    Unhappy Bully puppy hair loss on back

    Help! My 5 month old pup started losing fur in small circles on his back. Eventually,as u can see, it's turned to full patches. Not more itching than normal really. Tested negative for mange. Other than fur loss skin seems fine - no redness or rash. Has anyone seen this before???-image-jpg-image-jpg

    Is there any flaky skin around the circles?
    Lilly gets few once in a while (seasonal ) bath in medicated shampoo helps
    Did your pup is regularly wormed?
    It be best to bring him to the vet for closer inspection
    As it could be small bacterial skin infection , seasonal allergy , food allergy or ringworm

    Can you get a closer picture of the skin (not too close, just better to see the color/texture) also, how old is he and what are you feeding (brand and protein)

    I have seen th is before in another friend of mine with a male bulldog. It was a food allergy and the poor thing lost his hair all over his back; I mean full stretches of no hair. The owner switched his food and he had a reaction to it in this same manner. It was crazy; the hair eventually grew back once she put him back on his other food but I had never seen anything like it before. Some type of vitamin deficiency he wasn't getting from the new food. Good luck.

    Curly gets this from fleas and allergies. I started adding 1 fish oil pill a day to his diet and it helped out tremendously. We only see the missing patches if we don't give him pills for a week (blame my husband on that one since he forgets when I'm away on business).

    My white bully looks similar. He's on Fromm food since it was recommended on here.. Usually the salmon variety. I thought it was demodex creeping back but it's not scabby or anything. He seems to have grass allergy as well. Pollen is high here in OK. Any update on this dog? Suggestions?

    [QUOTE=Kimmieq;615443]. His hair has thinned a lot. Lots of shedding.

    Yep looks the same! His hair came back slowly but surely but now is starting to go through same thing again. Went to doggy dermatologist who confirmed it was allergies.

    Just do lots of good brushings !
