Hi All -
Have any of your bulldogs ever been afflicted with alopecia? I took my 2-year-old to the vet yesterday, thinking he had demodex (which he had as a young puppy). The skin scraping did not find any mites, so the vet is thinking that it's alopecia. Is this a common problem? I know this breed has many skin ailments, but I've never seen this one.
The vet prescribed Otomax ointment to apply to topically the dark patches on his coat, and an antibiotic. She couldn't tell me how long it would take to cure this condition. Do any of you have any experience with this? I just need to know what to expect, and what you found to be helpful in treating it quickly.
Thanks so much for any suggestions you can give.
