These pages are intended to provide an overview of possible health conditions your French Bulldog might suffer from.
By no means should this be interpreted to mean that all French Bulldogs suffer from all – or even most – of these conditions.
As with any breed, conscientious French Bulldog breeders utilize available genetic health testing, along with a practical approach to selecting the healthiest possible French Bulldogs to include in their breeding programs.
In my time in French Bulldogs, I’ve had both the misfortune of encountering seriously unhealthy French Bulldogs, as well as having dogs who have lived healthy lives until well into their late teens. Choosing a dog from a good breeder, who has a family history of health and long life, is your best protection against an unhealthy French Bulldog.
