skin January .jpgOliver March 2020.jpg
so it took over 9 weeks. Oliver had HORRIBLE skin issues. Raw, red, bumps. took him to vet had skin cytology done they wanted him to have surgery to remove all that is in picture one.
I did a lot of research and with the help of [MENTION=2894]2BullyMama[/MENTION] , we opted to go RAW, took him off low dose steroid, he is still on apoquel ( trying to wean him and switch to cytopoint ) and also been giving him fish oil, and Thorne Immune vitamins for dogs. ALL of his hair is back ( picture # 2) only thing he has is when he wakes his eyes are goopy so we are working on that. His skin is a miracle. He was bald on sides and raw and red on top. It made me cry to look at. We use Nu Stock for weeks. Our house smelled like a farm but it works! Jut wanted to share for anyone struggling as I know so many bullies do. I know each dog is unique and we have to find what works.
