Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies
Spaying bulldogs and French bulldog puppies is one of the most routinely preformed elective surgeries in female bulldogs. When inquiring about spaying many bulldog owners want to know when is the ideal time? And what are the health benefits of spaying a female bulldog. Regardless of the procedure, most English bulldog and French bulldog owners are concerned about the anesthetic risks. Many of the alleged risks associated with spaying a bulldog and French bulldog puppies are myths; obesity, weight gain and inactivity is more about life style, improper feedings, lack of physical activity and limited exercise. Other myths allege adverse effects on your bulldog personality, temperament, aptitude, and disposition. There is no medical or clinical research that support those claims. The best way to keep your bulldogs sound, sharp and fit is to socialize them, allow plenty of playtime, offer stimulus by challenging play, and it goes with out saying provide healthy dose of love and care. Those are the true critical and essential needs for ultimate physique and intelligence.
Dr. Kraemer has a long lasting collaborative relationship with bulldog rescue and many of the rescued bulldogs are sheltered and treated by him. All of the rescue bulldogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We recommend that you contact rescue or Dr. Kraemer before you buy a new bulldog puppy. Every second Saturday of the month, bulldog rescue hosts an adoption event at Dr. Kreaemer’s Vet4HealthyPet Advanced Medical Care. The adoption fee is a fraction of the cost of buying a bulldog puppy from a breeder and you will also be providing a home for a bulldog in need!

Dr. Kraemer’s V4B Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies Tips & Warnings:
Dr. Kraemer’s Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies Tip #1: Even though spaying your bulldog early on in life can prevent certain diseases, there are other contributing factors such as environmental factors, nutrition, and genetics that can also lead to adverse conditions.
Dr. Kraemer’s Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies Tip #2: Spaying your bulldog puppy can prevent life threatening cancers such as ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, and bulldog breast tumors (bulldog mammary gland tumors).
Dr. Kraemer’s Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies Tip #3: At Vet4HealthyPet Advance Medical Care 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 pet owners schedule an elective surgery like a spay or a neuter, we offer a procedure in which we harvest their pets stem cells (stored in adipose tissue near the spay surgical site), and then ship them to be cryobanked as an “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 days’ notice to retrieve cryobanked stem cell treatments. Fortunately, most pet insurance companies recognize the benefits of stem cell therapy and will cover the procedure.
Dr. Kraemer’s Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies Tip #4: Early spaying will prevent prolapse uterus, cystic ovaries, transmissible venereal diseases, unwanted pregnancies and the associated risk and cost of bulldog labor and delivery.
Dr. Kraemer’s Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies Warning #1: You should search for a hospital that is familiar with the breed specific anesthetic requirements while also offering a type of anesthesia called 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, protocols and monitoring.
Dr. Kraemer’s Spaying Bulldogs and French Bulldog Puppies Warning #2: If your bulldog puppy is exhibiting any of the brachycephalic syndrome complications such as elongated soft palate, everted saccules or stenotic nares, these airway issues should be repaired prior or during the spay procedure.
