    Default Lemons

    Ok so I just want to inform you fellow bully owners about LEMONS. I am not sure if many of you have heard what a life saver they can be! If your bulldog gets worked up and has a hard time breathing cut a lemon and squirt it down their throat! It helps clear up the phlegm We had a situation earlier this week where Olaf had gotten sooooo worked up it was SCARY! Normally he is able to calm down but this time he just couldn't. His throat sounded like it was closing up and they closest vet was about 15 min away! Well luckily my bf remembered our breeder telling us about lemons and luckily desertskybulldogs had some handy! Needless to say it worked and we are sooo thankful. I almost thought for a second olaf would not be with us So anyways this is important info for all of you if you ever get in this type of situation. Olaf is doing wonderful thanks to something so simple as a LEMON.

    Yes, this was very scary indeed!!! Olaf met our bullies, and he was very excited. We took him in to relax, away from our dogs. He was having a hard time settling down, although he was trying. Then he was having a hard time panting, like his throat was closing up. Luckily bbstubbles bf remembered the lemon juice thing the breeder had told them, because if we did not squirt it in his mouth I think he would have passed out- or worse!!!

    This is something all bully owners should know, and make sure you have some lemon juice around!

    This is something we should remember!Thankfully we have not had the need to try it out but our breeder also told us about this and I could be wrong but also soda works if no lemons are on hand. If I remember correctly that was on the paper she gave us also, will have to look to double check tho. How scary!!!!!

    You can also use the lemon juice in the plastic lemon you find in the produce department . This keeps longer and is easier to take along with you on outings . But please remember that squirting the lemon juice directly down the throat can cause choking and or shock. Instead squirt it to the side of the mouth . If your Bully is having breathing issues from being excited there's a very good chance he's over heating as well , it doesn't have to be hot outside for him/her to over heat . Follow these steps , your Bully's life may depend on it .

    Check the temp of his/her ears if they are very warm/hot to touch get him/her cooled ASAP ( If you have an extra pair of hands check his body temp )
    Get him in a cool bath of water
    Use cool water or ice on his belly ( you can apply a cool wet towel to his belly )
    Rub ice if you have it available to his ears , testicles, groin ,in his rectum (I know sounds gross but this helps )

    DO NOT GIVE YOUR BULLY ANYTHING TO DRINK until you have him temp down and breathing under control they could Aspirate (suck fluid into the lungs)
    If your Bully's temp was 102 or above get him/her to the vet ASAP after you have him stable

    With the warmer weather approaching please don't let your Bullies over do it , they don't know when to quit .

    Bully Hugs !

    Also a GREAT tip if your bully is overheating, keep rubbing alcohol handy or alcohol pads. Rub some rubbing alcohol on the back of your bullies ears. I have used this method many times and it works great.
