Because of the many health problems in the English Bulldogs, researchers want the dog breed to be restricted. As is already the case in the Netherlands and Norway, this is to prevent a complete ban on breeding.
The English Bulldog has been in the cross chair of animal rights organizations for some time due to a number of health issues affecting the dog breed. Selective breeding of animals is currently banned in Norway and the Netherlands. The Royal College of Veterinary Medicine has conducted a new study on the dog breed and made some significant discoveries. For example, English Bulldogs are 38 times more likely to develop dermatitis due to flaky skin, 27 times more likely to develop cherry eye disease, and 24 times more likely to have lower jaw elongation. Dogs are 20 times more likely to suffocate.
Dogs are also more prone to cysts, dry eyes, scabies, infections, etc. between the toes … which is why the scientists who conducted the study believe that strict rules regarding the breeding of animals should be introduced. “Every dog is free to breathe freely, fully blinks, moves easily, with healthy flat skin, and is capable of being born with equal and good innate health through the ability to breed. The public plays a major role in demanding.
“These findings suggest that the general health of the English Bulldog is much lower than that of other dogs. However, many health problems, such as dermatitis and respiratory problems of the English Bulldog, are directly related to the intensive structure of their body that was selected,” the researchers said. .
“Given the continued popularity of the breed, the regular English Bulldog’s body shape as a sub-animal should redefine very moderate physical characteristics.
