Pulling coat out

by Robert
(Porterville, ca, usa)

My great pyrenees keeps pulling hair from his butt, and has labored breathing, but is letting better with labored breathing. At first was lethargic, but is getting better, I just dont want him to keep pulling his hair. This is the first time he has done this. His hind end is red. He was born in 2011. I am looking for a reminder. He will eat rice and boiled chicken, butt not his kibble. He is drinking water as well.

You need to get your dog to a vet, try a wholistic vet. He is not comfortable. There could be any number of things going on with him.

In reference to feeding him:

Rice is a filler so try turkey (low fat) and pure pumpkin until you can get him to a vet.

Kibble is high in starches so fillers. You'll notice how much he poops. It is sprayed in oil so becomes rancid as time goes once the bag is opened. They drink more water than a raw fed dog because their bodies have to break down the hard processed kibble. Here is an article for you to copy and paste into your URL:
