What diseases can occur in Frenchie and Pug Mix.

Most health problems in French Bulldogs as well as Pugs are due to their short snouts. Because of this, they tend to snore and have breathing problems. They can also be prone to heat stroke.

Some of the most common health problems that occur with French Bulldogs are:

  • ALLERGIES - Both French Bulldogs and Pugs are prone to allergies. Allergies can cause a number of symptoms including itching, watery eyes and breathing problems.
  • EYE PROBLEMS - French Bulldogs and Pugs can be prone to a number of eye problems due to their short muzzles. These problems include corneal ulcers, dry eyes, and prolapse of the nictitating membrane (third eyelid).
  • BREATHING PROBLEMS - Because of their short snout, French Bulldogs often have difficulty breathing. They may also snore loudly. These breathing problems can worsen in hot weather or if the dog is over exercised.
  • HEAT STROKE - French Bulldogs are particularly susceptible to heat stroke due to their short snout and lack of ability to pant effectively. Heat stroke can occur even on mild days if the dog is left in a hot car or over exercised.
  • SKIN PROBLEMS - Both French Bulldogs and Pugs are prone to a variety of skin problems due to their short coats and skin folds. These problems can include bacterial and yeast infections, hot spots, and allergies.

Although French Bulldogs and Pugs are generally healthy dogs, they are prone to a number of health problems. Therefore, it is important to also learn about the parents and their diseases.
