Bulldogs: Panting Bulldog, old english bulldog, allegeries
old english bulldog, allegeries, tavist: Tavist has the same side effects as Benadryl so I can t imagine why your dog would be panting.

antibody protection, maternal immunity, incubation period: Hi Irish, Here is an explanation of Parvo and puppies, hope this helps to figure out if it contacted it at new home or had it incubating at your house,?

Bulldogs: Patella Luxation, patellas, lameness

english bulldog, pink skin, skin infection: The pink skin may be nothing at all. If it gets itchy, or the hair starts to fall out, then have a vet take a look.

obedience classes, pit bull, socialization: This behavior is unacceptable. It s a bit late for obedience classes, but they would probably help.

Bulldogs: Possibly pregnant 9 mo Olde English Bulldogge, olde english, unsupervised
olde english, unsupervised, golden retriever: What I think is that you should have been more responsible when your dog was in heat and not allowed her outside unsupervised until you were sure the cycle was over.

Bulldogs: Post Soft Pallet Surgery, soft pallet, patient surgery
soft pallet, patient surgery, death situation: I think I would have been hard pressed to put a 7.5 yr. old Bulldog through palate resectioning unless it was a life or death situation.

Bulldogs: Potty Training, long periods of time, human interaction
long periods of time, human interaction, days of the week: It s very unfair to expect a puppy this age to go all day without being able to get outside to the bathroom.

puppy puppies, wits end, bad situation: First of all, you probably should have considered the little time you have before you got a puppy. Puppies require time, patience and training.

torn acl, vet visit, rear foot: The dog could have a torn ACL or with a little luck, just a strained ACL. He needs crate rest and leash walking only. It may take weeks for this to heal but he must be kept as quiet as possible. There s no way to judge what s going on without an xray and don...

Bulldogs: red bumps all over?, old english bulldog, laundry soap
old english bulldog, laundry soap, lawn fertilizer: He s pretty young for pyoderma and/or demodectic mange, but it s not out of the question.

Bulldogs: rescued bulldog is a bully, dogue de bordeaux, british bulldog
dogue de bordeaux, british bulldog, male dogs: This Bulldog has been passed around and in the pound already. There was a reason he was there in the first place obviously.

Bulldogs: respiratory distress d/t allergies?, benadryl, respirations
benadryl, respirations, breathing difficulties: There s really no reason to use Benadryl as she doesn t have allergies. It dries up the mucus membranes, that s all.

Bulldogs: what are my rights, quality akc, quality parents
quality akc, quality parents, registration papers: The CKC is a despicable registry IMO.
