    Herschel Choking, Seizures, Or...?

    They have made mention of it through the years because he is a very loud breather. She did not offer it as a reason for the issue. What would the vet be evaluating?

    Herschel Choking, Seizures, Or...?

    Herschel is 8. We have always fed him kibble With no issues. In the past year he has began to have bouts with either choking, seizures or something else while eating. At first i thought seizure for sure. Then I noticed this always happens when he's eating or just finished eating so I thought...

    Grain Free and Heart Disease...

    I took Herschel to the vet today for his yearly and a skin booger. I mentioned that even after backing Herschel down to 3/4 cup of food that he has gained weight (He's 82 pounds at 6 years). She asked what, when and how much food. We feed him Fromm 1 time a day. He gets Turkey for the usual good...

    Herschel Holds A Grudge, Doesn't Like New Puppy...

    We got an 8 week old female pit on Monday. The first 3 days were bliss. They played and everything seemed good and then it happened, Herschel attacked. She may have bit him while he was lying down to start it off but now he has tried to get to her while we are just sitting around watching T.V...

    Breathing ?

    They did not. He asked if we have had his airway issue addressed. I told him he is only like this when he is away from the house. I do kind of blame them for keeping us waiting for so long as he continued to get louder, especially after comments about his breathing. Anyway, they did nothing. He...

    Breathing ?

    He's 5. We've been home for a couple hours now, I figured he would be settled down by now as he normally is.

    Breathing ?

    Anytime Herschel has to go to the vet, or anywhere out of the house he becomes overly excited. He had to go to the opthamologist this morning and the wait was long. His tem went up to 104.3 and of course his breathing was crazy. He is still snorting and breathing erratically, or heavy. IDK how...

    Entropion Surgery...

    After getting conflicting opinions about whether or not Herschel actually needed the surgery he started to develop and ulcer. We took him to an ophthalmologist, they stapled his eyes open and we scheduled the surgery. I am now having second thoughts because I am afraid for Herschel to be put...

    Entropion Question?

    I would love to get a second opinion. Our vet is n an affluent area and is not necessarily a bulldog specialist. We haven't had any issues with our vet yet but Herschel also hasn't been much of a problem. We haven't been given any recs for a bulldog vet in our area.

    Entropion Question?

    Our vet quoted 2100 bucks for the surgery including $200 blood work (thyroid). This seems high based on the internet research I've done, although those numbers are not bulldog specific. They also want to keep Herschel over night which I'm sure jacks up the price. Does this sound right? Recs for...

    Random Aggression... Holding A "Grudge"

    He is 3, and I wouldn't necessarily say it's a change in behavior as he has always been moody.

    Random Aggression... Holding A "Grudge"

    Herschel has random acts of aggression. I say random as in we're talking rarely aggressive, but he seems to remember triggers and elements that he may have become territorial over, even after the trigger is removed. One example would be a case of water bottles left on the floor. He was in rare...

    Fromm Sweet Potatoe & Duck

    I bought him a different Fromm today to see if that clears it up. This is just a recent thing over the last couple of days after switching flavors of his food. Although we dont let him get carried away, he's been getting into the other dog bowls since he was a pup.

    Fromm Sweet Potatoe & Duck

    Anyone have an issue with this food? We recently bought a bag and Herschel seemed to do ok with it the first couple of days. Days 3 and 4 he has been having the runs at night, very watery. He eats early in the morning so I would have thought a digestive issue would happen in the afternoon. He...

    Herschels Face Is A Mess...

    Herschel has issues with his face. He has some pretty good acne/"or" under his chin and the sides of his face, right at the bottom of his ropes, have apparently started bothering him. He has been scratching a rubbing quit abit to the point he is starting to mark himself up. It's just his face...

    Buttermilk...

    Thanks, everyone. Herschel seems to have an iron gut, thankfully. He has always eaten stuff we would not normally give him in one way or the other. We feed him Fromm but he gets into the other dogs "standard" food, actually seems to prefer it, he eats fruit that has fallen out of trees in the...

    Buttermilk...

    Do you give your dog buttermilk? I've read mixed opinions about it online, par for the course, but we always have some leftover after recipes and was trying to find good use for it.
