Focusing on bulldog health is an important aspect of pet bulldog ownership. Keeping them healthy and happy is essential to a long relationship with your pet. Below, we have included five health tips to keep your bulldog in the best shape possible.

How To Keep Your Bulldog Healthy

As a breed, bulldogs are prone to many health issues, like hip dysplasia, cancers, and respiratory infections. These make their costs of care especially expensive. As always, contact your veterinarian if something doesn’t seem right with your bulldog. Keep up with their yearly vet visits and vaccinations. Here are five tips to help you with their health care at home.

1. Keep Them At A Healthy Weight

Even though bulldogs can’t exercise for very long each day, developing obesity will make other health issues worse. Make sure you are feeding them the right amount of daily calories and taking them on short walks twice a day.

2. Keep Them Cool

Because of their short faces and the associated breathing problems, bulldogs do not resist heat very well. Make sure to keep them cool and indoors during the hot summer months. An automatic thermostat will help you keep them cool if you aren’t at home with them.

3. Clean Their Wrinkles

The wrinkles on a bulldog’s face are adorable. The downside is the tendency for those wrinkles to pick up dirt, bacteria, and other things which may irritate their sensitive skins. Use a cotton swab and a gentle cleaning agent every day to prevent dermatitis and allergic skin reactions on your bulldog’s face.

4. Consider A Raw Food Diet

Though it isn’t for every owner, bulldog owners who have switched to a raw food diet report fewer digestive health issues like gas, healthier skin, and increased energy for their bulldog. In any case, feed your bulldog a high-quality food with plenty of animal protein.

5. Stick With Them

Bulldogs are a naturally affectionate breed. Not being around their owners for long periods of time may cause them stress and loneliness. Make sure to spend a lot of time with your bulldog, playing, exercising, training, or just snuggling.
