I am interested in breeding our 3 year old English bulldog, sammy, in hopes of getting another girl to add to our family. We don't want to do it for the money as much as the experience and to find a companion to our Bulldog. I'm not really sure to start. My wife says I'm crazy although she too wants another female bulldog. Where do I start and my main question is Do I need a license from the state to breed bulldogs? Do I need to have my home inspected by the american kennel club or aspca or something? Any info you might have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Our girl keeps getting really red ears with nasty black gunk all throughout no matter how often I clean them. Some days one ear is black and some days both of them are horribly dirty. The veterinarian said yeast infections are what she keeps getting. I've been putting the medication they gave us to her and  it clears the gunk and ear infections for a few days then they're right back again anyone have this problem. I would really like to find a cheap home remedy for these constant infections.

Ally is our first bulldog. We adopted her a year ago in october and recently I've noticed she is doing something gross. She has been eating her poop. Why would she be doing this? Is there sometime lacking in her diet that her body needs?

Our Bulldog, Ruby has had the third UTI since she was one year of age. Has anyone thought to use cranberry juice for their bulldog like you would to treat human urinary tract infections?

Bulldog Head Shaking">
Bulldog Head Shaking
My bulldog's (Mally) head always bobs up and down especially when she's sleeping. She developed this new behaviour about a week ago and it hasn't stopped. Obviously we're just about ready to take her to the vet, but are just searching online to see if we can come up with something first.  She is 3 years old now. We feed her science diet and never table scraps. We also give her a vitamin once a day. It's just an all in one vitamin and is AKC brand. She's been on the vitamins for about 1 year so I don't think that's a problem. At first we thought this was her just dreaming, then maybe seizures and now after all this head shaking we're kind of freaked out and getting a little worried. Sometimes the head bobs up and down and other times is shakes more consistently and faster. Please let me know if you have any advice or if you've heard of this head bobbing with bulldogs before. - Megan *Notice- this question was lost, but later restored by Dan Weese

Food for my English Bulldog">
Food for my English Bulldog
By:
I have a 5 month old English Bulldog.  She was eating Iams, which was what the breeder has her on.  She started recently to have diarrhea and the vet is concerned that she could have IBD.  The good news, the vet said, is that puppies grow out of IBD.  I decided to switch her food anyway.  I just recently bought Merrick, grain-free, pork and sweet potato.  I feel confident in this brand; however there is a fairly high protein content.  I had read a few articles about how Bulldogs should not have food with too high of a protein content, but other articles contradicted this.  I am wondering what the truth is.  If you could please shed any light on this subject matter, it would greatly be appreciated.  Thank you!

Blue Bulldog Eyes and Genetics">
Blue Bulldog Eyes and Genetics
By:
I have a bulldog that has one blue eye and one brown eye. When we bought her we thought the eyes were cool. everybody loved them in fact, but now I've been hearing that blue eyes in bulldogs mean they have a genetic problem of some kind. Is it true that bulldogs with blue eyes have been inbred? I like many have gotten my dog from someone other than what is probably an honest breeder and just want to do right by my bulldog. Awaiting your answer...

When To Spay My Bulldog">
When To Spay My Bulldog

Should I have my bulldog spayed before or after her fist heat cycle? I want to get the timing right. Also, even though I'm pretty set on having her fixed, is there ever an instance besides for breeding purposes that it's in the dog's best interest not to get her fixed? I've heard of complications like cancer. Thanks

Glue My Bulldog’s Ears?">
Glue My Bulldog’s Ears?
By:
Hey my name’s Steve. Just got a Bulldog puppy (Charles) in my home state of Indiana and he is now 12 weeks old. I’ve noticed as he has begun to grow that his ears don’t look quite right and don’t seem to sit correctly on his head. Now, the pet store I purchased him from seems to have closed so I can’t ask them for info on this topic. I know after researching more into the breed I probably shouldnt have made my purchase from a pet store and I regret that. What I heard online is that you can glue or even tape the Bulldog’s ears down so that they grow correctly or in the right direction? Honestly this sounds pretty mean so I don’t want to do it, but heard that the ears not being right may cause health issues in my bulldog’s ears. Please tell me this is not something I have to do to my dog! It really sounds like abuse. Just not sure. Anyone have an answer? Please Please respond to this post! Thank you!! - StevO 23

Alopecia">
Alopecia
By:
Our Bulldog started developing a bilateral, alopecia on her sides, also known as flank alopecia.  It started as small spots that looked like pock marks, then they kept progressing until she had large, hairless patches on each of her sides.  We were told they were mostly likely seasonal and due to diminished amounts of sunlight but they would mostly self resolve after a few months.  The spots have, at times, started to appear to be resolving only to persist.  We changed her food to a healthier brand.  We are now changing her shampoo based off the recommendation of this site.  Could the alopecia be caused by some sort of skin infection or bacteria?  I am consider rubbing her sides with the malacetic wipes.  Any thoughts or advice are much appreciated.  Thank you!!!
