Zen and Bulldog Maintenance and Care is about becoming a bulldog puppy owner and living the bulldog ownership Zen like experience. Zen4Bulldogs is a universal addictive joy that brings owners together as a family. If you have ever taken part in any bulldog social event or reviewed the Facebook or profile of any bulldog owner and their listed friends (most of which are other proud bulldog lovers), you instantly recognize how infectious (“viral”) bulldog ownership is.
Bulldog ownership addiction is not only a big undertaking, but also a lifelong commitment that can become costly to your bulldog and french bulldog puppy and to you. By following the two part “bully for dummies” step by step chapters, “Zen and the Art of Bulldog Maintenance”and “Bully 10 Commandments”, you should be able to prevent and/or reduce what might otherwise turn into a never-ending monetary burden on you, and long lasting pain and suffering for your bulldog. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy the unmatched sublime bully ZEN experience (“Zen4Bulldogs”). Bully-Zen and Bulldog -Maintenance are one and the same, interwoven like an Escher painting ( i.e. “sky and water 1″), like SpaceTime continuum, they complete and complement each other.
Many of the common bulldog problems, such as, bulldog eye & eyelid problems, arthritis in bulldogs and french bulldogs,bulldog otitis and bulldog ear canal disease , and obesity to name a few start very early on and will likely worsen if left unattended. Advanced chronic state of those bulldog medical conditions will be difficult to treat, expensive and often needlessly painful to your bulldog puppy.

Many of the medical problems bulldogs face are lifelong problems with no easy fix. By committing to this Bully Maintenance Program you have the opportunity to keep potential medical problems not only under control, but also manageable and affordable.

Get a pet insurance for your bulldog or French bulldog puppy as early as possible so they cant be declined for any future medical problems. Choose a pet insurance that is not partial and discrimentory to English bulldogs and French bulldog puppies. An experience bulldog veterinarian will recognized the breed related medical problems such as bulldog eyes & eyelid problems,bulldog orthopedics conditions, bulldog airway disease, and bulldog ear disease to name a few, within the first year of your bulldog puppy life, thus an insurance taken when the puppy is only few weeks old is likely to pay for itself many times over
Supplements and products that are sold over the counter (OTC) are not FDA regulated. Thus, the claims found on product labels as well as the purity of the products themselves are unknown factors. In addition, the bioavailability (i.e. a fraction of the ingested dose that is absorbed) even when advertised for pets, should be in question. Lastly, one would hope that the production line, raw material and packaging are inspected and protected from dangerous contaminates (“Do No Harm” rule). Check the label for safety data and the dosage of intended use, and check for a manufacturer’s certificate assuring you their facility is FDA approved. Verify that they are members of the National Animal Supplement Council (www.nasc.cc) and that the product was made under strict cGMP standard (current good manufacturing practice) .The products selected for member of this site are the most essential “Bully Maintenance” products: the “V4B Private Label Line”. All the V4B labeled products are custom made for your bully, and are packaged with a ”take home” colored, printable handout containing detailed instructions. Most importantly, as with any paid services on this site, ”10% of each purchase must go to our Not4Profit Bulldog-Rescue”.
Veterinarians are among the most qualified health care professionals, I have only respect and admiration to my colleagues in the veterinary field, yet the truth is that very few treat bulldogs on a daily basis. Medically and surgically, bulldogs are different than most other breeds. Over the course of the first 10 years of my career, I probably treated only a dozen bulldogs a year. Now, I treat a dozen a day, my staff and I went through a decade of a ”bulldog learning curve” . You can often find a list of local “bulldog veterinarians” published by your regional bulldog rescue group, go and visit their practice and choose one that fit your personal liking and needs.
More is not always better. There is potential harm in self-diagnosis and self-treatment. Doing nothing is still better than possibly doing something harmful. It’s always best to ask your veterinarian for advice when you’re not sure about something. On the other hand, becoming an educated owner is not the same as “playing doctor”. In order to help our bulldog community you can find a list of the most common bulldog problems, top to bottom, listed under my Bulldog Maintenance Program on this site. Each article posted on this site concludes with a “Tips & Warnings” list with emphasis on our “Do No Harm” rule.
