    After trying the ProHex shampoo every second night for almost a month now, we went back to the vet today. The vet confirmed this time our boy has Pyoderma and prescribed Cephalexin 500 mg antibiotics 2x a day for 3 weeks. We are also to continue with the ProHex shampoo every second night only to wash his paws this time and to make sure we rinse and dry them very well. Since we’ve had an excessive amount of rain for July/August the grass has been wet and soggy and became a breeding ground for bacteria which started in his paws. Hopefully this will clear him up.

    Hi sorry to high jack. I was just reading along So i just got my first bulldog pup the other night and he has been having Diarrhea. I just started feeding him this Wellness brand grain free dog food. Its for puppy but the ingredients has Chicken and turkey. Any specific reason chicken free is better? Thanks

    My pup Chapo has only been on this brand for one day. Im thinking of switching to Acana or Taste of the wild.

    In some cases It is how chicken is processed that causes the issue... but my girl was highly allergic to chicken so i had to avoid.

    As a pup.. it could be the amount of food or did you not do a slow transition from old to new?

    I just went to the store to buy some "Taste of the wild" Puppy food. I believe that was the brand his previous owner was eating.

    TOTW is a pretty good food... if he does well on it might be good to stick with it

    His first poop since I switched to TOTW looked pretty normal so i guess this might be something I will stick with.

    Did you do a slow transition to the new food? If not, this could be why he's having diarrhea. Bullies tend to be allergic to processed chicken found in kibble. You can give the new food some time, about a month or so to see how he does with it. I would suggest adding in some plain canned pumpkin with the food. It will help with the diarrhea, and will help the belly adjust to the new food. You don't want to just switch cold from one day to the next on food, causes digest upset

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Our Ellie was eating Blue Buffalo puppy when we noticed her hair was thinning up the middle of her back. We switched her food to Beneful, I know , but it worked. We also bathe her every week with Oster Oatmeal shampoo, it has a bulldog on the bottle. She has a beautiful coat and is at the perfect weight. Haven't experienced any hair loss since.
