SKIN PROBLEMS

Bullies suffer from time to time with skin problems, sometimes its as mild as hives (small bumps on the skin) which can be treated with Piriton (or supermarket own brands which are exactly the same but a lot cheaper) Some suffer badly with feet usually made worse by wet grass, the feet are red and sore with blisters or more often cysts that are pus filled  between the toes (Interdigital Cysts). Many bullies bad feet has been treated with great results with a product called Camrosa which really does work a treat on bullies - Link to Camrosa  or Herbaticus Supliments also work with bullies, read on for more information.

Some skin problems are much more severe and leaves not just your bully in distress but also very distressing to watch him suffer, many people have had to resort to letting there bully go to Rainbow Bridge to stop the awful suffering. I had read a few stories of bullies suffering with severe skin and with the use of a herbal treatment managed to get them better again, but it wasn't until I was asked to help with such a case that I witnessed the extreme distress it causes and the wonderful results of the herbal treatment.

In April 2008 I was asked to help with Sonny a three year old male bully who had developed open sores around his body the worst was his neck, (pictures at bottom of page) the sores were open and weeping some were filled with pus he was in an awful state, he was depressed and very sad, his owner said he had been loosing weight but was eating well. I had him stay with me and had to wash his bedding daily because the blood and crap from his wounds were dripping constantly. His vet had originally treated him with Fusiderm which had no effect at all, in desperation the owner spoke to Bull Terrier Welfare whom his friend had recommended and he was advised a very good Dermatologist. Sonny was taken to see the specialist who prescribed him Marbocyl - 50mg a day, Clomicalm - 80mg a day - Malaseb baths daily to start with a  Humilac rinse and Stronghold monthly. Although a good start I knew from the stories I had read that this wasn't going to be enough, it may cure the now but this problem would rear its ugly head again pretty much after the Marbocyl had finished. Sonny's owner was referred to me as he was looking for him to have some proper care that he couldn't give him at that time, so I took him in and started to try and get him better, I contacted a couple of people whom I knew had been through this and then spoke to Sonny's owner who agreed to try the Herbal remedies. I contacted Herbaticus and ordered the supplements Sonny needed, they came the next day and we started them along side the conventional medicine and a good daily dose of my special bully smoothie ( Smoothie recipe) and a raw food diet of Tripe, Chicken Wings and Minced Beef. and fish. Within 3 days of Sonny taking the supplements along with the conventional medication and change of diet I was able to stop the Clomicalm as Sonny was so very much brighter in himself, where at first he didn't want to get up to greet anyone he just wanted to be left alone in his crate he was now excited to see people and wanted to sit up on the sofa for a cuddle, it was difficult to stroke him because I didn't want to touch his sore bits I was scared I might hurt him but within a week his skin was drying up and all weeping had stopped, by the end of the first week he was being bathed twice a week and by the end of week 3 just once a week. After 9 days Sonny's skin was beginning to heal it was dry to touch I could stroke him all over without fear of hurting him, he was able to wear a rope lead and go out for a walk and what's more he wanted to go out, he wanted to play and run around he was just a different dog altogether. 4 weeks on and his skin was healing beautifully, his fur had started to grow back and Sonny is a very happy, cheeky, normal bully boy who loves to play, run and really enjoys his walks, he can now wear a soft collar without any irritation. At 6 weeks Sonny's fur had grown back there is still a slight discoloration in some of his fur and that will hopefully change once he has moulted.

 It will be a couple of months yet before Sonny is completely healed and he will have to take the Wow supplement daily but will be able to stop the others, and stick to a good raw diet he should be fine, having Sonny stay has shown me how devastating it is to watch a dog suffer such an horrendous skin condition and I really understand how people make the painful decision to release a dog from such misery, but that there is light at the end of the tunnel and treatment available. Herbaticus is a wonderful treatment that is saving bullies lives, Fanny Philbert at Herbaticus is an extremely knowledgeable lady who will happily run along side whatever your Dermatologists suggests or without conventional medication whatever the case may be. Fanny is very helpful and will guide you through your dogs recovery.
