Dr. Kraemer’s V4B Spaying Bulldogs French Bulldog Puppies TIPS & WARNINGS:

Spaying Bulldogs French Bulldog Puppies PYOMETRA

Spaying Bulldogs French Bulldog Puppies can prevent PYOMETRA

OTHER FACTORS Tip #1: Even though spaying your bulldog early in life can prevent certain diseases, there are many other contributing factors such as environmental factors, nutrition, and genetics.

STEM CELL Tip #2: We offer a low-cost, minimally invasive, and minimal risk stem cell therapy cryobanking program that is performed at the same time as your bulldog’s spay surgery. When our bulldog owner schedules an elective surgery like a spay or neuter, they can also request that we harvest their pet’s stem cells (stored in adipose tissue near the spay surgical site), and then ship them to be cryobanked as “insurance” for future medical emergencies and illnesses. These stem cells are anti-inflammatory, healing repair cells that can help treat a wide range of illnesses and medical conditions. For the life of your pet, you will be able to call at a day’s notice and ask to retrieve and ship your bulldog cryobanked stem cell treatments. Fortunately, most pet insurance companies recognize the benefits of stem cell therapy, and thus, cover the procedure.

ANESTHESIA Warning #1: You should search for a hospital that is familiar with the breed-specific anesthetic requirements and Sevoflurane. You should also ensure that the hospital you choose employs a medical team that is versed with breed-specific induction, as well as breed-specific recovery, safety protocols, and monitoring.

BCS Warning #2: If your bulldog puppy is exhibiting any of the brachycephalic syndrome complications, such as elongated soft palate, everted saccules, or stenotic nares, they should be repaired prior to, or during, the spay procedure.

Early-age spay/neuter procedures have been endorsed by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV), the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA).
