Anybully watch "The Flight Attendant" on HBO max and notice
the adora-bull stuffed toy bulldog? We have that exact one (got
it at Ikea years ago), and I was sooo tickled to see it on this show!
I just HAD to take piks! :p (sorry for poor quality---these
were the best ones out of MANY attempts!)
I'm so curious what everybully else does! Meaty is 12 and 1/2 now,
and in the PAST--- it took vet, staff member, AND hubby to get the
But he recently snapped at a vet tech just
for something simple, so I think the ONLY way they'll attempt a nail
trim is sedation---NO way...
I'm curious how many here have experienced this? We have seen
a few different vets for different reasons, plus--with fostering, we
had to go to specific vets that we didn't choose.
Everybully here knows how *a LOT* of the general
public get sooo excited and happy when they see a bulldog.
Our precious ten-year-old was recently diagnosed with collapsed trachea and
bronchiectasis. Our vets are pawsome, and we trust them implicitly; HOWEVER,
it is always nice to hear peoples' personal stories! I'd reallllly appreciate any
info, tips, what worked, what didn't. How...
Amazing that 8 days have passed already since our precious 9-year-old Sophie went to the Rainbow Bridge. Hubbs and I have shed many tears, and we're also looking for signs that our 11-year-old bulldog Meaty is grieving. He hasn't shown any signs yet--- but it breaks my heart even MORE to think...
PLEASE, PLEASE watch your babies for TICKS !!!!!!!!
**UPDATE 2 days later ** (6/13/20)
Our precious 9-year-old girl crashed in the critical care unit when she
stopped breathing. They intubated her, but she did not make it.
:( She had been at the specialty hospital overnight and had done...
Hi, I had a conversation with a dear, very close friend last night, and something
she said is REALLLY bugging me! I will definitely be talking to her about how much it bothered me, but I'd like to hear from others who've been through this.
She's known the loss of beloved dogs---as a matter of...
We always knew that NSAIDs can have the horri-bull side effect of stomach bleeding (and other bad ones!) , plus, we know that black stools mean "old blood". Anyway, we weren't home when it happend, but Thursday at 5:00, DH came home to find Sophie sleeping peacefully and in NO distress, but...
Hello everybully :)
Ugh, we are struggling A LOT with treatment options for our precious, 8-year-old Sophie. We already
knew she has a subluxating patella (floating kneecap), plus, since she's almost 8 (WHERE did EIGHT years go ! ? ! !?...)
we assume she has general arthritis.
In the last...
Our sweet Sophie is having a grid keratotomy for a corneal ulcer tomorrow. It is SUPPOSED to be
a simple, 1/2 hour procedure and does NOT require general anesthesia (yippeeee!) but she will be sedated.
I trust and love our vet, annnd he is very aware of bulldogs' special
anesthesia needs! But...
These are all older piks.
Meaty's thinking "really, Mom ???!!!! :D
Princess Leia was our FIRST foster back in 2015, with our Sophie ( in yellow)
Sophie was NOT havin' it !!! :D
Verrrry old pik (7 years ago!) Sophie was only a couple months old.
Our sweet Meaty is almost 10, and has terri-bull arthritis in his elbows and spine :( He's on LOTS of meds, and he's also had cold lazer therapy that didn't help. Our vet assures us he's NOT suffering. IF he were suffering..... well, we all know the best thing to do.
Anyhoo, my pawsomely...
Awww.....this is big brother Meaty (age 8) and Sophie on her birthday on April 3rd.
We're EXTRA thankful because she was VERY sick this time last year and spend 2 weeks
in the hospital. ((( hugs )))) to everybully :)
Our sweet Meaty has had THREE incidences in his 8 years where something (?)** stung him, and his face swelled quickly, which we all know can lead to the throat closing. Each time, we gave him Benadryl immediately and RUSHED him to the closest emergency vet. Thank God, his throat never...
Hi everybully. Our 8-year-old, adora-bull Meaty started limping a few weeks ago, and the first vet Xray'd and diagnosed himz with arthritis of one elbow, one hip, and spine. He's had six Adequan injections, and after that,
the vet started him on a new arthritis med called "Galliprant" along...
Hi......I'd love to hear from anybully who's familiar with this new arthritis med---GALLIPRANT and/or
another med called ADEQUAN?
Our sweet 8-year-old Meaty just started on the Galliprant yesterday----hope it helps! Himz recently started
limping, and our vet did Xrays and said himz has...
(( HUGS )) to everybully who's struggling with the sadness of missing a furbaby(ies!)
The guy on the left, and girl in the middle are our personal doggies that we've had since puppy-hood, and that adora-bull guy on the right only came to us last March. He was succch a blessing to us; we had to...
Hi everybully....I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Hubbs and I have NO experience with eldery doggies, nor have we ever been through the heartbreak of euthanasia. Our precious guy Professor adopted us
8 months ago---we adore him sooo much (do I even need to say that? LOL!) Our rescue...
I LOVE this site and have been reading it for several years! And now I FINALLY
joined!!! Nice to meet everybully! :D
