    I had similar experiences when I brought my 2 bulldogs (who are sisters) into 3 separate vets when they were puppies. It was one of those things where I kind of just went with it during the appointment and then afterward realized how unprofessional and unhelpful it was for each of the vets to lecture me in that way.

    I still haven't found a vet in my area that's not vocally disapproving of the bulldog breed in general, but at least the one I settled on is the vet for bulldogs from the local rescue group and is therefore very familiar with the breed.

    Wanted to add that those pics of your bulldog puppy are absolutely lovely! He's sooo adorable!

    LADY???? You're way too nice! Sh*t like that should never happen. She must of been sleeping in vet class or "manners" class. Idiots like that, you need to put them in their place immediately so they come down a few notches with their ego and walk out! No one should ever be treated like that! RC is crap and we all know that. Good job on getting you dog off of it! Like mentioned above someone can guide you to better vets in your area. BTW, beautiful puppy there!!!

    Your baby is gorgeous and I think you should make a complaint to the clinic about her behavior. They should never just get away with such customer service. They are totally left without work if there were no bullys...

    Walk or shall I say RUN away...

    Vets are supposed to care for ALL animals, not just the breeds that they personally like. Opinions are fine, but that is NOT what you came in there for...

    You were very strong not to give that Vet what she deserved right then and there...I would have cut her off at the knees.
    I recommend that you write a letter to the owner of the practice and describe in detail the events as they unfolded. If your puppy is really as bad as that Vet indicated, then by treating you so poorly and running you off as a potential client, she just cost her boss a huge amount of $$$ that you would have had to spend keeping your bulldog as healthy as possible. Do NOT tell the owner that you are never going to return and you may get a reply...an apologetic reply. How you proceed from there will be determined by the content of the reply. Either way, if that Vet worked for me she'd have been taken down a few notches. There's simply no cause for arrogant behavior like that. By writing that letter you'd be doing future Bulldog owners that visit that clinic a huge favor.

    Additionally, you might mention that the Vet never offered any diagnosis of your puppy that would bolster her position that she would live only 5 years.
    Did that Vet say your bully had entropion, cherry eye, pulmonic valve stenosis, enlarged soft palate, demodectic mange, hip or elbow dysplasia, luxating patella, etc?

    We all know that bulldogs are more likely to have some medical issues come up as they age, but we address those issues when the time comes and we keep on loving our babies. Those like that Vet(and thankfully, they a few) will never get to experience that love and companionship...they're missing out.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    The best part about this is there is not one thing wrong with the dog. Not a single health issue. She is just stereotyping the breed. Obviously she has a problem with the breed...

    @Snoboardchk911 You have a beautiful pup! That vet should be banished from practice. My vet has his own Frenchies and English,and people come from quite a distance to him-he loves bullies! No matter what her opinion is,she was seeing a patient,and needs to learn manners! Please tell us where she is located,so all will be SURE NOT to go there! Sorry this happened to you!

    Oh my goodness, he is adorable!! How dare that vet treat you like that, what an idiot. She has no business being a vet!! Ive worked in a vet clinic for over 10 years and have never seen a vet treat a client or puppy that way.

    And by the way, my Dually is 8 years old and in perfect health!!

    Diesel is a Beauty, So Handsome. That So called vet is an Idiot, she is really ignorant. She needs to be fired from the Veterinarian Practice, she is supposed to Love All Animals.

    I would have made some kind of remark about how her parents should have thought twice before breeding and walked out flipping her the bird. I would not have paid for the visit either. That is pathetic.
