@weddingbound:  Aww, good for you for fostering!  You are totally right, he’s an awesome little butterball.  I hate it when people get fancy bred dogs (or any dog, really…or any pet…) and then fail to take care of them – it’s like, you could shell out $1000 for a puppy but not $10/month for heartworm preventative and allergy meds?!

@weddingbound:  Thank you thank you THANK YOU!

 

I do bulldog rescue. We have about 6 foster dogs through our house each year. Our current foster dog has terrible skin problems as well and is ALSO 3 years old! Our current guy is such a doll that I’m pretty sure we’ll be keeping him and that means we won’t be able to do fostering any more because that makes 4 dogs for us.

I really feel that I’m letting the foster group down because it’s harder to find foster homes than adoptive homes. However, this bulldog needs us. He’ll be on medication the rest of his life for allergies and that’s $75 a month and I want to make sure he STAYS on it.

I’m not an advocate that every dog needs to be saved where there is extensive health problems, but T. Bear is young and is the silliest, best bulldog there is and he deserves this chance.

Here he is:

 

 

 

 

 

You can’t tell from these photos, but believe me, this is one happy, clownish dog! He is loving and silly and funny! These photos make him look like a sad sack.

@weddingbound:  That is so cool of you to foster such a sweet doggie. I love bulldogs so much. They are low to the ground and have the cutest faces. 

I have a question though…Does the place you volunteer at provide you with this meds, reimberse you for them or does his treatment come out of you and your DH’s pocket?

@weddingbound:  Poor pup!  Give us an update in a month or two after you have given him proper TLC and he’s back in tiptop shape!

@weddingbound:  The first, and easiest thing to do, is remove him from any food containing corn. Perhaps you already feed a corn-free food, that’s pretty common.

 

These skin issues take a lot of time and patience to diagnose. I’m going to a specialist with T.Bear. We have not diagnosed the problem, but he’s on a lifetime allergen maintenance med called Atopica. It took 6 WEEKS to kick in and completely stabilize him, but now his condition is stable. H’ll never grow hair back in the affected areas, but I’m fine with that and so it he. He doesn’t scratch, he enjoys life, and that’s what it’s about.

That’s funny that you took a photo of all of his meds because that’ what I felt like doingwith T. Bear’s meds. At first he was on a counter full of drugs and he still gets 4 pills a day.

Ive never had a bulldog with severe skin problems, this one is my first. We get a lot of healthy bulldogs coming through rescue, believe it or not!

@PermaStudent:  So be it, when you adopt an animal you do so for the rest of their life in my opinion.
