Hi there I’ve been a proud mom to a wonderful 5 year old bulldog named angus within the last 6 months we have hit a rough patch after being a perfectly health and fit boy he has become sick as a first time owner of a bulldog I’ve spent over 4k in lab test to see what wrong still no answers to what is wrong started off with a yeast infection to small bumps all over his body and now losing fur in small patches he is now scratching at his face to where is is starting to scab please went to a healthy 90 pound boy to who is weighing 45 pounds with a strong appetite still but continue to losing weight

So sorry you're going through this. 4k is a lot for lab tests. I'm sure the first thing they did was full blood work? Liver, kidneys and pancreas is fine? Any changes in diet?

Has he been evaluated for Cushing's? Your boy checks several boxes with the exception of weight loss which is not usually associated with Cushings. The recurrent infections could be due to a compromised immune system due to some other issue. I would have him see a internal medicine Vet. In the mean time supplement his food with something like Probiotic Miracle.
What food are you feeding? Have you tried changing foods? Are you giving him any treats...and what kind?
