    Question Need a vet in Toronto who is experienced with English bulldogs- We have a hind end issue that has not be solved

    Our lovely rescue Trevor has had hind end issues since we got him.

    We have his many allergies under control, his anal glands are fine, he does not have any bugs of any sort and we have tried a number of topical creams and sprays....but he is very itchy on and around his tail and there can be red marks etc.

    We need a good vet in Toronto or close to that to see if they can figure it out. We have been to the vet many times and with no resolve.

    Could someone suggest a good and preferably reasonably priced vet. We will travel a bit for one also. He has been suffering with this for some time...



    Thank you

    Hello! i lived downtown toronto for many years, and we took Lola to two different places. The first was a very inexpensive animal hospital, bathurst and dupont. We got lola spayed there for under $400, but when it came to her allergies and skin conditions AND her palate, they failed to diagnose. Plus no A/c in the waiting room. no no.

    Our second and highly recommended vet is Dr Richardson at the animal clinic. This is near Ryerson Univ in the dundas/yonge area.

    106 Mutal Street
    Toronto, Ontario
    M5B 2R7

    He was really informed, and was clearly able to (ugh hate comic sans here) diagnose and explain all the treatment options for us wrt her skin allergies and her palate. They referred us to the VEC for the palate surgery and a tooth extraction not because they couldn't do it there, but becuase the VEC surgeons were the best in Toronto. He never made me feel like I was a crazy bulldog owner. And we ended up treating the skin itchies with a low dose of a steroid. He also will allow me to get scrips at my local pharmacy which in many cases saved me money. The steroid unfortunately is only vet approved. They charge a little more, but the service is excellent. In addition, I would call to get months worth of pills for Lola to have on hand, particularly when we moved back to the states late last year and he set us up with no questiosn or hassles.

    There is a second vet in Guelph, Fleming is her name. she raises bulldogs, but I've never met her. If i had not found Dr. Richardson, i would have driven to guelph to go to Dr Fleming.

    I know this probably isn't feasible, but my vet in Ottawa has been amazing with both of my bulldogs for the past 6 years - if you feel like the drive.
