    Default What health problems have you have with you English Bulldog? skin, eyes, mange ect?

    Everyone who owns or has owned an English Bulldog knows they can have health problems. I would like to know the health problems that we are having today with the English Bulldogs? Is it still mange, eyes, skin, hip dysplasia, allergies, or breathing?

    I have noticed here on the forums there have been many skin and poo issues.

    With my five I have had 1 case of skin infection, 1 case of eye ulcer, a few yeast infections and 1 hotspot. Most of which I was able to bring to health with the right food.

    I've personally experienced: skin, allergies, hip, knees (possibly related to underlying hip issue), and mange.

    Aside from my bully being accident prone and tearing of a dewclaw while attacking the water hose some years back, we havent had much to complain about. Thankfully!!!! Maybe an ear infection or so but that is mostly it I would say. If it werent for me being the worry wart he wouldnt have gone to the vets as much as he has. lol

    Before we found out what Stig was allergic to, his allergies caused him to develop mange and an ear infection.

    He's great now, except for a cherry eye that we're trying to control without having to go to surgery.

    Let me see...
    Alex had: cherry eye surgery, entropium surgery, elongated pallet surgery (both made at once), mange in the ears only, fungus on his back, pollen allergy (rashes when he plays few days at the grass)
    Moira had: entropium surgery on both eyes. She'll have one more soon. First one wasn't successful.
    This is till now and I hope to stay like this for a looooong time

    @savemejeebus, what kind of allergies does Stig have? Is he on a grain free, gluten free diet like Vegas?

    @KMARINO - not too sure what he's allergic to. He does better on the meaty treats like dried venison than the cookie types, but he still can get hives from the meaty ones. We were going to do an allergy test but backed out when we realized that he was practically hives free when we completely stopped giving him treats. But, of course, that doesn't mean that we won't ever give me any.
