If there are any experienced bulldog vets on this forum, I would love to hear their opinion.
    How much do you feed him? I see you are feeding land/rice... have you thought of switching to a grain free turkey or fish based food? It might help him lose some weight?

    I'm going to start this tonight in hopes that I see some improvement in a week or so! Thank you for sharing this with me. I would love see him better and back to himself again.

    I've tried switching him to a fish based food, but he will not touch it. I give him a cup and a half in the morning and another at night. Sometimes he won't touch his food for a day or two though.

    Yes like @2BullyMama said, keep us posted. Also she’s definitely right about getting him on a grain free diet. Every bit helps.

    Lessen to 1 cup per meal... add frozen green beans if you need a filler

    He probably isnít eating cause he doesnít feel well from the tail issue

    Please definitely try the oils before anything else. Helene is great with this information.

    I have no advice on this... my Willow has a tail pocket, but I use baby wipes to keep it clean. I hope that you can get this issue resolved soon!!!

    I would definitely change proteins as well as the essentials oils. Try grain free Duck as he doesn't like fish. I feed Zignature as it is supposed to be better for allergies but there are other good foods out there. Monty had terrible tail pocket problems and then had a deep infection that took months and months to clear up. He had already had a partial amputation and 'cosmetic' pocket surgery and that helped tremendously but then this deep infection took hold and it took forever to get it figured out. Once we did, we have had no problems since.
