    I second what Cali says. I am relieved that there is hope. Don't forget to contact the breeder and keep them in the loop. If they are good peeps they will help you through this too!

    Hi Truman's mommy...
    I have a little bully who is almost 1 year old. She is just a little thing, but anyhow when she was about 10 weeks old she had something like that happen to her. 1st vet said blah,blah,blah nothing can be done except surg.. Well 2nd opinion from bulldog vet said she will be fine and no.... surgery needed. wow what a difference in vets!!! I do have my girl on glycoflex and she is doing great!! so don't give up hope!!! and as far as the breeder--- I hope that you bought from a good breeder because if not that warranty means nothing.. a good breeder will work things out with you. a bad one you will chuck it up to experience.

    Thanks everyone.

    He seemed better today but after I fed him and let him out (and he limped around a bit), he was in a lot of pain again. I gave him his meds and he's sleeping but I based on your advice and experiences, I think I am definitely going to make an appointment with a bulldog vet in our area (since we have x rays already) to see what they think and if anything can be done to keep him comfortable while they continue to diagnose him.

    Did you get diagnosis to figure out what was wrong? We have yet to get a definitive diagnosis and are hoping to just get the peace of mind to know what it is so we know how to deal with it in the long and short term.

    I think seeing a bully vet is a good idea for sure. I mean seeing the specialist, he should know you would think but maybe it is something more common in bullys even and a bulldog vet would know more about this specifically. Certainly cant hurt and like you said for peace of mind if nothing else it is worth millions.

    Hey props to the 1st vet for acutally suggesting a second opinion. Very honest. That is hard to come by. Hopefully evrything turns out ok. Hope you contacted the breeder....

    We've got an appointment this morning at the bulldog vet and I did contact the breeder. He asked me to forward him the paperwork and x rays. Based on that, he said I could return the pup for a refund and he would put him to sleep. I refused to return him but asked for a refund and that I be responsible for all his future needs - whatever they are - and he agreed. I don't know if that is common practice but it seemed equitable to me.

    That does seem fair to me also. No way I would be able to give the pup back either. At least you will get your money back that will be a big help and hopefully the outcome wont be so bad. Will be waiting to hear what the bully vet has to say later. Good luck!

    I hope for the best for you and your puppy. Our bully is 10 weeks old today and I am already so attached to him I know how heartbreaking it must be for you.
