    I don’t feel experienced enough to offer any advice but I will share some of Cinders history... She used to stay very congested and two separate times ended up with a secondary infection due to the congestion. I figured out that she didn’t know how to clear the phlegm build up so it would essentially keep building up until it made her sick.. I read a tip here that a little lemon juice would help that so I began giving her half a teaspoon when she would sound very congested.. it worked...I can’t say it was any certain property of the lemon juice, but maybe the taste just made her clear her throat??? Either way, we don’t have this problem anymore..I don’t hardly have to use the lemon juice anymore either... I’m certainly not dismissing any of the more serious issues that certainly do occur often. It’s always good to be aware and prepared..

    Thats walters nose today. No more clear discharge. Ive done some mini research about soft palate. He doesnt struggle breathing all the time and he is not forced to breathe through his mouth because he couldnt breathe through his nose. Thats like a totally different thing. He just sounds congested and stuff when he gets excited, also no green or yellow discharge. His nose is attached. Im now looking into getting a different ver though who specializes on bulldogs. Dont know why he was prescribed with antibiotics but he has improved ever since we followed the vets prescriptions.

    He's a pretty bulldog. I hope he is feeling better. Please don't feel afraid here, there are many experienced bulldog owners who have gone through just about any issue that a bulldog can and will have in their life times. Most folks here only make recommendations as to what you could have done or should get done for those reasons. I am fairly new here and have learned so much about bulldogs and always read through the blogs if my Gabe is having issues to find help for him. We hope you and Walter stick around and feel more comfortable with us real soon.

    What a great looking boy! Happy he is doing better.

    The gang gave great advice to help get you informed should this continue. When a bulldog struggles with palate it can sound like a cold because of mucus build up in the throat.... finding a bulldog savvy vet will be best. Good luck and keep us posted

Everyone just thinks he needs surgery?? Wow this website makes me scared.
    Welcome to the forum and I understand your response. I have had two bulldogs. One for 9 years and my 2nd one is 4.
    the responses are serious because we LOVE these dogs and we take it very seriously.

    the first time I took my first bully to the vet, I left hysterical crying and called my husband. He scared me half to death.

    Bulldogs have many common issues that with proper care can be resolved and in your first post you demonstrated many of the common symptoms.

    People who care were simply suggesting by experience. they also will fight NOT to have surgery like a few weeks ago when my vet wanted to surgically remove lesions caused from hot spots.


    Hang in there with us. WE CARE, WE LOVE THE BREED. I would be lost without these people.

    Much love to you and your bully!
