That is what the vet said that Punk was fly biting. So, this is normal with bulldogs? If so, then I will stop the pheno. I have tried to post a thread to the nutrition section and it would not post. Also on the bully chat it says to review the rules with a button with a 'R' on it. I have looked and cannot find the button to pick. Thank you for your help as I am new to posting and forums.
Okay I will look for it. Thanks
Everyone wants to kiss a bullie
I agree with Roe...don't just stop it cold turkey. Ween him off it slowly. Also, think about getting a second opinion. Try and capture the incidents on video....it's so much easier to show them what is wrong than try to explain. There are idiopathic head tremors and there are face seizures. They both look similar. Head tremors are more common than you think. Usually you can either distract them and get them to stop or give them some yogurt, Karo syrup or something similar...could be a low blood sugar thing.
Phenobarbital is a pretty good drug, but it has some nasty side effects. Liver damage is the one I fear. We have to have his blood tested every few months to make sure everything is good. So, I'd seek a second opinion and do your research on what you've been told here.
Keep us posted.
Okay, thank you very much! Will get with the vet and let him know. She looks like a bobble head dog with moving her head up and down going from side to side. I showed the vet a video and he says seizures, but if it is common among bulldogs - does she need the pheno? - Will ask vet about it.
Thank you for excepting me.

Hi to all of you. My name is Donna and I have a 2 year old english bulldog name Maxine. She is wonderful but she has spina bifeda. As she grew older she began having bowel issues at night only. i am having a hard time finding a diaper to fit her and stay on. she is about 42 pounds. Or shall i say 42 lbs of pleasure. Any suggestions? i have gone to Petco and Petsmart but still no luck. Thanks for any advice you can offer
