    Owwwww!!! The poor little guy! He sure has had a rough couple of months! Sending warm thoughts and prayers for speedy recovery! I think you're right about the Ball DT's...

    Our vet even called us later in the evening to ask how Bentley was doing and we told her the treatment has slowed down his itching. This morning it did not look as inflamed as the picture shows. The wife will see him as she gets home before me and she'll see how he looks.

    Bentley has not played any ball while he has been on injured reserve. Maybe this is his way of showing DT's.

    Poor boy. Taz often got dermatitis and was treated with medication and an ointment. Since he started hills zd prescription his been ok better than before. I've started him on coconut oil and i think thats help his skin issues.

    hope for a quick recovery for Bentley.

    Yes I told her just that. I got to admit I really love our vet and I am glad she was on at the time because she took care of him rather quickly. I did recommend her as a bully vet.

    Our Bentley's lesions have dried up and do not look as inflamed as above. But he still has the itching which we gave him Benadryl and it really quieted down. We still do not know what caused it so we can isolate/get rid of whatever it is that caused it.

    Thank you. Bentley's activity is already limited. The medicine seems to help and he is not scratching as much.

    Thanks David. The medicine over the weekend really helped. It is not as inflamed. He does have the occasional itch though.

    Good on your wife and those meds get right on it, Group Hug! xoxoxo
    Thank you Carol. I really appreciate it.

    It may have been painful because of his scratching...but I think he was itching more than hurting. He is my little OCD Boy...Mr. Barky Barky....Fart Boy...The poopinator...Just terms of endearment.

    Thank you. He's doing much better. Jus an occasional itch and the lesions have dried up for now. We are afraid to what we will come home to since there is no one there to tell him not to scratch the itch.. We are giving Benadryl to him though which seems to help.

    I agree. I think it is a tad hotter in your neck of the woods. Hot and humid here.

    Oh Bentley, having a rough patch of luck aren't you pup! I hope he feels better. Ruckus had a hot spot pop up on his face seemingly out of no where once. To prevent him from scratching when we weren't around, I filed his nails a little rounder than usual with a nail file -- sually i just clip them - and the dullness helped.
