Hello All, and I hope everyone (and their masters) have a wonderful Christmas.

Down to business:
Goliath is a 10 years old Bouvier...wonderful temper, and magestic in stature.
Our female companion Sheba died about a month ago...she was the "firebrand" in the family and kept things hopping.

Goliath NOW has lost some fur at his withers, and has little bunps on his body that are very...VERY itchy.

We've tried washing, and peroxide (left his fur and nice red color) and polysporin.

Any and all help would be apprciated.

Welcome! I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your other dog.:(

Do not put hydrogen peroxide on your dog. This can damage tissue.

IF he has bumps all over, it could be an allergy or parasites, even mites, or something else entirely.

I suggest a vet visit. Your dog is rather elderly and no telling what his problem is.

Could you make your font a little smaller please? :p

Agree a vet visit would be helpful! And the font makes it feel like you're shouting!
