    Default my British Bulldog

    Hi my British Bulldog's face is swollen, his breathing is a little different and he's wee lumps over his body. He's been trying to scratch his face on the wall etc. Anyone any ideas, I'm thinking an allergic reaction to something!!

    yes that sounds like and allergic reaction to something. do you have any benadryl or something similiar over there. if he is having trouble breathing you may have to get him to the vet immediately. i benadryl per 25 pounds is the norm. once you get him calmed down then you can find out what caused it.

    He's definitely allergic to something, bug bite? New food?, new shampoo? , could be a number of things, is he a puppy ? Or older dog, and what type of food are you feeding him? A lot of bulldogs are allergic, to chicken, corn, and other fillers. I am having a lot of sensitivity problems with my female Blossom, but no hives or breathing problems, we switched her food to Fromms Beef Fritata , and she is doing much better. I would give him a bendedry, and keep an eye on him, and if after the bendedryl, he still has the same problems, I would take him to the vet, especially with the breathing problems. He may need a shot of cortisone or something else to help him. Good luck, keep us posted, hope he feels better soon.

    Good, but I would still keep watching him, to make sure he is breathing regular, and you could call your vet when they open and ask what they recommend, just to be on the safe side.

    Just wondering what did you give him hunny? Piriton...not the one a day...is best half fir a puppy and a whole one for bigger dogs. The piriton will make him sleepy. Is this his first reaction? What is different over the last few days...some of our pups react immediately others take a few days. Welcome BTW glad you found us xxx

    Hives are DANGEROUS. The lumps and bumps on the outside can also be present on the INSIDE and that's why it's important to take swift action when these reactions occur.

    How is your bully doing now? has the swelling subsided? welcome to the site. It's funny how many people find us when they have a problem, but they stay for the long haul.
