Dr. Kraemer Bulldogs and French Bulldogs Specialist
Dr. Kraemer Bulldogs and French Bulldog Specialist’s life story describes his love of pets and animal care, teaching, academia, veterinary career, bulldog rescue, bulldog specialty, bulldog and French bulldog preventive care, and much more.
Dr. Kraemer Bulldogs and French Bulldogs Specialist GROWIN UP:
Both his parents grew up in the city; his dad, a Harvard law school attorney, and his mom, a UK citizen with a degree in English literature, moved the family to a farming community where he was born and raised, surrounded by animals and pets.
Dr. Kramer’s First Pet
His first pet was a large Golden Retriever I named “Big”. He was a master burglar and knew which neighbor on which day baked a cake. Big would wait until they left the house; he would then jump on their door handles, enter their homes, and feast on the newly baked, sweet, freshly made pastry. Those lip-smacking missions were literally “a piece of cake” for him.
My dad cared for Big when I was away, and when Big passed, my dad continued to adopt and care for stray dogs.
Dr. Kraemer PRE-VET
He started my pre-vet schooling and received a degree in biology and animal science. During school, he also worked at the university immunology lab as a research assistant.
On his summer vacations, he was in charge of a nature program for kids at the Berkshires (upstate NY) Summer Camp. he taught the young kids how to handle animals and how to care for them, and he provided hands-on science classes. Dr. Kraemer also took them on field trips, explored with them the outdoors, and together we observed nature and the local wildlife in its natural habitat.
The year before starting vet school, he worked at the race track in NYC. Dr. Kraemer also had a short sting at the Jockey Club in Manhattan and spent a few months working with a vet at some of the best horse farms in Virginia.
At the end of that year, he moved to Boston and started veterinary school at Tufts University.
Dr. Kraemer Post-Veterinary School:
The East Coast climate was not my cup of tea, and it did not fit well with my active outdoor lifestyle. So, after graduation, I drove west to Southern Ca.
For the first 10 years, I worked as an independent contractor, mostly taking long night shifts at emergency hospitals.
This allowed him to travel three months each year to destinations all around the world, cycling, tracking, skiing, diving, mountain climbing, etc.
Among others, he visited:
- New Zealand
- and other exotic destinations
The fellow travelers he met on the road, the local natives, and the residents he interacted with in those faraway cultures helped him grow, appreciate diversity, and fine-tune his communicative skillset.
Those humbling experiences helped me improve my ability to listen to you my customers and be sensitive to your needs.
Dr. Kraemer BULLDOG SPECIALTY PRACTICE
I am frequently asked, HOW, WHY, and WHEN did I become interested in the bulldog and French bulldog breeds?
The short answer might surprise you: I did not graduate from a bulldog school, nor did I complete board certification in bulldog medicine and surgery; those programs don’t exist.
SO CAL BULLDOG RESCUE (SCBR)
I knew little about the breed until 15~ years ago. On that day, a nice person walked into a veterinary practice that I managed and asked to speak to the Dr. in charge. His name was Gilbert, though most of you know him as “Skip”. Skip just started a new bulldog rescue he named “So Cal Bulldog Rescue” (SCBR) and was in desperate need of a veterinarian who could provide his rescue shelter and medical care. The hospital owner, who was not a vet, was adamantly against it; he had dealings with rescues in years past that did not turn out well.
I liked Skip, and I appreciated his rescue mission. it was hard to ignore his rescued dog’s need for medical help. So despite the owner’s objections, I decided to take them in.
That good deed turned out to be the best decision of my career and the most rewarding one. Bulldog rescue became a part of my practice. I got to care for some of the most amazing survivors of the worst kind of abuse and neglect, and I had the privilege to take part in their physical and mental healing and see them adopted into a loving, caring new home. I was also fortunate to form long-term relationships with the rescue volunteers, adopting families, and fostering caretakers.
In the following days and weeks, I was examining more bulldogs and French bulldogs than I have had in my entire career.
Dr. Kraemer Bulldog Specialty VET4BULLDOG.COM WEBSITE
I quickly realized that bulldogs were different; they are a medical and surgical challenge with idiosyncratic conditions and breed-specific predispositions.
After a few years of treating and operating bulldogs, he launched a website, an online authoritative guide for bulldog owners and other brachycephalic breeds like Boston Terriers and pugs, in the public domain so he could share my experience with a wider audience.
He founded vet4bulldog.com and started publishing articles, photos, and videos with an emphasis on bulldog prevention, care, and maintenance, which he made the centerpiece of my teachings.
V4B BULLDOG & BULLDOG THERAPEUTICS
He also realized that if a bulldog owner were to master my bully maintenance philosophy, he would need to provide him or her with a toolbox of practical @home solutions that includes preventive, inexpensive, easy-to-implement, and safe therapeutic aids.
Dr. Kraemer began collaborating with specialty manufacturers and started developing my V4B bulldog nonprescription
Over the years, Dr. Kraemer has added and upgraded his bully products, and there are others in development and soon to be released. He recently hired a team of online developers to help upgrade and improve his website.
We will be adding new tools and filters, which we hope will benefit the new bulldog owners as well as the seasoned ones.
We will be launching the new site in the coming months, something I am very proud of and excited about.
Dr. Kraemer BULLDOG SPECIALTY HOSPITAL
Despite the skepticism and naysayers, Dr. Kraemer decided to open a hospital centered on bulldogs and French bulldogs, dedicate it to the breed’s special, and also provide a place for bulldog rescue to shelter, care for, and adopt.
You have proved the skeptic wrong, the need and demand for a bulldog specialty practice are undisputable.

The new focus is on economical, practical bulldog preventive-care measures that are easy to implement at your own home, away from the doctor’s office.
We will be producing a long list of bulldog preventive care how-to videos and many other new practical tools.
We will continue to support the various bulldog rescues, help with funding via the “vet4bulldog” non-for-profit charity and provide consultation.
