    Default Then and Now

    It was exactly a year ago today Chum went through a severe reaction that caused little bald spots on his head that eventually became bleeding bumps. This started the day after the vet gave him a 3 yr rabies shot by mistake as he already received it during his previous visit. Two different vets swore the shots didn't cause the reactions and said it was coincidental...I absolutely disagreed as he never experienced anything like that before... Or since for that matter. I was freaking out as Chum's head just got worse and worse. It was the first time I asked for help on EBN and the responses and support I received were overwhelming when I posted my thread. So many people who first told me to calm down, breathe, and then directed me on how to go about treating it. So many people I annoyed with countless private messages who were patient, helpful, and understanding of my mini crisis. To this day I credit EBN members and not the vets with getting chum..and me...through it all. Prior to that EBN was just a site I jumped on occasionally for information..it was then I realized what EBN is all about...kind, helpful people who I have never met..but who I now consider friends. So many times I've heard the term EBN family and it is so true. I've been lucky to experience it firsthand...and I'm thankful for everyone here I've come to know.

    That was a very nice post and I agree completely. EBN is a super FAMILY to be part of, both for the bad and the good! By the way, @Chumley if Chum is laying on your grass skirt-WHAT are you wearing?!!!

    LOVE this thread and LOVE this site!!! So happy you found us and so happy Chumley is doing so well. I too found this site due to a very stinky, ear infections bully. So many responded about the food I was feeding which was Iams, and so I did a switch... to grain free thanks to the advice I was given. Here are my pics in 6 short weeks of joining this site!!! This site has saved me so many times and I will be forever grateful for the wonderful member's and advice given. We are from all over, but we are family and one thing in common, ALL ABOUT THE BULLDOGS!!!!

    AWWWW this is Vegas at 1 yr old, he is now 5.5 yrs old. Ate up with sores, stinking to high heaven and swollen face.


    Just Six weeks after I joined this site and did a food change to a grain free food, kept his face cleaner and ears flushed due to learning all through this site


    BRAVO EBN and ALL member's!!!!

    Such a wonderful post! Chumley looks fabulous! My bulldogs rarely have to go to the vet and it's because of all I learned on EBN!
