Important Information

Our puppies are dewormed from two weeks of age and repeated every 2 weeks during the first 3 months of life. Since there, must remain dewormed every 3 months during the remainder of his life.

They're vaccinated from one month old, and then they should be vaccinated every month during the first 4 months old. At six months should be vaccinated against rabies and then be vaccinated every year.


Depositions must be monitored to avoid potential puppy diarrhea and that can cause rapid dehydration and therefore a serious disorder. If it happens, you need to find the origin. It may be a sudden change in food or water, your puppy has swallowed a foreign body or spoiled food, etc. It is therefore advisable that if you have a change in the food or a change of puppy food to adult food, giving it the new food in smaller portions with more servings a day until the puppy adapts to the new food. This can happen in a week.

Diseases and Treatments

Just as important is the physical beauty of your puppy so is his/her health because they are 2 aspects that must be balanced for the healthy development of the animal. 
It is therefore important to know some of the most common diseases of this breed.


Fold Dermatitis (intertrigo): The repeated friction causes irritation and peeling, which together with the poor ventilation of these areas, warm temperatures and moisture existing glandular secretions and excretions (tears, saliva or urine) create an environment that promotes skin maceration and the growth of bacteria and even yeasts. 
There are different types of intertrigo, as it affected the fold which relies heavily on race. Sometimes there can be a nasty smell by the action of bacteria on the secretions.


Treatment: Frequent cleaning with antiseptic shampoo, being indicated the use of corticosteroid ointment in a very swollen. 
Once cured, if the crease cannot be removed, clean with soap and water the area regularly to prevent recurrence. In some cases, additional treatments can be used to decrease the size of the folds. 
To settle the problem, you need a surgical procedure.


Brachiocephalic Syndrome: Because of its unique anatomy such races may have difficulty breathing. Symptoms include breathing sounds, snoring, acid reflux, and cough. In severe cases there is increased difficulty breathing well and even faint bluish mucous membranes from lack of oxygen. Diagnosis is by physical examination, chest radiography, electrocardiogram, blood tests.

Its treat it with medication according to symptoms of each patient, usually anti-inflammatories and bronchodilators are used. Sometimes you have to resort to surgery. Is an anatomic defect and cannot be avoided, but at least you should avoid excessive exercise and not take a walk in hours of extreme heat.


Demodicosis: A skin disease caused by an overgrowth of a microscopic mite, parasite called Demodex canis. These mites are found in small numbers in the hair follicles of normal dogs. In dogs with demodicosis, however, these mites are multiplied by what is found in large amounts in skin and hair follicles. Dogs get these mites from their mother during breastfeeding immediately after birth. Puppies born by cesarean section do not have these mites.


In most cases are cured with treatment, but sometimes can only be controlled, requiring the periodic repetition of treatment.


Canine Hip Dysplasia: Hereditary disease and degenerative arthritis in various states ranging from minor pains to serious situations in addition to severe pain, cause the invalidated the entire animal. The canine hip dysplasia afflicts more than 50% of the purebred dog breed, the tendency is inherited, however, there are causes identified that trigger its development, food high in calories, excessive exercise and inappropriate in the infancy of the animal and overweight in infant and adult status.


Prolapse Third Eyelid Gland (Cherry eye): Dogs and cats have 2 lacrimal glands in each eye. The main produces 70% of the tear in most of the dogs and the third eyelid that produces 30% and is in the nasal edge of the eye beneath the eyelids. This small gland is anchored by connective tissue but in some dogs this tissue is weaker than normal and the gland loses its anchor and pop out, prolapses. This can appear in one or both eyes together and is a bundle of red-pink color in the corner of the eye nearest the nose. If the gland is left prolapsed, may occur chronic conjunctivitis, eye discharge, and decreased tear production.


Treatment: Surgery is required to reposition the gland in your site getting a good fit. This gland is not removed. There is nothing you can do to prevent this disease.


Keratoconjunctivitis: A chronic inflammatory disease of the cornea and conjunctiva due to deficient tear production. The outer transparent part of the eye (cornea) presents dry and can be very annoying and painful. It can occur even a partial or total loss of vision. The disease or destruction of the lacrimal glands may reduce tear production to levels below what would be healthy. The exact cause of dry eye or keratoconjunctivitis is unknown in most cases, however, may result from: Trauma, certain chemicals, certain infections, tumors, immune reactions, nerve degeneration.


In treating his patience and determination are important to the welfare of your pet because the right medical products to treat disease should be applied for weeks, months or even for life to succeed. Provide lubrication for the eye treatment is very important to maintain moisture of the cornea and transparency. If the normal production of tears is unattainable, an operation called transposition of the parotid gland duct may arise in certain cases. This operation is recommended when intense efforts are insufficient medication

 

Hemivertebrae and Intervertebral disc disease: Premature degeneration of the intervertebral disc, like hemivertebrae, is an all-too-common problem in French Bulldogs. In Sweden, research indicates that Frenchies are second only to Dachshunds in the incidence of disc disease, proportionate to the breeds' population sizes. No data are available for the frecuency of the condition in the United States Frenchie population; but it seems to be high here as well.

Researches believe that the breeds most commonly affected are the "chondrodystrophic" ones in which an abnormal development of the bones results in various skeletal disproportions, such as short legs and noses. In these breeds, chondrodystrophy predisposes the discs to being prematurely converted to an abnormal type of tissue, whose consistency is unsuitable for the discs' function. Then, in the parts of the back most subject to mechanical stress, these degenerated discs are liable to rupture or protrude.
