We already do give him a spoonful of coconut oil daily. We may consider switching his food as well as he tends to be a little bit yeasty still on the Fromm.
    Yea, even though it is a great food may not be working for him.... look into Acana

    I purchased the following for Darla. Would it be okay?

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01A09JXNK

    I only plan on using this for her patches, snout, and paws.

    Ah so you use something more along the lines like this?

    Online Easy Ordering | Publix Super Markets

    Should I use the oil I already purchased for external and the can internally?

    Believe me your not alone.We are battling this exact thing and it is an allergy per our vet but most likely its seasonal,we were given genocine spray and sulfur shampoo.It has helped but its on going.Our girl is worse than our boy and she's never had this issue until or horribly humid summer here in Arkansas.

    def agree looks like staph my Sirius had it caught it early and only one or 2 small fur patches lost

    Vet says caused by an allergy most likely with something he ate treat, grandpa sneaking table food etc

    grain-free and possibly chicken free may be best bet

    and I must say Wow what a beauty you have there

    Following this one too as Nelly has the exact same thing right now. I thought it was hot spots, as did our boarder. Have been using duoxo pads when they crop up and they seem to relieve the scab but not save the fur. She also is in recovery from seasonal flank alopecia, widespread but mostly resolved after about a month with 6mg melatonin twice daily. (70 lbs) Seeing the vet in two days to look at this and her ears, which are crusty on one side, and pimply (bite like?) on the other. Suspect food allergy is going to be the outcome. She's on Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Venison and Sweet Potato. Also apple cider vinegar with dinner.

    Vet diagnosis is pyoderma and he prescribed 10 days of antibiotics.

    So many varieties of Acana, are there a few options that tend to work better for bulldogs?

    look at the grain free single protein options. I think the one I was leaning towards is pork/Squash
