Here are some practical health care suggestions for keeping your English Bulldog healthy:

Make routine visits to your veterinarian for vaccinations, deworming and heartworm preventative. This is a must!


Inspect facial wrinkles, ears and under tail daily and cleanse as needed. Baby wipes work great for this!


Trim nails to a moderate length as needed.


Learn how to identify ear problems. Early detection is key.


Do not allow your bulldog to become overheated. This can be fatal! Do not over-exercise your bulldog. Never leave them alone in a car or unsupervised outside. They must remain in air-conditioning in the summer months.

If your bulldog is panting excessively, try giving them a few ice cubes or spray their throat with a dilute lemon juice to cut the phlegm from blocking their airway.


Contact your vet immediately for vomiting, diarrhea, refusing to eat or drink or any other health concerns. It may mean preventing a serious illness.
