my pitty having skin fur problem

shes 7 months old and i brought her to the vet and they just told me it could be alergies or fleas but she dont have fleas i got her on flea and tick meds anyway, but the vet was really no help as they took my 150 dollars for the visit lol. so maybe by the pictures i post someone might have went through similar.
her belly
back of her back legs

Could be allergy. What type of food are you feeding? These dogs typically have a grain and chicken allergy. It's best to have them on a grain free diet. My boy started showing signs around the same age as yours. We switched to grain free and no chicken and he's finally all cleared up.

i was feeding her natural balance at first then the vet on my first visit reccomended purina for some reason. i think this might be the cause seeing alot of bad reviews on it but not sure if it was the shampoo or the food they gave me both pretty much lol

Purina is junk. There's a sticky in the health and nutrition section on dog food. It helps you rate it. I would definitely get off Purina ASAP.

Not mine but I've read other posts with similar looking spots. My boy gets really red around his eyes and mouth and his feet get red between the pads. And he shook his head a lot like there was water in his ears. After being on here I read that those could be signs of allergies so I decided to change to a non chicken base formula. Then when the brand I use came out with grain free I got it and it was a major difference in him.

its most likely the food i am gonna switch that up, she was shaking her head alot as well like you said your dog did. i figured it was from swimming or the bath lol. but maybe thats a sign is there a timeframe that it would clear up or is it a long waiting process. to find out. and is there anything that can be applied to get rid of it or help with it where shes not scratching it

Well it took Cain a while to completely clear up. But I did different proteins to find the one that worked best for him. Results of switching food can take a few weeks. He was on a fish formula for a few months and was better but still not good. My grain free offers three proteins, I wound up at beef and its worked the best. I just have to watch what else I give great wise. We had to cut out everything and I make sure to check everything he gets before I buy. I've started making my own dehydrated treats for him that he loves. He stopped shaking his head within about a week to 2 weeks if I remember right. And the redness cleared up over a few weeks and his hair came back where he'd lost some around his eyes. Cain has a flea allergy-I think and my vet thinks also- and he's been scratching himself raw and getting some lumps. Fleas have been bad this year and i finally have them under control. I use cortisone cream on him and it instantly helped. You could try that and see if that helps with itching. I'm sure others will chime in with other options and suggestions also.

it's very possible but i'm not convinced it's an allergy.
could you take a close up pic of the bumps? and clear as possible.
if it's only on her belly and legs where there is only a little hair, there are other possibilities. while you are figuring this out, you should wash all her bedding in fragrance free detergent and give her an oatmeal bath.

Mya's food allergies flared up as just a rash on her belly. Still don't know what she's allergic to, but we stick to the 4Health Grain Free Fish, Beef and Turkey based food and she's been fine. So switch to something grain free that is based on fish, duck, turkey, beef, even lamb. Those seem to be the most "hypo" allergenic food bases.

It took me forever to narrow in on Mya's allergies because we didn't know she was having 2 different reactions. Change one thing at a time and wait at least 2 weeks before changing something else.

What I'd do is pick up some Dreft or similar "hypo"allergenic detergent and wash everything like JoKealoha suggested, then do the food switch. Unless your bag of food is already low then do it the other way around.

Food or fleas. look into a raw diet or a grain free kibble..as. may have been mentioned. blue dogs in many breeds tend to have weak immune systems which can be boosted with good diet..pleanty of exercise..and good rest. purina...i won't use..corn...big no no for bulldogs. most have corn ot grain allergies .
