Thread: Is this normal?

  1. #1

    Default Is this normal?

    Hello, my baby bull is losing hair on his lips and I see some pimple like bumps. We clean his wrinkles with medicated wipes but he is wet a lot because he drinks water like he is bathing. Any help?

    Dampness from drinking water can cause irritation and chin acne, but it can also be food related as well. Wipe his face dry after drinking and continue with the wipes and give it a few days to see if it starts to clear up. If not then I would take a look at the food as a next step.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Hum...how old is he? Could he have gotten into something in the yard that is causing this reaction?

    Also this is called puppy acne , agree with Todd keep the area clean and dry
    Looking at the first picture there is a lot of redness around the mouth and folds-do they smell funny (between folds?)this could be sign of a yeast or other bacterial infection -again we use witch hazel daily to wipe clean and dry the wrinkles and folds
    can i ask what are you feeding your bulldog?

    Keeping the puppy dry will help, also, what type of bowl is the water in??? I know some bulldogs are sensitive to plastic bowls and can get topical reactions from them.

    We feed him iams and his mouth stinks but not the folds. He is 10 months. I'm going to start drying him after drinking water. His bowl is of stainless steel.

    You might wanna switch him to a better food. More than likely that along with it being moist is causing it. You can use witch hazel which is self drying or even Listerine (the original gold one) for the acne.

    I would also suggest using ceramic bowls and start a cleaning routine -bullies are high maintenance dogs that benefit from good quality food, cleaning care

    Here is what we do daily ;

    " Hi guys i thought i share with you what i have always done with my girls -what i like to call "a mini check up "

    1) nose -even tho most bulldogs have a naturally dry nose make sure it is not cracking ,make sure nose rope is clean and doesn't smell (this could indicate yeast infection)

    2) eyes -they should be nice clear eyes with no gunk ,redness or swelling- if you notice any redness or inflammation it could be signs of allergy or infection

    3) ears- clean and odour free ears are a sign of a healthy bully -we clean them once a week ,but check their general condition daily -ears full of wax ,smelly or red could be sign of infection ,allergy ,or mites

    4) gums - gums of your bully should be pink -if you notice them going pale contact your vet -pale gums are indication that something isn't right - it could be nothing serious but worth checking

    5) chin -oh the bully chin -make sure it is dry at all times ,not red with no signs of acne

    6) wrinkles and folds -the big 3 : check daily ,wipe clean & keep them dry

    7) skin and coat -bully coat should be soft and shiny , skin free from "flakes" , spots and hotspots , check for any lumps and bumps ,also don't forget checking for any signs of fleas and ticks Daily brushing will help keep those stray hair at bay ,

    8) " bits and bobs " check ALL intimate areas and wipe clean daily -most of bulldogs if not all cant clean themselves , check for any signs of redness and spots , any unusual discharge . If your bully got a tail pocket don't forget to wipe it clean ,once in a while your bully anal glands might need expressing if you cant do it yourself make sure you have suitable person who will take care of this stinky business ;-)

    9) paws -check in between paws for any redness ,cysts ,also pads for any cuts and splinters ,make sure your bully nails are trimmed

    10 ) weight -chubby bully is an unhealthily bully -monitor your dog weight , you need to feel the ribs with GENTLE pressure not see them ,bullies also should have waist ;-)
