Hi there, we have a (almost) 2 year old EB. We got him from what we believed to be a reputable breeder. ( won't name names as of yet). Unfortunately our poor boy has had a multidue of health issues in his short little life. Numerous skin issues/infections, prolapsed urethra x3 (surgically repaired each time), had to have his nares and soft pallet done, and most recently gastric ulcers. We were actually in the middle of organizing to get another puppy from the same breeder when he got sick the last time and our vet bills made it impossible to purchase another. We explained this to our breeder and they didn't have much to say about his health issues - just that maybe we could work something out with the second puppy(same mom as our first). So this got me thinking, as someone who says they breed for health, should they not have checked up on how our boy was doing at say 6months, a year, etc? How do you know if the puppies you are breeding are healthy if you don't know anything about them past 8 weeks? I don't believe any of his health issues are their fault and I'm aware of common Bulldog health issues. I just am now finding that it is strange, and we do want to get a second one eventually - just want to hear the standard for breeders.
