Bulldogs Health Insurance

The Bulldog is an iconic breed closely associated with the British Isles where it originated. Sometimes this breed can be mistaken for an American Bulldog which is a breed of very similar appearance.

Although a number of people wrongly assume that they might be aggressive, the Bulldog is very much the opposite. They are in fact docile, friendly and loving dogs. It is often found that they grow to love their owners so much that they will only go outdoors if their owners are with them. They are very happy to be at home and surrounded by their human 'pack'.

As a breed they are the most likely of all types of dogs to suffer from hip dysplasia. This affects the joints and can cause them a lot of pain, often resulting in arthritis. Some dogs of this breed can also suffer from Interdigital Cysts. This sees cysts form inbetween their toes, but it can be easily treated with medication.

Bulldogs are instantly recognised by their winkled faces. It is important that you regularly clean inbetween these folds of skins in order to prevent them from getting any infections which can be caused when natural oils build up on the surface. Some Bulldogs have tightly curled tails that tend to lie close to their bodies, and these will also need regular cleaning.

If you plan on using your Bulldog for breeding then you need to be aware that it is common for the mothers to have a Caesarean section. This is because the dogs' characteristically large heads can often become stuck during birth.

Making sure that your Bulldog gets sufficient exercise will help them to live a healthy life and prevent them from becoming overweight. This will also decrease the chances of them suffering joint problems. The more weight the dogs' joints have to carry, the greater the likelihood of problems.
