    Hi there, my bully developed symptoms of hip dyplasia by 10 weeks. His hip actually popped out of socket. If you read the article at the link, it will give you more info about hip dysplasia but if you have specific questions, please do let me know. The earlier you catch it, the more options that are available to you!

    The issues can creep up at anytime .... some are there at birth and other appear after about a year. Some issues can be control by feeding a great food however, others will be addressed with meds or surgery.

    Our boy had all the breathing issues and needed surgery to reduce his palet, he had horrible allergies to grass, weeds, molds and rice which required wiping his paws and giving Benedryl daily. Then while playing at daycare with an Italian Mastiff he torn his ACL... another surgery.

    Our girl... she has allergies to grass, trees and chicken and she has fused vertebra which is addressed via pain management.

    We have never had pet insurance, it used to be cost prohibitive for Bulldogs. Now I've heard there are some reasonable plans. I am going to get an OEB next spring.
