    Default Scale like bumps



    Has any other bullys had this problem if u have please give me some advice.
    Ronnie had this for 4 months now all down his back they are lumpy like warts that are scaling down his back. We've changed his food to wainwrights no grains tried malaseb and it seems like our vets have no idea. Running out of options. He's lost his fur where the lumps are. It's not a clear photo but if u look close you can see the wart like bumps.

    I would appreciate any advice

    What shampoo so you use?

    I would try brushing daily to open the skin pores and add an oil to the diet, either coconut oil or salmon oil.

    Usually he would go to the groomers so whichever the used. Then we used malaseb. Now I'm using baby shampoo and it seems to have eased it but not got rid of it. Il get some oil and give that a try thank you

    Have Ronnie been scraped for mange?? Vegas got it out of know where last year. It caused bald spots and crusty skin.

    Is there any other symptoms? Itching maybe? I agree he's definitely got some sort of dermatitis, could be mange, staph, fungal.... That second picture looks really bumpy.

    I agree with @KMARINO , certainly get a second opinion and maybe a skin scrape. Poor little fella, at 4 months old that's so young to have all these bumps. Please keep us updated if you find out what it is.

    Definitely take him to another vet-or a dermatologist, as recommended. Is his skin dry-or oily? I don't see any dander. It looks like his sebaceous glands could be clogged-if he has oily skin
    Def. get a scraping done, and let us know what the opinion is! Best of luck.

    I cannot see photos due to be on computer at work, but it sounds like it could also be a staph infection... have your vet take a look.

    I agree w/the gang… I would have a scrape done to find out what is going on.
