    Respiratory Problems in Bulldogs
    [replacer_img]Bulldog Respiratory & Breathing: Bulldog health problems such as respiratory (upper and lower airway) conditions are very common due to inbreeding of those "cute", flat face bully features. If you've ever had a bulldog with breathing problems it's likely you will recognize some, or all, of the following list: a tongue that easily turns from pink to purple-blue, retching, salivating, frequent hacking, snorting, sneezing, snoring, chucking, and the sound of harsh breathing which becomes amplified during excitement or/and exercise. Most respiratory problems are serious and could have grave results. However, it's possible to treat most with early attention and initiative. Having the proper bulldog information at your disposal can be instrumental.

    Elongated Soft Palate
    and everted laryngeal saccules. A secondary set include hypoplastic trachea, overly enlarged protruding tonsils and Laryngeal Collapse. Your bulldog may be affected with a combination of one or more of these abnormalities.

    Stenotic Nares
    Defined as narrowed nostrils. This narrowing causes a restriction in the amount of air that can flow into the nostrils.

    Everted Saccules
    Small sacs or pouches that are located just inside the larynx; these saccules turn outwards due to the abnormal negative pressure accompanying the increased respiratory effort associated with the BCS, further obstructing airway flow and should be surgically removed

    Hmmmmm
    Sounds interesting...
    I can't wait to breathe better.
