    @Gwise

    Can be a few different things: Allergies (what are you feeding?) - could also be some form of mange (only a vet could test this with a scrape test) - they could also see if its something bacteria/fungal wise. More than likely its allergies.... does it itch? Look red, or scabby?

    could be seasonal flank alopecia. Call your vet, but I seem to remember that Melatonin can be used for this. I am not sure of dosage for your dogs weight though so check in with the vet.

    Yes, like @brutus77 said could also be seasonal flank alopecia - which happens alot with bullies. Allergy breakouts tend to red, pink, itchy. But Tyson once had something very similar and it spread all on his body in the most random places... it was also something bacterial. We did a low dose of meds, and medicated baths. Cleared up.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Blue had the exact same spots. It was a bacterial skin infection caused by allergies. The vet put him on simplicef for 21 days and it cleared right up. Haven't had any problems since. This was last June.

    Yes, please keep us posted. I would just do quick trip to the vet to confirm, and pick up some medicated shampoo too

    a tablespoon of yogurt every morning will clear that right up, I'd get him off the royal canin asap too.

    Agree, try and get him on a higher quality food - and grain free.

    Ours didn't do well on Royal Canin either. I would let a vet look at it, as others have said, it could be several things.
