French bulldog skin issues: solve them with a dog food
French bulldog health and habits
French bulldogs boast a very nice morphology and a great character. They have a slow reaction to external stimulants and are very patient, lazy and tolerant. Their peaceful character is perfect for family life, even with very young children. They’re also noisy, in fact the particular conformation of their snout does not allow for good breathing and this leads to thermoregulatory problems in hot periods and sounds similar to snoring, especially when resting. Consequently, French bulldogs risk heat stroke in summer, it’s thus essential not to feed them before walks and to keep them indoors during the hottest hours.
French bulldog skin issues
Being characterized by numerous folds on the face and body, the French bulldog is naturally prone to skin issues, such as the formation of dermatitis of the facial folds, interdigital dermatitis and dermatitis in the armpits, generating significant itching and redness and stimulating scratching, biting or rubbing, thus further worsening the situation.
Dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin and a process by which the body reacts and tries to restore the physiological state to normal. Dermatitis in dogs can occur with redness, itching, crusts, hot spot, sores, seborrhea and inflammation, resulting in a risk of infection.
It is the inflammatory state which is the ideal terrain for the development of infections: in practice, the germs (normally already present) take advantage of the inflammation and reproduce in an abnormal way, taking the upper hand. The infection is thus the effect and not the cause of the problem.
But is this normal?
French bulldog allergies: the real causes
Beyond those forms which have always existed, currently the most frequent cause of French bulldog skin issues is an intolerance to one or more foods. Food intolerances, a constantly increasing pathology within both veterinary and human medicine, cause the organism to respond through inflammation phenomena at the most sensitive part (the target organ).
The inflammation of the target organ is often the only visible manifestation of a food intolerance issue. If this intolerance towards one or more foods targets the skin as its organ, the only valid solution to treat the consequent dermatitis and prevent relapses is changing the food. In fact, even a single intake of a food that the body recognizes as toxic will cause an inflammatory process lasting a few days (on average four or five).
If this food continues to be part of nutrition, the inflammatory process will inevitably become chronic.
