Hey guys my bully has jsut recently been getting bumps allllll over his back that end up getting crusty and scabby and because of that has huge bald spots on his back. I’ve been giving him Benadryl and rubbing a prescribed cream from the vet on his back. I’ve also recently been rubbing coconut oil on his back. The vet had said it’s alergies to something so I switched his food from chicken to beef to see if it would help. Is there anything else I can do?

Is his food grain free? That is a common allergy. Did the vet test for mange? A little of that coconut oil in his food won't hurt anything either.

We switched our 11 month old pup to a salmon diet and added a little coconut oil to it in the morning feeding. Made a huge difference. Incidentally, we got her fixed around the same time and she had to wear the cone of shame for a week, so she wasn't able to bite and scratch her rear. Her fur grew back and she's stopped chewing on herself.

Hi there, my 2 year old pitty had the same problem since she was 6 months! I have always fed her a salmon diet with NO GRAINS; when i started to notice her itching it started with just itching & chewing on herself & her hair thinning . I did environmental testing & found out she is allergic to practically everything outside with the exception of all bugs ! I was doing allergy injections but they made it worse , to where she broke out with the same bumps that went crusty an caused the effected area to be bald. I gave up on going to my vet because she said it was a staf infection an kept her on prednisone , antibiotics & medicated baths for months with NO RELEAFE . Since then i have been able to control her out break by making her wear shirts when outside, apoquel, Benadryl, coconut oil & skin & coat vitamins daily, along with switching her food to a salmon skin & coat recipe she had finally been bump & itch free for 2 months ! Out of her 2 years ! As you can see in the picture her hair is still thin
