my English Bulldog has broken out in lots of bumps that are dry, scaly

Answer Question

Then as the scales come off so does the hair. Can I apply hemp oil on these spots to help heal them?

I’m wondering if it is eczema in dogs that is causing this. He sheds unmercifully but is active and eats his food. He has stopped taking walks..absolutely refuses to go. We have a lot of stress in our house this past month as my husband developed cancer and then had a stroke. We have a lot of dr. appointments and treatments to go to so Dudley is home a lone more often. However, he did have these spots before but not this bad

I am sorry for all of the stress your family is going through. Hemp oil is not typically used as a topical medication. I would not recommend it to be used on these sores. Give the hemp oil orally at a dose of 1 teaspoon daily. It would be best to have Dudley seen by a veterinarian to prescribe antibiotics for the sores. I realize your personal circumstances may make this difficult. The use of a sulfur based shampoo on a weekly basis and a topical antibiotic salve twice a day to the sores may be helpful as a first aid measure.
