    Have him checked out by your vet, my girl had sever pneumonia as a baby she too was only seen by the vet the day before , the following morning she was playing eating being a general pup by the afternoon she we was rushing her to the emegancie vets not to worry you or anything but these things can come on really quickly

    Well...again, it depends on how BULLDOG SAVVY the Vet is and if YOU
    feel something is not quite right. Can you send a video (with sound) so
    we can listen to what it sounds like?


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Hi Paul some vets have more experience & more understanding of the breed and there issues are you in the UK? I was told by my own vets there are vets in Liverpool and London that specialise in just Bulldogs - I think if they see Bulldogs on a daily they have a better understanding of the breed and pick up on more I suppose that's like anything - as for other signs of pneumonia my girl became very lethargic in the afternoon she spiked a temp, she was off her food this all happened very fast within hours as I said in a previous post she was playing eating & drinking prior to this

    if you look on the bulldog breed council & bulldog rescue website's they have a list of bulldog recommended vets ( that's if your over here in the UK and your looking for a new vet)

    Aw Manchester is my home town - she was fine in the morning play eating etc, I put her lunch down at lunch time and she wasn't intressed one bit, that's when I got a feeling something wasnt right with her but I couldn't decided if it was down to the heat (it was summer just gone) or she was generally not well, I kept a close eye on her by 4pm that day I was rushing her to the vets she was very lathargic, hot to touch and seem like she was trembling the ev said the trembles was from the high temp,they kept her in and had her on both a fluid & antibiotic drip.

    I'm not wanting to worry or anything like that as it could be something or nothing, I would keep a close eye on him you know your pup and you know if there's something wrong.
