Tear Stains, Wrinkles and Baths!


TEAR STAINS

There is a price to pay for the bulldog's pretty face, and that price is tear stains. These dark discolorations that trouble many short-faced breeds can be very difficult to get rid of once they establish a face hold on your dog. To prevent this from happening, wash your bully's face with lukewarm water and a washcloth each day. If your bulldog develops tear stains, mix equal parts hydrogen peroxide and white milk of magnesia with enough corn starch to make a paste. Apply this mixture to the stained areas twice a day. After the stains begin to recede (5-7 days to see results) apply the mixture once a day until your bully's face is showroom new again. Make sure that you do not get into your dog's eyes or you will have more problems that just tear stains!

WRINKLE FREE WRINKLES

A bulldogs face wrinkles need to be cleaned regularly. They are a landfill for excess food, tears, and other discharges. Once a week hold their head gently and clean any dirt or caked tears from the wrinkles with a wet q-tip. Bulldogs are proud creatures who dislike being their faces being tugged on and inspected, so make sure to bring a few snacks to make the whole ordeal an easier process. After you have gently cleaned out your bulldogs wrinkles, spread a thin application of Vaseline on them with a Q-tip to moisturize and protect the area.

FLEA BATHS

If you are giving your bulldog a flea bath, wet her neck thoroughly as soon as you put her in the rub and then apply a ring of flea shampoo to their neck, lathering them well.

WARDROBE

A bulldog's wardrobe ought to include at least one dressing gown, a raincoat and a pretty dress for parties. This isn't necessary to their overall health but it will make them more approachable and bulldog's love getting attention!
