Hi everyone

this is our first post so please be kind if this has been discussed before…

Our male English Bulldog has just approached 3. He’s always been on a dry diet with only treats being freshly cooked chicken.

8 weeks ago, out of nowhere he started to hurriedly lick his back paws, almost as if something had started to aggitate him. This was quickly followed by a series of scoots across the carpet.

immediately we thought fleas? Worms?Anal glands…With his worming and flea course completely up to date, we took him the vets to get his anal glands expressed. The vet did outline they were full and got to work. This must have been around 3 weeks ago.

With the agitated paw licking followed by a small scoot still going on this really started to upset us. He looks so agitated when it comes around. As a final try we got some tablets off the vets which deal with irritation, and also got some specialist shampoo called ‘Coatex’ which we have been using twice weekly.
The tablets do appear to calm him down, but once worn off starts again. This suggests once the tablets run out (4 more days) we are back to square one!

Can anyone help?

Hello welcome to BDB!

Sorry to hear that your Bulldog is having these issues. The culprit may be the chicken you are feeding him. Many bulldogs are allergic to chicken causing itching and irritation on the skin. Also chemicals in carpet can cause this, as well. What did your vet have to say about it?

I Think bulldogs have many issue weather it's english or french bulldogs. Some times they have skin issue and some times shedding and tail issues. I have 3 french bulldog because of my kids. I have to take a lot of care for these frenchies.
