Feed the puppy twice a day, allow the puppy to eat all it want. I feel if the puppy is leaving a small amount of food in the
bowl it is getting enough to eat, pick up the bowl. Start out with 1 to 1 ½ cups a day and increase as the puppy gets
older. If the food does not interest the puppy try mixing in a jar of chicken baby food , Mighty Dog Gourmet, or little champs
ground chicken. If the puppy gets loose stooles add 100% pumpkin to the food. Just a spoonful right on top.
2. Always take the puppy out immediately after eating to
3. Due to humidity and heat, PLEASE
do not let your puppy outside by itself. The number one killer of bulldogs is heatstroke. These are inside pets.
4. If you have a pool, be extremely careful. Many people
have lost their bullies in their pool. They are top heavy and sink.
5. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR VETERINARIAN ADMINISTER BORDETELLA INJECTION OR NASAL UNTIL THE
PUPPY IS 4-5 MO. OLD. Your puppy will come down with upper respiratory. If the puppy needs surgery such as spay/neutering
, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Brimacomb of Lakeland Fl. (863) 644-6634 Not all Veterinarians can do surgery on bulldogs. If not
residing in this area please contact me so I can help find a reliable bulldog veterinarian in your area.
6. Do not take your puppy to public places until it has
received all vaccinations. I.e. PetSmart, Dog Park
