    Hi same happened to my bulldog, until we ran into this dog food call "Avoderm". Within 2 weeks of changing to Avoderm, her coat started coming back and by 1st month she had a nice shiny coat! I'm not saying it'll work for everyone the same, but to us, this is miracle food for her coat! Good luck
    p.s.
    i add scoop of pumpkin& non-fat yogurt for her digestion also

    What food is she eating? Any changes recently ( laundry powder etc ) is her worming up to date, does she licks her paws? Or scratching? Have you checked through her hair for any hotspots?
    As it was already suggested it looks like allergy related -you just need to rule out what exactly have caused it

    Though she is young-she may need her anal glands cleaned, her tail pocket(if she has one) cleaned. She may have gotten a bite, hotspot, mange, food allergy-I know I have said it so many times, but the first thing I always try for things like that is NU Stock.

    I have been trying different foods with Miss Daisy and she’s currently going through the transition to Taste of the Wild. Everything else seemed to make her go to the bathroom (number 2) a lot!

    She did have a 2 baths back to back days because of having accidents in her kennel. Daisy is 15 weeks old, so we are in the process of doing all her shots. Middle of April is when we’re scheduled back to the vet. She doesn’t scratch as much as it seems to be biting the area. Yes, she licks her paws. What does that mean? She has spent the last couple days outside really exploring the yard and getting into things, so maybe that has something to do with it. What are hotspots? Try for NU Stock? How do you clean the anal glads and tail pocket? I usually use unscented baby whipes to washed her faces and in between her rolls.

    I’ve very new to owning a puppy so every little thing is freaking me out! Sorry for all the questions, but I appreciate all the feedback!

    Look on the HOME page, on the right side. The English Bulldog Learning Center. You will see all the helpful things listed. Paw licking is a sign of food allergy. Check by feeling up under her tail, to see if there is an area(like a hole of skin underneath) for a tail pocket.

    no worries on the questions -- it is why we are here!

    Next vet visit have them check the spot.... since she is young I was thinking it it might be mange @Manydogs -- lynn would you agree?

    It could be mange-that is why I mentioned Nu Stock-if it is not hereditary mange-it would clear it up.

    Poor sweet little girl! Likely it is a flare up or skin infection, but a skin scrape to rule out mange may be a good idea. Especially since she is so young still, it is a little early for her to have allergies. Only other thing I can think of is maybe some of the shampoo didn't get rinsed off on her last bath causing an itchy, or a reaction to the shampoo you are using.

    I asked her dog trainer last night and he thinks it's just a skin irritation but to keep an eye on it. When we go back to the vet I'll be sure to have her check it out. Thanks for all the replies!
