GENERAL WELL-BEING

Hot and Cold

The French bulldog has only a single short coat, which combined with their compromised breathing system, makes it impossible for them to regulate their temperature efficiently. This means the dog may easily become cold and will likely need some extra covering inside during the winter in particularly cold areas. These dogs need warm clothing when out in cold weather. Precautions must be taken when exercising during hot or humid weather, as they are prone to heat stroke. It is also recommended that French Bulldogs who live indoors have access to air conditioning to regulate their temperature. It is imperative that they be protected from temperature extremes at all times, and that they always have access to fresh water and shade.

GET A STYLIST

In terms of grooming, the French Bulldog requires regular nail trimming, brushing, occasional bathing, and ear cleaning.

CRUMMY ALLERGIES

French Bulldogs are also prone to allergies, which can cause eczema on the body. Allergies can be caused by foods, insect bites, and French Bulldogs can also be frequently prone to hay fever and ophthalmic diseases.
