    Default New bulldog baby need help guesstimating his age

    When I got him the ad says he was born March 15 then his "health record" I use that term loosely says born April 1st and that he was vaccinated may 1st. He was very dehydrated and malnourished and worm and parasites ridden and weighed 5 lbs at the vet on Monday. I got him Friday night by the time my vet was open Monday I had him rehydrated enough the vet told me to keep doing what I was it was working beautifully. We got him his worm pill and he is on adult acana because he was so bad any puppy food would be too much of a shock. He has had diarrhea so bad it's terrible. We are extremely confused as to age so I thought I could turn somewhere where there may be breeders to enlighten me as to things that may help determine age a bit. -20160618_012332-jpg-20160618_012316-jpg-20160621_150721-jpg-20160621_194124-jpg
    the pic with 2 is my other bulldog born Feb 7th there really is a huge difference way more then a month if I was supposed to have a 13 week old puppy. Any comments or help greatly appreciated thank you for your time

    He is beautiful. He is small but with proper diet and nutrition, he should turn into a big loaf of bread in no time.

    I think he cannot be born March 15. His face seems to be a face of bully around 2 months old. Weight is a bit low even for a dog born April 1, but you say that he was not well taken care of. When I got my bully, he was 2 months old and weighed 3.2 kg.
    He is an amazing baby, so cute and i guess, he is very lucky to become your family member, as it seems like you rescued him from an awful place!

    Congratulations, he is a little cutie for sure & welcome to EBN.
    Your other bully is adorable as well, what are their names?

    Not a breeder but he doesn't look like a 13 wk old puppy to me.

    So much stress to his system from meds, change of food & worm
    parasite issues so diarrhea to be expected, poor'll one.

    So glad he came home with you, lucky boy!

    I'd get him on goat's colostrum & build a great immune system.

    Good luck with everything & continue to update us on his progress.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    What matters right now is you keep him on proper puppy food like orijen as he is small and good protein snacks. He looks like a happy camper so that's great!

    Thank you everyone. I feel I was the lucky one to get him!! He is one tough lil guy and quite the fighter. I keep thinking what if someone who didn't know anything about bulldogs thought this was what they were supposed to be like he would have died in a day. I am very glad for my vet schooling and rescue days of so many sick puppies. I will definitely keep everyone posted and glad to have found this forum. I will get him on puppy food and good food once he has stabilized because he was so malnourished we can't shock his system which is why he isnt on it as of right now. For right now the Acana Lamb and apple is getting his system back in order. I have been reading alot on here about FROMM and am going to the pet store tomorrow to check into it. My girl Zoey who is 5 months old has never gotten firm stools how i would like so maybe greasy lamb isnt for her lol so we might do a change for everyone In the meantime here is some pics of the two after they first met and one I did last night that fits my lil man to a T

    Both of your babies are cuties! Getting the worms out of that poor pup will do wonders! Getting some food and water will be quite beneficial,too.
    If they have loose stools, you can give them pumpkin with their meals. The plain canned pumpkin-NOT pie mix. I think you probably saved that pup's life!

    Oh dear, you don't have to be sorry. Ive been through that and alot of other members. You have adorable puppies. Cherry eye or not! They are cutie pies.

    There are a lot of good info in here about cherry eyes. Try to keep Zoey calm for a good 3 weeks so it doesn't pop back out Keep us posted.

    thank you his poop is liquid right now after deworming sooooo many roundworms came out it was sickening from friday night till yesterday i have been cleaning diarrhea off everything every hour and he is getting pumpkin, yogurt and baby oat cereal with probiotics to try to get this lil on track. He is drinking amazing when i first got him he drank for 20 min straight �� I hate funding a bad breeder but i couldnt walk away knowing he would die. It was hard but not i just worry about the rest too

    Are you planning on getting her spayed ? Cause if you are, wait till she has her appointment and do both at same time. You will also save a lot of money cause you will pay once. No need to put her under 2x. You can push back in the cherry eye. I did it and works till you get them fix. have a look at the link
