i have a american bulldog.. and he's got bumps on his skin and we went to the vet and they told me it was dead skin/dandruff, but i'm looking at it now it looks like little red bumps, is that how they look like? is there a specific shampoo that i can use
See its hard to tell without a picture link. I dont believe this forum will let you. If we could see a picture that would be great.
My chihuahua Lola would get bumps because she ate some cheese. I class that as an allergy and so we dont give it to her.
You need to assess if and where he has been. Was there any mosquitos or bugs that may have bit him? Could a bit of food you gave may have flared it up? What about a old/new bedding he is using? Check in and around the bedding for spiders or bugs that may have caused it.
I'm with Catlover. More than likely food allergies. Bulldogs are prone to food allergies. Do like the above, rid your dogs kibble of any corn, wheat, bi-products if you have not already. Other problems can be outdoor allergies pollen etc. Indoor cleaners, can be causes. Start with the food. Use a gentle shampoo.
One of the american bulldogs that we had in our rescue had black heads almost all over his body. Every weekend we would all take time just pulling out these blackheads most were on their way out.
My sons friends bulldgo also had skin allergies. They did not understand the food thing, so they were bringing their dog in monthly for cortizone shots. Buying whatever kibble was on sale at the grocery store. Innova, Natural Balance, Artemis, are just the beginning of names of good dog food.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
I have two shar-pei, and they are great dogs but the breed tends to have a lot of allergies. Micky, my 8 month old male, can eat anything. However my 2 year old female, Dashia, can only have lamb and rice food, and requires bacon grease every other day. My motherís shar-pei had the same diet with a little less bacon grease. I was lucky my mother had 13 years of experience with the breed and knew what to do. She had me start with just dry dog food, no table scraps. Start slowly giving new things to the dog and watch for a reaction. When you know what your dog is allergic to you just donít let them have it. My male can eat anything but my female has the have lamb for her birthday dinner.
