    Today he is back to himself like nothing has ever happened. He is to cute He has already gotten out of his inflatable collar and popped it. Ah, but me being the great bully mom I am, I purchased 2 at a time!!! He is ready to play with his basset hounds and cats but alas another night in his crate. His outside time is still on the leash, but he has never showed an problems with his 2 front paws and the stitches loook great.Thank you all for the responses

    Aww!! I was getting worried until I read your wonder-bull update !!! Sooo happy he's okay !!!
    And I LOVE that you were prepared with TWO collars !!! That is the kind of thing I do, too!

    I do have a question, though.....After our Meaty was neutered and Sophie was spayed, we didn't
    use cones/collars since bulldogs *usually* can't physically reach those areas on their own. I'm so curious if
    any bulldog owners have had ones that could actually lick their incisions/ staples in that area?

    It's horri-bull how many people / animals suffer from a secondary yeast infection because they
    didn't know antibiotics kill our good gut flora. WHHHY do they not tell patients this? One time I nicely asked our vet if we could give probiotics while our doggies were on antibiotics,
    and he looked at me as though I were crazy....seriously???

    I've had multiple "hooman" female friends vent that they ended up with a horrible yeast infection while taking antibiotics, and NO ONE at their doctor's office warned them or suggested things they could eat to avoid a super-infection ....ugh !!!

    @TooTooMommy. Vet schools don’t teach about food, nor vasectomies or tying tubes etc. like a doctor, they know noting of meds or food as they’re taught the basics in meds but a pharmacist, yes that’s the person you want to talk to as it’s them that tells doctors about meds. I know a few doctors n they did say the same they get free samples with info or they go to Pharmaceutical seminars etc.. nowadays we have the internet so easier to look up. But yes definitely vets are not there to tell you about probiotics. If you have a healthy dog they won’t make any $$$. Sadly it’s up to us to educate ourselves n take over. I’ve personally never given any of my dogs all the annually shots recommended. They got it as pups from the breeders but that’s it. I’m not saying to anyone not to go for shots but I don’t. A healthy body falls under the diet a pet will eat just like humans.

    I'm with you on the shots. My dogs get the rabies shots because it's required by law but that's pretty much it.

    I would think the cone was more about the duclaw excision than the neuter.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Thanks for the information, but will he get diarrhea from it? He has only had bland “people” food so far... what about yogurt? I know it has lactobacillus. Any other foods to offer? Fermented food will have a high yeast content. I thought with bullies you had to watch for extra air in the gut, so to speak....

    Yes, Oscarmayer was right, I’m using the inflatable collar for the dewclaw excision. Edison used his front dewclaw like talons on my lower front shins. To the point that my md was trying to make me get rid of my baby. I was on antibiotics every other month for wounds inflicted by his dewclaws. I would not think of getting rid of him, so the dewclaws went. It doesn’t seem to bother him a bit.

    Yogurt is on the dairy side I would avoid that. But that’s me. And no fermented food doesn’t create yeast. If the gut is clean n the flora is balanced it actually helps to get rid of yeast in ears, tear stains etc. Soft stools can occur till gut is balanced out then the stool will get back to normal. I would give maybe just a TEAspoon for now not more. Jump a day like give it every 2 days.
