Anesthesia in bulldogs and French bulldogs is riskier than other dog breeds because in bulldogs the upper muscle of respiration becomes relaxed and inactive during general anesthesia. This inactivity is not a problem for most dogs since they have the ability to maintain respiration passively, however, this isn’t the case for your English Bulldog or French Bulldog.
Here is Lukum, 5 years old french bulldog who got his first non anesthetic dental cleaning with us 🙂
With a professional dental cleaning and follow-up care, gingivitis is reversible. Periodontal disease is not reversible, but diligent at-home dental care and regular cleanings can slow down the progression of the condition.
Here are some of our latest patients: #germanshepherd #yorkshireterrier #cavalierkingcharlesspaniel #chihuahua #frenchbulldog #vizsla
Biki is one of our oldest patients, he’17 1/2 years old and got his teeth cleaned. Anesthesia is obviously not an option but it’s ok he got a fresh clean smile for his mommy.
Older dogs often experience changes in skin, coat and even their nails. Their skin can become dry and their coat more coarse. A supplement of coconut or salmon oil with meals can go a long way to solving the problem.
Here is Zeus, 5 years old nicest, sweetest chow-chow mix, getting his teeth cleaned anesthesia free regularly. Very good patient 🙂 #chowchow
