Dog loosing hair

November 16th, 2006, 07:56 AM
I have a 1yr old AKC english bulldog. He has started to loose alittle hair in some spots. He recently had fleas but they are all gone and I have changed his food. He also has some small bumps. At first I thought it was from the fleas or maybe from the change of food. Any feed back would be great.

Depending on how you're treating the flea issue could lead to the answer of why his hair is out in patches. If you're using a collar, powder from a store or a wash from a store - don't. These products are extremely harmful to your pet, and can be worse for them in the long run even if they do kill the fleas up front. Discuss flea control options with your vet if you haven't already, both of my dogs are on Frontline Plus, a monthly topical ointment that goes between their shoulder blades and keeps them flea free. Good luck, I hope all turns out well :pawprint:
