    Gilbert had surgery

    Great that he’s on the mend. The first couple of days are the most difficult. After that, good to go!

    URGENT!!! Bulldog Puppy!!!

    No strength in any legs at this age, little to no coordination...way too soon to evaluate any orthopedic concerns. Bulldogs are not necessarily graceful when fully developed! Too early to worry, IMO.

    In need of advice. We don't know what to do.

    URGENT HELP NEEDED- Bulldog not eating for 4+ weeks

    My first thought is that he has a tooth abscess and it's downright painful for him to eat. Did any of the Vets check his teeth?

    Anybody help?

    If it IS mange, the GO-TO treatment is NEXGARD. If it's a simple Staph infection we always treat with Cephalexin...course should run 6 weeks minimum. Many Vets will write for 4 weeks but that is not enough!

    This is a touchy scenario. A narrow trache AND enlarged soft palate are quite a 1-2 punch. The problem is the soft palate surgery may not correct anything if this boy's issues are caused by hypoplastic trachea. Also, the risk factor jumps way up with that narrow trachea. A BULLDOG...

    Help, tulip ears!

    You already know this but those ears are pretty crazy. We get rescues with ears like that 1 in 20(estimating). Sandy says they are Bullsht sensors and that people talking about his ears should be more concerned about his teeth>>>>> CHOMP!

    Here’s a unique little guy…

    I have no idea but if I had to guess, I’d say modern, as in new. It was found at the Torpedo Factory Art Gallery in Alexandria Va

    Very nice. No better place for a Bulldog than on a beach!

    Bulldogs, AKC or not, come in all sizes. We've had tall, short, long, stubby, wide, narrow, and every possible size in between. Sometimes you get a big head and sometimes not. As a general rule, the better the overall breeding the more likely to conform to the AKC breeding standard...which...
