Women Sleep Better Next to Their Dogs- Here is why!


For dog owners, there’s definitely not a better feeling than sharing a bed with their lovely pooch. We are sure they all love to curl up and chill all day with their four-legged friends. However, have you heard for the statement that women sleep better next to dogs that next to their human partners?

No matter how silly it sounds, believe us, it’s true! According to the researches that collected data from 962 adult women living in the USA, 31% share their beds with cats, 55% with dogs, and 57 % with their partners. The results have shown that women don’t get a quality sleeping next to their cats. Since cats like to pretty much spend their time wandering through the house at night, cat owners spend the greater part of the night in listening to what their pets are doing.  And, we don’t even need to mention the time and sounding of ‘lovely and romantic February’.

What about humans and dogs?

When we talk about dogs and human partners, studies have shown that dogs bring more security to women while sleeping. It’s because they tend to protect their owners every time they ‘smell’ the danger in the air. Another cute fact is that women like to snuggle and unlike cat owners, dog owners go to bed earlier and wake up earlier as well. Therefore, it’s another win when we talk about resting.

In case you are still not sure whether to choose a dog for a pet, the following fact will definitely blow your mind.

It’s true that cats sleep a lot, however, dogs do have better timing. It means that our lovely four-legged friends know when is the time for sleeping, eating, going for a walk, and your daily routine. On the other hand, when a cat already had enough sleep during a day, there’s no force that will make it sleep peacefully during the night.

What makes French bulldogs good sleeping partners?

If you ask every Frenchie owner if their batpig is good sleeping partner, we bet most of them will say –yes. On the other hand, there only one thing that will make you think twice about owning this wonderful breed. Since French bulldogs have brachycephalic skulls, they snore! Sometimes, this feature can actually be pretty mitigatory in case both a Frenchie mom and little gremlin snore. They two will definitely produce a ‘lovely sounding symphony’.

Let’s talk about good things as well. Since Frenchies easily adapt to any kind of environment and routines, you can be pretty sure he’ll actually like the idea of sleeping next to you. Frenchies very easily learn the routines of their owners, so this can be one extenuating circumstance.

For the end, we must be honest! There’s no better feet warmer during cozy nights than your furry friend. Sometimes, we simply need an extra layer to keep us warm. All in all, the conclusion is that from now on, males definitely need to find their beds in dog houses.

Women have the 6th sense

Whether we talk about a dog’s sadness and anxiety or finding some strange-looking spots on the skin, a mom is going to discover everything!


Frenchie moms are gentle

Women Frenchie parents act more gentle than men. They are capable to spend hours and hours sitting on the couch with their Frenchies like they are hugging a Teddy-Bear! Luckily, Frenchies like attention so it doesn’t present a problem to them at all.


Frenchie moms have a sense for fashion

Women Frenchie parents are better chefs

A Frenchie’s wish is her command! Women Frenchie parent will always prepare high-quality meals for her batpig because she knows how important it is. Whether her pooch wants to eat meat, raw or cooked, she’ll know how to prepare it!

Women care about Frenchie essentials

For the end, we’ve prepared a totally crazy fact!

According to a recent study by researchers at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, women tend to sleep better next to dogs than they do next to members of their own species. 

Sorry men, but from now on, you can find your beds in your dog’s house!



Why Is My French Bulldog Losing Hair?


Do you love to hear that your French bulldog’s coat looks healthy, smooth, and shiny? Well, we are sure that every dog owner feels proud to hear that his dog looks healthy and nurtured. Unfortunately, sometimes we can encounter certain problems and one of them is French bulldog hair loss. French bulldog hair loss can be a desperate moment both for the owner and his pet. That’s why it’s important to discover the trigger and help your pet on time.

What are the common causes of French bulldog hair loss?

A French bulldog hair loss issue can be caused by many factors. During the shedding season, your dog will lose more hair than usual. However, if the hair loss becomes excessive, and your Frenchie develops hairless spots on his body, it’s a clear sign that you need to react quickly.

One of the first things every owner should know to recognize is the pet’s strange behavior. Does your dog excessively scratch his skin to blood? Does he seem nervous and incapable to settle down? Besides these two symptoms, your Frenchie’s hair loss can be followed by numerous other symptoms as well.

The main reasons for this unpleasant condition could be allergies, poor nutrition, mange, dermatitis, parasite Alopecia, genetics, and hormonal imbalance.

Allergies in French bulldogs are often caused by different environmental allergens such as seasonal pollen, different house cleaning products, laundry detergent, and dust. Your Frenchie can also be allergic to ingredients in his diet such as corn, soy, by-products, and artificial colors and flavors. That’s why every dog owner should carefully choose a diet for his Frenchie and read the labels on dry kibble or canned dog food.

Dermatitis in French bulldogs is closely connected to allergic reactions caused by environmental elements. Your pet’s skin can become itchy, red, and develop watery blisters that can easily become infected if not treated on time. We don’t recommend your home treatment because this condition can be an introduction to severe issues and permanent hair loss is one of them.

  • Poor nutrition

One of the reasons for a French bulldog hair loss issue can be poor nutrition. During the adolescence period, your Frenchie requires to eat healthy meat proteins that will help him to build muscle mass. So, in case you’re not sure what food brand to choose for your French bulldog, we suggest you choose the one that contains a recommended balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and omega oils for your dog’s age.

  • Mange

One of the first signs that will show you if your French bulldog’s skin became affected with mange is a skin covered with sores or thickened and dark patches. It is a disease caused by mites that burrow deep into the coat and cause severe pains and itchiness. If you leave it untreated, your Frenchie can even develop wounds and infections that will be difficult to heal.

There are two major types of mites that affect dogs:

  • Sarcoptic mange
  • Demodectic mange

Both scabies and Demodex require topical treatments that will control the mites and heal the skin. Bathing with medicated shampoos is important, as well as using topical applications that will help you kill the mites. In some cases, Frenchies may also need oral therapy as well.

  • Genetics

We all know that Frenchies belong to the group of the most expensive dog breeds. They are difficult to breed not only because they are incapable to mate traditionally, but also because the breeder should select quality bloodline dogs for breeding. Buying Frenchie puppies for a small amount of money is not advisable because it’s often a sign that you’re buying a pet with a tendency to suffer from different health issues.

  • Acral lick dermatitis

Acral lick dermatitis is triggered by a psychical disorder. Since French bulldogs are on a higher tendency to suffer from anxiety and separation anxiety, you should carefully monitor your dog’s behavior in certain situations. Does the condition get worse every time your dog spends time alone? If the answer is yes, then you can be quite sure that the excessive licking is caused by a mental factor.

  • Hormonal imbalance

Improper work of sebaceous glands can cause different skin issues such as seborrhea and dandruff. Since these conditions can be very itchy, a dog can develop cuts that can quickly become infected.

How to prevent French bulldog hair loss?

  • Include supplements

To maintain a healthy and shiny coat in your Frenchie, you can include different supplements into your dog’s diet. Besides, feeding your pet with food rich in antioxidants such as blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, can make your Frenchie’s skin elastic, hydrated, and smooth.

Feeding your dog with fish will also do a lot for his skin and coat. Fish represent the best source of Omega oils that are known as one of the best ingredients for maintaining a healthy coat.

Choosing the right shampoo for a French bulldog plays an important role in preventing different skin issues too. Our advice is to choose a dog shampoo free of parabens that contains natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera and Olive oil. Both Aloe Vera and Olive oil regenerate the skin and make it look fresh and healthy.

  • Regularly brush your dog’s coat

The dog’s skin produces oils that serve to keep its skin moisturized and protected. However, brushing is required to spread the oils through the dog’s coat. If you’re not sure what type of grooming brush to use for your Frenchie, we recommend you buy the following Grooming glove. It is practical to use, and the silicone pins are soft, so they won’t hurt the dog’s skin. Besides, the glove will help you reach all hidden places on your dog’s body.

 

 

 

 

 



Why Does Your French Bulldog Have Red Eyes?


If you’ve noticed that your Frenchie has red eyes, there could be several reasons for such occurrence. French bulldogs might have gorgeous, unique, and protruding eyes, but these features also make them prone to eye infections, allergies, and different conditions. That’s why we have to pay attention

What causes French bulldog red eyes?

Eye allergy in French bulldogs

One of the most common reasons for your French bulldog’s eye redness are environmental allergens. Dust and seasonal pollen can irritate not only Frenchie’s nose but also its big and round eyes. However, have you ever wondered why is that so?

As we all know, these little batpigs have flat muzzles. So, when they sniff the ground and explore the great outdoors, their eyes are too close to the allergens and can easily develop an allergic reaction. In case of an allergy, besides eye redness, your furry friend will also have watery eyes that can progress into a condition called conjunctivitis.

Eye conjunctivitis requires immediate treatment because it’s very uncomfortable and can even lead to total blindness. The most common therapy vets prescribe for treating conjunctivitis are antibiotic eye drops. Depending on the severity of the condition, the treatment may last from one to three weeks.

french bulldog red eyes

Dry eye syndrome in French bulldogs

Dry eye syndrome represents the restricted ability’s to produce tears. This condition is immune-mediated and extremely painful, so it requires immediate treatment. If your French bulldog has chronic red eyes, frequently blinks, has sticky eye discharge, and dull-looking eyes with a lack of shine, then he probably suffers from dry eye syndrome.

To determine the amount of tears, your vet will perform the ‘Schirmer Tear Test’. It’s a painless procedure that includes placing a tiny strip of paper between your dog’s eyelid and eye. Frenchies who suffer from dry eye syndrome will need to daily use false teardrops and Ciclosporin eye drops. Ciclosporin calms the dog’s immune reaction and prevents destroying tear glands.

In case of a severe level of dry eye syndrome, your vet may suggest an eye operation. By redirecting a tube that carries the saliva, it will help in keeping the eye moist.

Corneal ulcers in Frenchies

Corneal ulcers could be another reason for your French bulldog red eyes. They occur due to traumas, chemical burns, and rarely due to bacterial infection. We can describe them as deep erosions through the entire epithelium and into the stroma. The Frenchie’s eye affected by corneal ulcer appears to be cloudy and painful. The treatment will include eye drops prescribed by the vet and protecting the eye by wearing eye patches.

Glaucoma in French bulldogs

Glaucoma primary and secondary can also be the reasons for French bulldog red eyes. It’s a condition caused by inadequate drainage of aqueous fluid. When too much or too little fluid is drained, the intraocular pressure increases and makes damage to the optic nerve and retina. Since glaucoma is very painful to dogs, both primary and secondary glaucoma requires surgery. Medications are given to Frenchie with lower eye pressure in order to get back to normal as fast as possible. Besides visible redness in your Frenchie’s eyes, this condition is followed by: frequent squinting, bulging swollen eye, tearing, rubbing eyes onto the floor, pupils look different in size.

Uveitis in French bulldogs

French bulldog intense eye redness can often be caused by uveitis- a condition which true causes are never discovered. It is followed by severe pains, redness of the eye, cloudiness, and small pupils. Since at first glance looks like glaucoma, to determine the exact issue, a vet will have to measure the intraocular pressure. When a Frenchie suffers from uveitis, he/she has low intraocular pressure, while with glaucoma happens the opposite. The most common causes of uveitis are high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, trauma to the eye, eye tumors, and different infections.

When properly treated, uveitis can be healed in 2 or 3 days, however, if the eye is cloudy, it may take up to 7 days to clear up.

Cherry eye in French bulldogs

Cherry eye in dogs occurs when the third eyelid prolapses and forms a red tissue that looks like a cherry. It more often occurs in young puppies and can occur in both eyes. Even though this condition looks quite scary to dog owners, it’s usually not painful but it can disrupt normal tear production. The good news is that this condition can be treated by massaging the eye. In case of unsuccessful theraphy, the last option represents the surgery of removing the tear gland and topical treatment to escape infections.

How do you take care of a French bulldog’s eyes?

Just like any other body part, your Frenchie’s eyes also need to get a regular cleaning. Since these batpigs have protruding eyes, they’re more prone to developing ugly-looking tear stains.

Depending on your furry friend’s color of fur, the tear stains can be more or less visible. However, it doesn’t mean that your dog doesn’t them at all. Tear stains look like visible red marks around the dog’s eyes and they occur in pooches who produce more tears and due to a naturally occurring molecule found in tears called porphyrin.

To keep the area around your Frenchie’s eyes clean, we recommend you use the following Frenchie World Eye Tear Stain Remover. Besides it effectively cleans the reddish marks around the dog’s eyes, it also provides anti-inflammatory, bactericidal, and cleansing action to prevent bacterial infections. We recommend you use it two or three times a week by pouring a small amount of solution on a cotton swab and cleaning the area around the dog’s eyes.

Improving a dog’s hygiene can also be helpful when dealing with bumps. If your dog’s skin overproduces sebum, then you should ask your vet to prescribe you special treatment for your pet.

Sometimes, the lack of hygiene can cause bumps, so make sure you bathe your dog every two or three weeks.
