    URGENT!!! Possible soft tissue sarcoma...

    Dear all, Ulysses and I are back and we are extremely happy to reconnect with our bully forum family again. So sorry to have been disconnected for a while but as you all know, sometimes life gets in the way and one looses touch for a bit. Sadly, we received not such good news from the vet this...

    Help Needed! Tumor on tail

    Dearest all, Ulysses and I are back :) so happy to be here but not so happy about the circumstances. Here's the story: So about a year ago, Ulysses started having skin issues on his tail. It was permanently dry and seemed to be itchy. The fur fell off but came back so it was a sort of an on...

    General Question Any tips to cool down a bully?

    So last week summer finally arrived... and how it did! We had scorching temperatures of over 40ºC / 104ºF. It was terribly hot, and since in Germany we don't really have air conditioning in most places, well you can imagine how hot Ulysses was. He was panting non-stop, he had me really worried...

    Abscesses and penis pocket infection here we go again!

    So here we go again with the penis' pocket infection :( . Ulysses started leaking a lot of that creamy yellowish/greenish stuff out of his pecker again about 4 weeks ago, he was already treated for it with everyday flushing and local antibiotics (the same that are used for cows) last year in...

    Help Needed! Crazy Sneezing! A cold or allergies?

    So Ulysses started sneezing relentlessly about 2 days ago. My hubby has been doing the same for about 2 weeks, with every blooming plant in the state. For a minute there I thought they were just competing each other with the crazy sneezing, but Ulysses seems to be getting worse. Apart from the...

    URGENT!!! Privates infection???

    A few weeks ago Ulysses started dropping more than the normal amount of smegma. I took him to the vet and she gave me some sort of "wee-wee shower" I had to do for 5 days, it was basically to flush his pocket and try to keep it clean. She said it looked like a mild infection of his penis' pocket...

    General Question Acana vacuum sealed?

    For those of you who feed champion foods: do Acana and Orijen foods come always vacuum sealed/hermetically sealed or only sometimes? Last week I ordered from a new retailer and is the first time in a year that the food didn't come vacuum packed, so air just goes in and out. I thought it was odd...

    Help Needed! Bleeding paw!

    :cursing: I'm so upset! I just went out for a potty walk with Ulysses, and on our way back in I stopped to check my mail box, while standing outside a really rude guy who lives in our building opened the door suddenly and caught Uly's paw with the door. The dog jumped and did a weird sound but...

    Help Needed! Little worried... Smegma or what?

    I've seen a little more of that dark yellowish liquid (Smegma??) coming out of Ulysses' private for the past 2 weeks. I tried cleaning him twice a day and it seemed to stop for a few days. But now since last Sunday this stuff is kind of dripping out of his pee pee. I checked and the outside part...

    Groomers-phobia!

    Ulysses has been a little stinky since last weekend when he came home after spending a few days with his grandma. I used to shower him myself but he has become so heavy that that's not a possibility anymore. So I found this really professional looking grooming place. I visited it and it seemed...

    Help Needed! Weird skin thing on the top of his head

    I just realized that Ulysses has something that looks like a tiny black ,broccoli looking thing on his skin on the top of his head. I know it sounds awful, but it's about the size of a penny and almost impossible to see under all that hair. When I grabbed him from his collar I felt something...

    Better than going outside is to look outside :)

    Ulysses as any bully is a very noisy boy :D. This is the second time I catch him looking out of the window, climbing his way up through the sofa.... Here is my spider-monkey! :heart: Needles to say, he loves more to look out of the window than to actually go outside

He seemed fine the whole day and yesterday, just now I tried to hold him and he whined a little,...I don't know what or when could have happened,.... any ideas?? I'm on my...

    Advantix.. good or bad?

    Well, so we had our first tick of the season about a month ago, to be more exact on May 5th. It was on Ulysses' face so we had an emergency vet remove it. She put some Adventix on him, and we didn't really say no, cause we thought it was OK if it would keep the ticks and fleas and what not off...

    My Bully's prostate is enlarged.

    So today I found a drop of blood on the floor where Ulysses had been lying. After checking him all over I realized that it came out of his penis. That said, I packed my stuff and rushed to the vet. She first tried to examine his prostate, but apparently couldn't find it because it is enlarged...
