5 Signs that Indicate Your Bulldog Puppy is Sick

bulldog puppyYou have done everything correctly and taken care of your pup so well – however, given the fact that we all get sick, our pets are also prone to various types of illnesses.  Sometimes the symptoms can be difficult to detect, that is why it is very important that you pay attention to the early signs.

Discharge or Eye Buildup – This may indicate eye irritation or infection.  Look closely if the eye is turning red and observe the color of the discharge. If it’s yellow or green, your dog may need antibiotic eye drops.

Cough – Humans coughing could be a common sight.  However, if your pup starts to cough, it is a major red flag.  This usually indicates heartworms (and not because of the common cold).  Coughing can also be associated with other ailments, so it is best to see your vet immediately.

Vomiting – Some dogs throw up food especially if they have difficulty breathing.  Bulldogs who drink a lot of H20 can actually throw up some stomach acid that looks like foamy water.  But if your pet vomits almost every time and barfs everything he eats, then don’t wait much longer and bring him to the nearest pet hospital.  Aside from being dehydrated, he may have underlying conditions or even ingested something bad.

Diarrhea – The occasional soft stool in your pet is okay, maybe because of his diet.  However, if you notice consistent watery stool (especially if you see a trace of blood), don’t wait any longer and bring your pup to the vet for a stool exam.

Not Eating and Drinking – If we feel sick, we don’t have an appetite, the same thing goes with our pets.  This is a number one indication that something isn’t right.  They may be feeling pain or they may have caught a virus.  Don’t take any chances and call your veterinarian immediately.

Our pets are members of our family and we must take care of their health just like we do to our loved ones.   Always make sure to keep a close eye on your bulldog puppy especially when you notice any of these signs.
