How To Choose A Vet For Your French Bulldog

Your French bulldog dog or frenchie puppy will be just like one of the family, and just like the rest of your family, you will want to provide them with the best medical treatment available whenever they are sick. The question is, how do you find the correct veterinarian for your dog or puppy?

It is essential that you look for a veterinarian who is familiar with the French bulldog and its unique medical needs because these dogs are prone to a number of unique health issues. One of these issues is that French bulldogs have a shorter respiratory system than other dog breeds, which can give them breathing problems and of course interfere with anaesthesia.

Most vets will know a vast amount of information on any particular breed and how to treat and deal with problems associated with that breed, but it is worthwhile double checking this and choosing your vet before they are needed.

How do I find the right vet?

The breeder who you got your puppy from can often give you information on particular vets which know your breed of dog, however very often you will have travelled quite a distance for your puppy especially if it is a certain breed such as the French bulldog.

If the breeder can’t recommend a vet within easy travelling distance then you could do a search online either for a vet just in your vicinity or a vet which has knowledge about your particular breed. You can also check in the yellow pages under vets and animal hospitals, all vets will have to be certified to meet certain requirements especially in fields such as surgery, cardiology or ophthalmology.

Once you have found one or two vets within travelling distance you should make an appointment to visit the practice, the vet should be more than willing to meet you and let you see the facility and meet your dog or puppy. Here are some general points you should look for when choosing a vet :

  • Is the facility clean, well organised and does it feel comfortable.
  • Are the members of staff friendly and do they seem happy in their work.
  • Do you have to have an appointment to see the vet.
  • How many veterinarians are there in the practice.
  • Do they understand the problems associated with your French bulldog.
  • Is the staff competent and calm.
  • What are the fees.
  • Are x ray, blood work and other diagnostic treatment available on the premises.

Don’t be afraid to ask the vet and the staff any questions or concerns that you have and talk with them about the problems associated with your frenchie, a reputable vet will be well aware of the problems surrounding a particular breed and know how to deal with them if they should occur.

You should take your dog or puppy with you when you visit so they can become accustomed to one another without any actual treatment been given, this way your dog or puppy won’t associate a trip to the vets with pain or discomfort.

😍 These gadgets are on my Frenchie’s wishlist, maybe your Frenchie needs them too? 🥰

✅ We laughed so hard we had tears rolling down our cheeks. Watch funny clips HERE

✅ My Frenchie has been self-conscious about his hair for years. He finally has the confidence to go on walks now. Other dogs don’t even know it’s a wig! What a steal!! LOL

✅ These matching sweaters are absolutely adorable. Fits my 22lb French bulldog like a glove, his shirt is super soft.

✅ Lots of folks said it was the cutest thing they had seen in a long time! It came with adjustable straps just in case the Frenchie gains weight (again.)

✅ Safety first, right? My Frenchie loves bike rides in the backpack but not so much in the rain, this Goggle/Hemlet set really helps keep the rain out of the eyes and ears.

Omg too cute😍 I do not need to explain why your Frenchie needs it right?

The hoodie is really well made and super soft fleece-lined! My Frenchie has been in it for hours, which is not common… safe to say it is puppy approved!

✅ You only need this one high-quality water-resistant jacket for Winter. Necessary piece. Make sure you check out the reviews to get the right size instead of keeping returning.

✅ There are built-in ear holes for comfort, which is how my Frenchie usually wears it, but sometimes we just have to keep those ears covered up and keep the heat in on the super-cold days. 

This playpen is a life saver! They can be linked together if desired to create a larger pen. 

✅ No animal should have to sleep on the floor and hurt or be cold. I asked my Frenchie for a review – unfortunately he’s too busy snoring, farting and sleeping on it to answer me…lol

✅ This is a fantastic car seat w lots of clever features. The entire seat can collapse to fit into its own carrying bag, though it’s easily put together again in 30 sec. The cover that the dogs rest on is silky soft faux fur which doesn’t seem to snag dirt and debris. It easily zips out for washing, and during the summer you can reverse the cover so the canvas side is up and not the fur. The pillow that boosts the dogs up in the seat has a soft foam side akin to memory foam. It’s very roomy and well made for a small Frenchie.

The couch is stylish and lightweight but definitely sturdy. As an added bonus the legs have non-skid pads on the bottom so it won’t slide when he gets in and out of it. Holding up pretty good even when Frenchie digs in it…

✅ Let me do you a favor and let you know that you NEED this NOW!!! It was very comfortable for me at this height. No pain or awkward positions and I didn’t get soaked.

✅ I don’t remember seeing any other pet strollers using this kind of high-end wheels. Perfect for the small puppy that is old or can’t walk much.
