    My question is how’s your other dog?

    Hello everyone!! I'm so excited to be a part of this forum. I am my Bullydog's Gigi as my son cant have his baby boy right now. I'm in Love with my Bully grandson and pretty sure my son, Houston, cant have him back LOL. My name is Staci and I preferred to be called Stac. My Bully baby is Bubba J. Nice to be on here and LOVE all the bulldog pics I've seen, simply adorable 😉

    Welcome Stac and Bubba!
    I have been a member for 2 years and I love seeing all of the (mostly) silly photos of all of our fur-babies!
    And learning all about the breed too. There are so many here with great advice for any questions you may have.
    We need photos!

    ďIt came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    Sorry for your baby being so sick! Mycoplasma is a very common opportunistic bacteria, which means it is present in many healthy dogs and doesnít cause any infection when immune system of dog is strong. But when dogís immune system is weak ( like in puppies), or puppy gets kennel cough and is weakened, Mycoplasma joins the process and worsens the situation severely, causing bad pneumonia. Also can cause other multiple health problems - eyes, urinary, infertility, blood problems. Too many.
    Pneumonia caused by mycoplasma is really bad because it is severe and difficult to treat, these bacteria are special as they do not have cell wall and antibiotics work breaking cell wall, so antibiotics donít kill them that good. You will need a long course of antibiotics.

    There are many subtypes. Some of them live in the nasal cavity, some in genitalia of dogs. Usually puppies get infected from Mom, so bitches who are positive for genital mycoplasma are usually treated, it is sexually transmitted. Breeding bitch mustnít have mycoplasma in her genitalia, because it spreads during mating and puppies will be infected.
    In your case, 99% he was infected from mom. Then he got kennel cough, Mycoplasma just joined the process.
    Hopefully therapy with antibiotics will kill infection successfully.
    Good luck!
