    Default HELP.....

    Hi all, had my baby for a week now. Some ups and downs.
    I need some advice:

    1. Been to vet last friday eve. All good according to vet.

    2. I notice the following in his head:

    Its like a dried scalp or dried skin that is hard. Size is varied. Found a few spots at the head.
    The vet had prescribed a lotion to put in the area but will need to scratch the area hard.
    What do you think that could be?

    3. Could the above resulted from allergy? I serve acana whilst the breeder gave royal canine

    4. A pet shop owner told me it could be allergic. As acana may not work with the humidity and temperature in my country. He recommend royal canine.

    5. My bully's stool is still soft. I have cut down his intake to 1/2 a cup 3 times a day (vs recommended by the packaging of 4 cup per day to be served 3 times a day).

    I wonder if any can recommend:
    1. What happen to his skin
    2. Any recommended medicine
    3. Do i need to change food?

    Pls help
    Thank you a zillion

    Do you mean that you have chanced his food in weeks time? it's alway better to chance very slowly, mixing the the new food with the old food little by little. Acana is much better than RC, but still there can be ome ingredients that don't suit him.

    Royal Canin is terrible quality food. Acana is much better. Having said that, the bumps look like typical allergy pustules. Your pup may have seasonal allergies to things like grass and pollen. If he is allergic to the food, it would be the protein or grain.

    I do not think Acana uses cheap fillers, so I would find out what the main protein and switch to an Acana brand with the main ingredient as chicken (since Royal Canin bulldog formula is chicken based). Acana "Wild Prarie" is a no carb, chicken based formula that should work.

    For now, while you do the food trials, ask the vet for some antihistamine tablets or ask him what dosage of human antihistamine you can give your pup.

    Maybe try giving him bland diet for a few days until his poo firms up. Then slowly introduce the Acana again. This sounds like he's having a hard time adjusting to the food, between the new home stress and the food switch it's caused havoc to his little tummy.

    Shame on your breeder for not providing you with some food to do the transition with.

    @bullmama,
    Question: you refer to hamburger or chicken breast for bland diet. May i ask what do you mean by hamburger? Is it ok if i boiled a minced beef (is it the same)?
    If i were to use the chicken breast, do i need to cut it into pieces? Smaller pieces maybe to enable him eating it easier?
    Thank you again

    Hambrrger is ground beef... if minced meat is plain beef with no seasonings or anything added, that is it. And, yes if you use chicken cut it into small pieces
