Bulldogs usually need to have C-sections in order to not die during whelping (and to prevent the puppies from dying). It will be very expensive and she will need a lot of care post-op, not to mention her puppies. If you feel like you or your grandparents can’t provide basically around the clock care, please give her to a bulldog rescue who will help her give birth, fix her, and get the puppies into homes.

You should take the dog to your house so that she can get the proper amount of supervision and care. I would tqlk to your vet more about wht to expect. She may encounter a difficult labor, so try to keep an eye on her and get her to a vet quickley if it looks like she is having trouble. Everything will be fine just stay vigilant! Good luck!

I second PPs… she should come to your house so that you can supervise the birth, at the very least.

@2013septemberbride:  Are Bulldogs free whelping?  I don’t think they are; you need to ask the vet about safe delivery options.  A c-section may be necessary – there are several breeds with this issue.

@2013septemberbride:  I used to live near a feral cat colony and one of my cats from that colony had kittens. To be honest, you don’t have to do much. They do it all themselves! Just provide them with all the “nesting” stuff they need and let them get on with it, especially as the vet has already said she will be OK. Good luck!

@MrsPanda99:  my FI is the same way. he is bulldog obsessed.

OP, I suggest you either see if you can get the vet or one of their techs to come supervise the birth, or just be vigilant. ask the vet what to expect, call the vet to warn them when she goes into labor, hang around while she’s whelping and if anything out of the ordinary happens take her right to the vet.
