All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners nor the staff at EBN will be held responsible for the content of any messages, topics or posts.

    #2. Do not become confrontational or the topic will be closed
    #3. Do not advertise puppies or dogs for sale or post words of intent to sell. No breeder links OR breeder names are allowed on the sites, as we do not openly recommend any breeders. We cannot do this unless we were to periodically investigate breeders for quality and living conditions, because not all breeders are what they claim to be on the internet.

Fundraisers for rescue English Bulldogs are welcome so rescues and volunteers, please continue to share any fundraisers for your rescue.

    If you are not sure if your post would be deemed appropriate, please contact one of our staff members to find out if it is allowed. Usually though, if you are questioning it, then you probably should not post it.

    Many of our members offer advice on health issues. You should always seek the advice of your veterinarian with any information you find here, and EBN cannot be held accountable for any misinformation or bad advice given as each bulldog owner has different experiences.

      This is my first day as a member on this site, and am also still unclear about the navigation. However, our older bully, Diesel, experienced head shakes after we first rescued him. The vet we used, while a good doctor with an excellent reputation, was not really familiar with the EBAY breed. She had him on seizure medication and tranquilizers and, needless to say, he was a zombie. We could not stand it, so we found a clinic that had a bully specialist. He took one look at Diesel and correctly explained to us that the head tremors were not seizures per se, but were something typical of the breed. We weaned Deez off the drugs and replaced the treatment with distraction. His tremors are infrequent now (usually in the evening, if he experiences one) and we immediately distract him with a tiny training treat and the shaking stops. He's back to being our aging, but healthy, happy Bully! Hope this is helpful.

      My bulldog - Punk'N - does the head moving side to side - like she is trying to bite something in the air. My vet says they are seizures and has her on a low dosage of phenobarbital. This has made her hyper and she still does the head bobbing.

      I will tag @Libra926 she knows a lot about pheno....I gave Brutus pheno for about 1 mnth .. Brutus was had some seziures and then they stopped but he would start fly biting...The tremors are something that is normal and you can give him some karo syrup or something to distract him...I wouldnt personally continue with pheno for tremors unless there are sezuires accomppied by them...Pheno is strong drug with side effects after long term use...I could be totally wrong so lets see what @Libra926 says...She helped me through everything You can also post a new thread to get more responses ... Let me know if you need anything help getting around the site

      That is what the vet said that Punk was fly biting. So, this is normal with bulldogs? If so, then I will stop the pheno. I have tried to post a thread to the nutrition section and it would not post. Also on the bully chat it says to review the rules with a button with a 'R' on it. I have looked and cannot find the button to pick. Thank you for your help as I am new to posting and forums.

      You cant just stop pheno cold turkey he needs to weaned off of it or it could cause seiruzres possibly...Talk to the vet about decreaseing him off it...Go into the forum your bulldogs health and you will see a box where you can create a thread.

      @Annie1991

      I agree with Roe...don't just stop it cold turkey. Ween him off it slowly. Also, think about getting a second opinion. Try and capture the incidents on video....it's so much easier to show them what is wrong than try to explain. There are idiopathic head tremors and there are face seizures. They both look similar. Head tremors are more common than you think. Usually you can either distract them and get them to stop or give them some yogurt, Karo syrup or something similar...could be a low blood sugar thing.
      Phenobarbital is a pretty good drug, but it has some nasty side effects. Liver damage is the one I fear. We have to have his blood tested every few months to make sure everything is good. So, I'd seek a second opinion and do your research on what you've been told here.
      Keep us posted.

      Okay, thank you very much! Will get with the vet and let him know. She looks like a bobble head dog with moving her head up and down going from side to side. I showed the vet a video and he says seizures, but if it is common among bulldogs - does she need the pheno? - Will ask vet about it.

      Just a thought....I have had bulldogs as pets since 1982. A lot of times I have found that when they are biting at the air the are also moving there hind end, if they are biting while sitting, and usually it has to do with itching such as under the tail and/or anal glands that need to be expressed.
