    This is ridiculous. Regardless of his feelings toward the breed, he should have at least been able to help you treat a hot spot. All dogs get them, not just bullys.

    I had a similar incident with Rook's first vet and I moved on. I'm glad you are too! I hope you are able to find a vet that is more helpful and less of a jerk!

    Don't even get me started on vets! You can read my post from a few weeks ago and tell I was quite stressed. If I were in your position and a vet actually used those words to me...well I think me and my bully would be leaving in the back of a police car. ugh! grrr vets Jerk!

    I'd seriously be looking for another vet! IMO he will never have your bully's best interest at hand. I took Wilson for his Wellness check to Alameda East Veternary to where I took my old dog because they are top notch. I asked for a very experience vet and I got their bet (this is a top rated place and has been on Animal Planet several times). The moment he came in his proceed to say in a negative way how bad the breeding is in this breed and they shouldn't even exist. I was floored. We'd had probably spent over $8,000 there. I haven't looked back and it was a good thing because I found a REAL bully vet here. Just turns out he was on the list too. If I was you I'd be calling around and asking other vets what experience they have with Bulldogs and even French Bulldogs or Pugs since they have similar breathing issues. Maybe try Googling Bulldog vets in your area too and see if anything pops up. Good luck!!!
