I loved your page on english bulldog care and it helped my bulldog a lot. Specifically the information you provided on how to take care of bulldog folds and curing infections in the wrinkles and around the tail. I’m now wondering if you know of any home remedies I can use for daily care of my bulldog’s facial folds. I think from what I gathered from your care page that while the malacetic wipes can be used on a regular basis in the wrinkles, it may not be necessary unless there is an actual infection of some kind setting in. So if you are aware of anything simple that I can use at home that would be great. I would like to save the malacetic wipes (which are amazing by the way) for a rainy day if I can.
Thanks for the compliments Mallory! Natural remedies for Bulldog wrinkle care. Yes, I’m sure there are a ton and everyone’s got their own ideas, but we have a couple awesome at home remedies for bulldog wrinkle care that can be used if infection hasn’t yet set in.
- Get yourself some hibitane/hibiscrub. dilute a small portion in water and clean the skin folds with this a few times each week
- Add 1 teaspoon salt in 1 pint of warm water and you’ll have a cleansing agent of 0.9% saline solution which then can be used to clean the skin folds/wrinkles.Most importantly. Make sure the skin in between the folds is dried thoroughly after cleaning. As we mentioned in the english bulldog care article, bacteria require warmth and moisture to replicate so by drying the skin you’ll be helping to prevent further infection.
I will say, though, that if any infection or smell from yeast has set in, you better use the malacetic wipes listed on the Bulldog Care page first. Once your infection has cleared up you can use the above remedies as a regular care regiment.
