    If I were you I'd go to Dr. Butchko in Riverside hes further out but well worth it, he knows the Bulldog breed and his prices tend to be way cheaper. He doesnt take appointments so its first come first serve.

    Wheezing can be very serious. Bullies can go from a slight wheeze to a collapsed larynx in seconds. I cannot emphasize enough to get Scully's airway checked out by a GOOD vet. Dr Butchzko in Riverside is good for basic care, but I really like Dr Glass in Tustin. If surgical care is needed, then Dr Cambridge in Tustin is one of the best surgeon's in the Country.

    Always have fans/ice packs and water on hand, whether are home or on the road. Keeping bullies from overheating can be the difference between life and death.

    I wish you and Scully the best!

    we're all here to help and there are some wonderful people here, just ask and help will always appear!!!
    Was thinking the same, he might be over heating in high temp.

    Great advice by the gang for sure...get the palate checked, make sure the temp in the house is cool for him and also keep in mind Bullies can be very OCD so it will take him time to adjust to the new home and the changes to his routine

    please keep us posted

    I moved about a month ago and was pleased with Cami's seemingly easy
    transition...last week she marked my bed (and my Mother's) every day
    and twice one day. Christine
    @2BullyMama helped me understand WHY.
    She said Cami was feeling more comfortable so was just now expressing
    her anxiety and her insecurity, we might move yet again. She also pointed
    out, as long as I was unpacking (and I still am) she would probably continue
    marking. So...I feel your pain and hope our bullies feel secure & stable asap.
    Hang in there...GOD bless y'all and your new digs!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Thank you all sorry for the delay it's been a busy weekend! For now he's staying where he grew up at my gfs parents. Until we can take him to the vets, we've pushed back buying a new tv so he can come home with us and his brother Bowser. I've heard these surgeries can be expensive
