French Bulldog Puppy Health Information

We deal strictly with Pure bred French Bulldogs. Puppies' parents are of a sound health and wonderful loving disposition. We select our dogs not only for conformation but also health and personality.  

Most of our dogs come from Champion Bloodlines.

We only breed very limited amount of litters per year
hence, we have very few available puppies.
To reserve a puppy please contact us in person.
We let the puppies go at about 8-10 weeks of age.

We never kennel our French Bulldogs, they live at our home and share our family life.
Our French Bulldog puppies are raised in a loving, nurturing atmosphere and are very well socialized not only with people but also with our pet bird and two cats. Our French Bulldog Puppies are small, they are around 18-21 lbs. as adults and come in shades of fawn or brindle/white. We follow closely vaccination and worming protocol for our little Frenchies.

Worming Protocol for French Bulldog Puppies

All of our adult dogs are on a monthly dose of Revolution - prescription product for prevention and control of fleas, ticks, mosquitos, ear mites, sarcoptic mange, heart worms, and some of the skin mites. The day your French Bulldog puppy goes home he/she receives a product to prevent a Coccidosis growth for 2 weeks. We worm puppies and their mothers every 2 weeks. First dose at 2 weeks of age is for a round worms we use Pyrantel, then at 4 and 6 weeks we worm with Panacur ( dose a day over a period of 3 days) for round, whip, tape, and hook worms ( this product also protects against Giardia).
We want to protect our Frenchies plus ensure no "bug" problems for future puppy owners.

French Bulldog Puppies Vaccinations  

Our French Bulldog Puppies are current on all age appropriate vaccinations.
We give our Frenchies Distemper/Parvovirus shot at 6 weeks of age.
You need to follow your Vets protocol after you take your puppy home.
Never-less, we strongly recommend Neopar (high titer Parvo vaccine) at 14 weeks and separate only Distemper shot at 16 weeks to protect puppies for the rest of their first year of life against those brutal diseases. Parvo virus is still very active in the USA - be careful, it is very contagious and deadly to young puppies under 8 months of age!

Demodectic mange - mites

French Bulldogs are also prone to Demodectic mite overgrowth, it is an autoimmune condition that can be treated with low dose of Ivermectin - symptoms include: itching, loss of hair, red inflammed skin etc. Check with your Vet, scraping of the skin should be done and if it is positive for Demodex Ivermectin prescribed. Expect for the dog to be on Ivermectin over a period of 2-3 months. During the course of treatment I strongly recommend switching to "no grain" and limited ingredience food- most likely stress is a culprit: change in hormones (hence spay/neuter is a good idea), food or overload of vaccines could cause this condition. It is not contagious and does not transfers to humans. Demodex mites are part of dogs natural skin habitat, dogs immune system should keep them in check but in some cases stress triggers an attack.

Sarcoptic mange

Sarcoptic mange is also a type of mite (Canine scabies) but the infection is contagious and can be caught from another dog. It is easily preventable by using monthly "Revolution" product (I've mentioned on the "Puppy Care" page under "Flees") which controls this mange.  

Walking dandruff - cheyletiellosis

Very contagious mite infection, can be caught by direct contact treated with repeated baths once a week in "Lyme Dip" also "Frontline" spay works great. At the beggining looks like a dandruff on the dogs back closer to the tail and hind legs, after while it spreads all over and causes inflammation, hair loss etc.
