    Default Help!! My bully yells when getting up

    Hey im new to the site i have a 2 year old english bulldog and for the past few days sometimes when he gets up from laying down he lets out this loud yell like hes in pain. Ive checked over him and put pressure pressing on his legs & ribs & back everything & he doesnt do it. Does anyone know of what it is? Aside from that hes pretty healthy hes not over weight or anything & im worried about the guy

    my 2 year old did that the other day I think he played to much and his muscles where sore that's all I can think of he would yell when he got up but then would walk fine everything was fine I think its like when you get shin splints or something like that it scared me so bad I gave him an baby aspirin and the next day he was fine

    Thats how mine has been for the past 2 days when he gets up he would yell then he was fine. But today its bad he wont even get up and when he tries he yells. And i wanted to know about what to do or to tell the vet because the vet around here will do everything but treat whats really wrong with him and then charge me 500 dollars for the visit.. Literally.

    Im so sorry your bully is hurting. If it were me, I would take him to the vet, even if that means I get taken. Maybe you can call the vet, see what they think, and then take him in?? I would rather lose the money than possibly lose Goob. Keep us posted. I am praying for you both.

    Definitely needs to be seem by a vet. Maybe try a new one but get him in, it could be a serious thing.

    Could arthritis kicking in which can be very painful... My girl has it in her spine and we can tell when she is in more pain than normal. She has had it since around 2.. She will be 9 next month and we manage it all with meds and laser therapy.

    let us know how the vet visit goes

    Welcome to EBN sorry your baby is hurting It can a few things so a vet is probably the only one that can really see what's going on. If you don't trust your vet maybe there is another one you can take him to? It's nothing worse than a vet who's only after the money and cares nothing for the animal. There are a couple of bulldog rescues in Texas, maybe you can phone them and ask if they can recommend a good bulldog vet?

    I hope it's something simple, let us know how it goes<3

    My first Bully did that. Vet said it may be 'growing pains' and told me to give him a couple of TUMS a day (calcium supplementation in TUMS). Worked like a charm.
