General Health


The are genetically disposed to issues with their eyes and respiratory systems. Since they are prone to those cute little bulging eyes, they can also pop out of their skull, or get damaged from playing. Also, since both breeds are brachycephalic (pug-nosed, short muzzle, round head) they tend to snore a lot and have breathing problems. It is important to keep them cool in hot weather. Their limited breathing also hinders their abilities to pant and cool themselves off. They can also suffer from sleep apnea.

Some are known to have skin allergies to wild plants such as clover.

I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
