6 MONTH OLD MALE ENGLISH BULLDOG WEIGHS 42LBS, IS THIS NORMAL

WEIGHT OF A 6 MONTH OLD BULLDOG MALE

Re: 6 MONTH OLD MALE ENGLISH BULLDOG WEIGHS 42LBS, IS THIS NORMA

I have a bullie that is 13 mo and is 49# he is very standard in size. It all depends on the bloodlines and what the parents are. I also have a 7 yr old that is 84# and not a ounce of fat. Call the breeder and ask question about her lines is best

Yes...Our Bailey....

was adopted on 07/09/06 and he was a year old on March 4th...so he's 1 1/2 years old now...we have the papers on him...he's purebreed and weighs 38lbs...we love him to pieces...Our Bubby was 70-73 and our Ernie is 50-59 LOL So Bay-Bay is hilarious looking...we didn't think he was a bullie for so long b/c he's tiny...but many professionals...bulldog pro's said he's a true and true English bully...here's his pic..Have a pic. of yours???




BTW the "challenge" now is to slim down

Archie is a little tubby so we need to try and take the excess weight off to alleviate additional stress to his respitory system.

All of the Drs advised that if I can get the extra weight off he will live a long happy life.

Yes we are that couple :)

As soon as I found out he had brachycephalic airway syndrome it was addressed. He was 10 months old when the surgery was performed. My regular vet & the emergency vets all suspected that he may have it (had an x-ray of the trachea already) so after his second pneumonia hospitalization I was referred to the best animal specialty hospital in my area.

I was consulted by one of the internal medicine drs and the head surgeon (& co-founder of the hospital) whom both advised that if he does have any surgically correctable traits from the syndrome that they should be addressed ASAP. As it will inhibit his capability to deal with issues such as allergies and colds…And if not addressed early in life he will sustain irreversible damage to his respitory system.

My surgeon has extensive bulldog experience and his concern was that if we wait too long to relieve the stress on his airway that it could lead to serious damage to his larynx (laryngeal paralysis & collapse). From his perspective he has seen way too many bulldogs in that stage (laryngeal paralysis & collapse) and once it advances to that level, it becomes a challenge to treat.

So we had the (laser) surgery done: the palate was resectioned and the saccules removed. My surgeon said that Archie’s palate was large for a bulldog Laser surgery heals faster that the traditional method, I your pups needs this procedure try to find a skilled, bulldog, laser surgeon, lol.

Ever since the surgery he is like a different dog, he runs around like a maniac! It’s depressing to think that his earlier mellowness was due to his inability to breathe properly .

Not sure if you saw my post in the small trachea thread, but if not please check out the following links.

Drea and Archie

Is Archie the bulldog pup who had aspiration pneumonia and was recently diagnosed with brachycephalic airway syndrome? Did you have his soft palate done, and if so, at what age? Did you address his everted saccules?

Overweight dogs

Archie 11 mths 53 lbs although he looks fat. If you are concerned about your pup being overweight the easiest way to tell is by feeling the ribs. If you can feel them easliy the dog is not overweight, if there is a substansial amount of blubber...Your pup is overweight.

Winston is 7 months and weighs 53 lbs.

Yes, that seems fine...

The general rule is to take the dog's weight at 7 months old & add 10 lbs. for what his adult weight would be. Right now he's on track for about 55 lbs. which is perfect.

Sue

weight of bulldog pup

He is an English bulldo and mom only weighs 51lbs. I will get a picture soon. He seems much taller than mom and dad.

This is "within normal limits" of the breed, but...

without knowing more, like the "build type" of the dog and the size of its parents, it would be hard to make a total judgement...certainly would help if we could see a photo of the dog standing.

jayanddeanna's picture

not an expert, but mine was at least that at 6 months

almost 8 months and 55lbs now.
