Bulldogs: How much do I feed?, australian bulldog, last meal
australian bulldog, last meal, 10 months: First of all, a puppy this age should be eating 3 times a day. I feed mine all they can eat in 5 minutes and then pick up the food.

Bulldogs: feeding, nutro, bulldog
nutro, bulldog, diet: There s no reason to change his food if he s doing well. You may think he s tired of it because he s not as excited about eating as he was when he was younger. Changing his food will only get his attention for a week or so and then he ll be right back to the...

pigs ears, kong toys, best toys: She acts like she s starving because she is! First of all she should be eating 3 times a day until she s about 6 months old. Then you can go to twice a day for another 3 months and then once a day is fine. I always tell people to feed a puppy all they can...

Bulldogs: feeding my english bulldog, purina puppy chow, intestinal virus
purina puppy chow, intestinal virus, english bulldog: The breeder should have either given you some of the food he is used to or at least told you what he was eating.

Bulldogs: feeding pregnant bulldog, kibble, cooked chicken
kibble, cooked chicken, quality food: I feed my females regular dry kibble right up until 2 weeks before their due date.

Bulldogs: feeding, puppy food, alarming rate
puppy food, alarming rate, doing the right thing: You purchased a large breed dog and she will grow at an alarming rate for the first few months. I would cut back to 3 meals a day or free feed her.

Bulldogs: feedings, quality puppy, puppy food
quality puppy, puppy food, good eating habits: Puppies need puppy food.

Bulldogs: female bulldog aggression, loving dogs, totum pole
loving dogs, totum pole, territorial behavior: It is never a good idea to bring in an adult female where there is already a female in residence especially since Tink has grown up in your home.

female pit, vaginal area, heat cycle: This is perfectly normal. The heat cycle lasts 21 days. The swelling will begin to go down around the 15th day or so. Not all dogs are the same in this regard.

Bulldogs: female red nose Pittie, human tube, doggie diapers
human tube, doggie diapers, heat cycle: There is considerable bleeding involved in a heat cycle and it lasts for 3 weeks, twice a year. My best suggestion is to get your female spayed and enjoy her.

Bulldogs: fighting bullies, territorial thing, food dish
territorial thing, food dish, spayed: I hear these stories more and more these days. I can t explain why some dogs will get along forever and some suddenly turn on each other.

quality puppy, puppy food, yogurt: I ve never heard this one before. The yogurt isn t bad for the puppy but I have no idea what an egg a day would be beneficial. If you re feeding a quality puppy food, there s no need for either of these things. If you feel ok about it, at least stop the egg....

Bulldogs: food for english bulldog, large breed puppy food, breed puppy
large breed puppy food, breed puppy, objective evidence: You want to keep his weight down as much as possible while he s still growing. More weight means more stress on joints and organs.

purina pro plan, dry dog food, english bulldog: 24 lbs. isn t necessarily heavy for a puppy this age, but I have no way of knowing that without seeing her.

Bulldogs: what foods are best for english bulldogs, growth spurt, puppy food

new babies, dry food, brother and sister: Start by feeding them 5 times a day so they aren t quite so hungry between meals. Then after a couple of days, just start leaving food down all the time.

quality diet, maximum growth, bulldogs: This is quite heavy for a puppy this age. There s no way for me to tell how big he will get without knowing his parents. I do want to caution you about fast growth and too much weight. Bulldogs joints are terrible and if you put too much stress on them...

Bulldogs: good match for our bulldog, play buddy, bulldog
play buddy, bulldog, bulldogs: Avoid breeds who will be much larger and more active, like a Lab perhaps. They will exhaust a Bulldog puppy. A Pug perhaps or another medium sized dog with a little more energy. A play buddy will do a Bulldog good as long as they play is supervised and the...

Bulldogs: growth rate, akc bulldogs, bones and joints
akc bulldogs, bones and joints, olde english: Are these AKC Bulldogs? The sizes are huge and I m wondering if you re talking about Olde English Bulldogges?

Bulldogs: Hair loss, bald patch, knee cap
bald patch, knee cap, exact place: Just to be on the safe side, I would have your vet do a skin scraping to make sure it isn t mange which could be brought on by the stress of an injury like this. If there s no sign of mites, then chances are it s nothing serious and the hair will grow back...

Bulldogs: Head shaking, spinal cord compression, old english bulldog

ebd, good boy, couches: He s trained you to play the game with him. When you get the harness on him leave it on for a few days. When you go to put it back on, if he runs, refuse to chase him. Ignore him. Stand by the door like you re ready to go out and if he comes over, make...

Bulldogs: House breaking, crate training, loud voice
crate training, loud voice, eight months: This is a really hard one. I m assuming this dog is neutered. If not, he should be.

viable sperm, american bulldogs, american bulldog: A healthy male can produce viable sperm before he s a year old, but I would suggest waiting until he s at least a year and a half before using him for breeding.

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.

Bulldogs: Shots, short attention span, having a bad day
short attention span, having a bad day, strict schedule: You didn t mention how old the puppy is, but he must still be very young. This isn t unusual behavior at all.

Bulldogs: Skin & Eyes, olde english bulldog, old mother hubbard
olde english bulldog, old mother hubbard, shampoo and conditioner: This sounds like a cherry eye issue. Antibiotics definitely won t help.

bulldog club of america, soft pallet, english bulldog: Don t be rushing off to a vet just yet. The noise she s making sounds like a backwards sneeze correct?

Bulldogs: Soft Pallet Surgery, soft pallet, snub nosed dog
soft pallet, snub nosed dog, wads: There are some vets who insist that all Bulldogs should have soft pallet resectioning. I disagree. The surgery, if absolutely necessary, won t always be the answer to snoring. This is a rather normal thing with a snub nosed dog. Often puppies will grow...

Bulldogs: Stomach problems after surgery, old english bulldog, soft palette
old english bulldog, soft palette, soft palate: This is just my opinion, but I believe the dog was under anesthesia too long. Those surgeries combined take hours generally.
