Ear clean =check
The staff here at EBN thought that on the first of each month, we would put out a reminder to do a health check on your bully
Sometimes we all forget certain things, and a little reminder is always nice.
Did you give them their heartworm preventative this month?
Do they need a nail trim?
How about a bath?
How do those floppy cute little bully ears look inside?
Don't forget to respond to this topic!
Also, let us know if you think a WEEKLY reminder would be better than monthly. Some of us may be on a different schedule with heartworm & stuff.... so let me know what you think.
Ear clean =check
Everything +worming=check but nails... what do u guys use for bully nail trimming? Mr.Beefy has big meaty paws and very strong nails..
@gatorfan85 here is the link all about how much desertsky LOVES her dremmel. lmao. It is a grinder that files back the nails and a lot of people use them for their pups. I havent gotten that far just yet tho. http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...hlight=dremmel
My boys are in need of a bath and nail trimmings. Their ears are good to go and we dont use heartworm meds. Never thought we needed to, do you think it is something every dog should use or does it depend on area etc?
Ears and faced washed/cleaned last night, heart worm pill the 1st of every month, given today. commented last night to my hubby time for nails, It takes 3 vet techs. to hold him to get his nails dremmeled he HATES to have his nails done, but with ALL his nails being black I am afraid and I don't think I have the strength to hold him to do it. His nails grow extremely fast so about every 3 weeks we have to pay $11.00 for cut and dremmel. Tomorrow is bath day the Vet gave him an anti-fungel/yeast shampoo that we are going to use/try on him tomorrow....so Vegas is in check so far.
We did full grooming session on Wednesday, bath, tail and then the face wrinkles daily. Cleaned one ear but the other is clearly up for an ear infection so I use wipe it out with a cotton ball daily. Don't want to irritate it with the ear cleaning solution. Heartworm preventative was given on 9-23, 23rd of every month! And his nails never really get long, I assume that lazy, heavy feet dragging across the concrete in my backyard files then down a little each day????

Heartworm is with dinner tonight and then in a week is their Comfortis. Ear and bath check is every Sunday!!! Nails when I can, but I think I am going to call the vet and see if they can do it this time. Thanks for the reminder!!!! I usually am good at remembering, but it is nice to see it come up in the forums!!!
Always with me
@TessandSamson You are so lucky about the nails, Vegas's grow so fast it is an every 3 weeks (and they are clicking on my tile by then) to the vet techs for a trim and dremmel. And living here in Florida hot/humid, and a pond in our back yard heart-worm meds are a must!!

Ears and wrinkles cleaned last night. Nails trimmed last week. Took him to a local pet store and he ended up pooping a little.
Don't know if the vet checked for heartworm the last time we were there, I'll ask him next week when Stig, hopefully, gets his second set of vaccinations.
He may need a bath soon, although we gave him one 2 weeks ago. For some reason he's starting to smell like a 'sweaty fish'. :p Must be from the Fromm Salmon & Veg food and the twice a day salmon oil we give him.
