    Default Hello Everyone! New to the forum and first time bulldog owner!

    Hey, just wanted to say hello! I got my first bulldog puppy about a year and half ago. I like to think of myself as an expert now because anything that could go wrong has gone wrong! J/K I'm still learning. Haha! But seriously, we started with hives at about 4 months old, which turned into a scabby skin condition. A year later and I've finally found a food he's not allergic too! YAY! Clear skin! Ever since he was 6 months old his tail pocket has been infected.. he's sprained his ankle and has had 2 eye ulcers. He's at the vet at least once a month. I think he's doing it on purpose. He likes the attention.

    Anyway.. Four days ago I made a 5 hour drive to see a specialist and had his tail amputated. He's doing really good! Has anyone had this done to their bully? I'm wondering how long it takes to heel/hair grow back, etc.

    And even after all that, what do I do? I get him a baby brother. LOL! Now I have a 6 month old boy too, and the skin issues are already starting up.. Time to start making the rounds with different foods again..

    WELCOME!!!! Beautiful puppies. Nyala my brindle has a tail pocket issues but been keeping at bay with an essential oil mix. Been great for pass year. I clean her tail every 2days. For skin issues I switched to raw n Acana. Knock on wood never had issues to date. Like you, I got Nyala a little brother 6 months ago. They are glued to the hip. A lot of work as Duke is a crap disturber but worth the gray hair. You will enjoy having 2.

    We've done a few tail removals and the healing takes 4-6 weeks. Hair fully returneth in 3-4 months.
    Welcome and that's a good looking pair ya got there.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?
