    Default Few issues need input eng bully

    My 5 yr old neutered bully has had 3 episode I've seen of mild seizure what the vet called Idiopathic Vestibular Disease. He is an excellent bulldog specialist and told me that since they don't seem to be happening more often that really not much could be done. As long as his quality of life is good which it's great. I know I've only seen 3 but there is a chance there was more when not home. Anyone else experiencing these symptoms?

    Additionally. We take our boy to the day care so he can release energy and get a work out lol, last week we took him for an overnight stay. When we took him home he was very very tired which is fine because he plays hard. They give him break time/ nap time. Indoor place with ac. He was tired for like 3 days. Also his breathing was like a raspy snoring type that went away after 2 days (no coughing or vomiting) . Could this be from barking while there or just normal for his age after playing so much. He also was squinting his right eye like it was dry or irritated.
    Any past experience would help.

    He's 42 lbs smaller framed
    Last check up was 3 weeks ago everything was in the normal level on his blood test and physical exam dr said he is one of the more healthy looking bulldog he's seen

    He is a good looking bully, and so sorry he has Idiopathic Vestibular Disease. The one thing that I would be careful of is the over night stays, he could get pretty stressed out in there.

    I don't have any experience with Idiopathic Vestibular Disease sadly, I hope it won't get worse

    The eye squinting can be a scratch on the eye from playing maybe? That happens, if he continues to squint he'll need a vet visit to get some eye cream or drops to help him so it doesn't get worse.

    He's beautiful<3

    What a great looking boy.... I have no experience on the Idiopathic Vestibular Disease, and hope you can get some insight.. I tagged a few members that have bullies with seizers and hope they have some insight for you.

    as for the daycare.... when my guys went to daycare, they would regularly sleep for two days after being there all day.... an over night has to be even more exhausting for them.

    Thank you for the kind words.
    He absolutely loves the day care. He know when we are driving there just by the turns we make on the road. They are wonderful owners also. He's been going there since 3 months. I know though he loves to sleep in his own bed (our bed). It's really is a great way to release stress and anxiety.

    The seizure episodes just need to keep an eye out on frequency. Thanks again.

    My guy was the same, as soon as I made the last turn, he would start whining to get out of the car. And, we also could not say the name of the owner of the daycare... he would go NUTS running all over

    What a good-looking boy! I have no experience with this and hope the seizures are few and far between.
