiotics. About a year ago she had a skin infection in one of her folds but cleared up after a few days with an antibacterial cream and that is it! Thank goodness! The only other issue is when something changes, when we moved or the kids went back to school she gets very stressed and had major diarrhea issues, she sometimes has to go on meds if it continues for longer then 5 days.

    Hi we have had a few problems with Bugzy, he would not keep the royal c puppy food down, it gave him diarrhea and he would vomit, so we switched him to nature natural, colds & alot of phlem, he got an infection that turned into a hot spot because we gave him frontline, he has dry flaky skin and we use oatmeal shampoo, now my worry is that he has developed two pink spots on his face next to his wrinkles and am not sure what it could be! i think it might be allergies but am not sure He is my first bully, so whenever i notice something wrong i get super worried!Help! any advice?

    @NICASFINEST I looked up the food you are feeding and its not bad, it's a 4 star (Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble is a great resource for dog food ratings) but some foods work better for bullys than others even if it is a good food. The foods that seem to work best among the members here are Fromm and Nature's Variety Instinct. I suggest trying Fromms Surf & Turf or one of their Four Star formulas or any of the Nature's Variety Instinct formulas. I have found between my own experiences and hearing what others say that food has a HUGE impact on skin issues. Make sure to keep the wrinkles clean! With the shampoos I like to use a fragrance/soap free soap because it is very gentle on the skin, fragrances and soaps dry out skin. I use Tropiclean and you can find it at major pet stores with Petsmart. Hope that helps!

    @NICASFINEST Benadryl dosage:

    - 30 lbs and smaller pets: 10 mg
    - 30-50 pound dogs: 25 mg
    - 50 lbs and larger dogs: 50 mg

    Did you find about the interaction issue with comfortis and ivermectin? I don't know anything about it but I hope you got an answer.
