Mr. Pete asks:
I hear a lot of people on Facebook talking about "checking" their dogs for anything unusual, for example, fleas, allergies, hot spots, lumps or bumps. I honestly never thought about checking my dogs unless of course I notice something unusual right away. Don't get me wrong, my pets are very well cared for. Your opinion....
Well, I have to admit, since I give these guys extra love and hugs daily, I check them daily. They are very use to me checking their feet, bellies, ears, mouths, body and in between their paw pads. Since French Bulldogs are susceptible to allergies, I am constantly "checking" in order to avoid a flair-up.
My French Bulldog Benny who I lost in 2013 to liver cancer was "checked" daily. Not one sign or symptom...NONE. One day he would not eat, that was unfortunately the only sign I had prior to him being diagnosed.
