Recommended Tests For Non-Responsive Bulldog  Skin Problems

Unfortunately, I don’t have enough information about the case, but all bulldog skin problems require a step-by-step approach.

To offer you a customized treatment suggestion, your vet will need to conduct a few diagnostic tests

Listed here are some of the most common diagnostic tests for bulldog skin disease.

  1. Skin Scrape: to look for mites
    1. Demodex
    2. Sarcoptic Mange
  2. Cytology: to see if there are abnormal cells
    1. Bacteria (rods gram-negative or cocci gram-positive)
    2. Yeast organisms
    3. Inflammatory white blood cells
    4. cell associated with autoimmune disease or cancer
  3. Culture (Bacteria): typing the bacteria and matching antibiotics
    1.  MRSA (multidrug-resistant staph)
    2. Typical Stap bacteria
    3. Atypical gram-negative bacteria
  4. DTM (fungal): culture for dermatophyte (ringworm)
