Caring For Your English Bulldogs
Nutrition is essential to a happy, healthy, and long lived English Bulldog. Please take a look at our NuVet Vitamins for further information about nutrition and reccomended dietary products. Alternatively, we have also found Merrick dog food to be great for the health of your pet.
English Bulldogs are very sensitive to heat. They need good air flow and air conditioned environments. If it’s 80 degrees or higher or the humidity is high your English bulldog could overheat. Always supervise the trips outside and keep physical activity limited. Extreme cold weather can be as taxing on your pet as extreme heat, so you need to supervise them in either extreme.
Bulldogs are not swimmers, they need to be kept away from deep pools or risk drowning. A kid pool with a small amount of water, such as a few inches, is often a welcome site to an English Bulldog, but deep pools can be hazardous to the breed. Breeding English Bulldogs is an expensive and dangerous venture for them.
Breeding is not recommended for the average pet owner. Caesarian deliveries are needed, and the breeding process can be fatal to an English Bulldog if not handled by a professional who has experience with the breed. Male dogs, due to the bullie’s unique anatomy, frequently have the inability to mate. As such, many liters require artificial insemination.

Bulldogs are known to have adorable wrinkles on their faces. This is what they are known for but in order to properly care for your English Bulldog you need to clean between them with mild soap. A damp wash cloth works well just be sure not to get your bullie’s eyes in the process. Dry the area well and if it becomes irritated Goldbond or Desitin cream will help, cleaning up to twice daily. The tail of your English bulldog must also be cleaned or it can turn into a problem area that could lead to infection.
