    poor little thing ,looks so angry those sores,annie has the same looking sores but not as bad and they are only on her belly and armpits,they are clearing very nicely now ,have you considered raw feeding?,i know a lot of bully owners dont agree with it,but the beauty of raw is you know exacyly what your dog is eating,his immune system is really struggling with all the meds hes taken which may clear symptoms but will not sort out the underlying problem,i know there are some excellent kibbles around and most dogs do well on them but if a dog shows these sort of symptoms then i believe its time to rethink the feeding regime,its just a thought ,you may be surprised with the results of raw ,best wishes for you and your poorly bully,karen

    You have gotten great advice, I cannot give any more. I hope your baby heals up fast, that just looks miserable. Welcome to the board too and YES please keep us up to date on what is going on. Even if your vet said not to go to the dermatologist just yet I say going now certainly cant hurt. (Remember your vet wont make money off of you once you go to the specialist so maybe there is a reason behind what he is saying?) Hate to be so harsh but some vets are really just in it for the money. Also make sure you find yourself a good bulldog vet. Bulldogs have such diff problems than other breeds and a reg vet may completely miss many things that should be obvious. We have a list of recommended vets on our homepage, check there to see if you have any near you perhaps.

    I agree with the above. Find a dermatologist. Do you have a school of vet. medicine in your area, that's another place to go!

    good suggestion.. that is how we found Dukes dermatologist. we go to the university of Penn. it is a school for vet medicines.. they teach the students as they work on your dog. so the prices are a bit cheaper and I feel they get extra attention from the vet

    We just gave our boy a bath with sulfur/lime dip (stinky rotten egg smell), cleaned his crate, his play area, removed everything except crate (no plastic bed pan and bedding) and nylabone. We are now on a mission to figure this out and find out what is triggering all this. Looking for a dermatologist in the Houston area. Would this be a vet dermatologist that I should be looking for?

    he is so so cute!! Yes you want to find a vet dermatologist..

    also just want to add. make sure you dry him super thorough when he is done in the bath .. take towels under his arms and legs .. any added moisture will add to the problem.

    Poor little guy.. does it seem painful to him?? I am surprised they haven't given him some type of low dose steroid to help clear this up. ( again I am not an expert just going on what Duke went through )

    one other thing that really helped us uncover things.. the dermatologist had us keep a journal.. if you change food you write it down, if you take him outside and he comes back in and things flare up you write it down .. etc.. this becomes a huge help to the vet to try to pinpoint what is going on.

    things will get better but I really think you need to get him to a dermatologist who deals mainly with skin issues to help!

    Looks like what Norm had when he had MRSA. Have the vet check the scrapings for that. I would find a holistic vet. That's who cleared up Normans.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    Awww poor baby! I hope he gets better soon and I know your vet said he's too young for a dermatologist, but if it keeps getting worse and whatever the vet is doing isnt working...you need to see a specialist. Please post pics and updates when you figure something out!

    What a sweet baby face he has!! Sounds like you are doing everything you possibly can to try to figure this out. I would follow the advice on here and find a vet dermatoligist. They have never steered me the wrong way on here!!
