5 Factors That Contribute to Healthy Growth and Development of the French Bulldog

1. Health Conditions

Over 70% of French bulldogs suffer from one or more health conditions. Many of these issues can impede their health and development. These include:

• Diarrhea

– Upset stomachs are common in French bulldogs. They are susceptible to parasites, Ecoli, and stomach viruses. This will lead to loss of appetite and dehydration.

This loss of nutrients will have an effect on a French bulldog’s full grown health. It is important to keep an eye on their stool. If it is runny, bloody, dark, or has a foul odor, consult your vet.

• Brachycephalic Syndrome

-The  French bulldog is prone to BOAS because of its small squished nose and facial features.

This disease can cause a fully grown French bulldog to have trouble breathing, sleep issues, and shortness of breath. This will cause the pup to have problems with eating and getting around.

This definitely causes the French bulldog’s full grown  development to suffer.

• Hip Dysplasia and the Effects on the French Bulldog Full Grown Development 

– Hip dysplasia is another disorder frequently seen in the French Bulldog. It can greatly affect the French bulldog’s full grown status.

Sadly, it is often genetic. Weight gain is also a factor. It can also be caused by too much strain being put on the dog’s legs as a puppy.

So, while exercise is important, you don’t want to overdo it with your French bulldog.

2. Diet (and the effect on French Bulldog Full Grown Development)

– Since they are prone to weight gain, a healthy diet is critical for a French bulldog’s full grown development. Proper nutrition needs to start as soon as they wean from their mother. 

The French bulldog may have trouble eating because of its unique facial structure. Therefore, giving them smaller bits of food in a shallow bowl will help with a French bulldog’s full grown stature.

In addition, feeding a well-balanced diet of meat, grains, vegetables, and fats will quickly help the French bulldog’s full grown goal.

3. Breeding

– Breeding is a key factor in the French bulldogs’ health prospects. Currently, there is a movement in the French bulldog community to improve breeding techniques.

It is hoped that better research and matching processes can help quell the issues that affect the French bulldog’s full grown development.

Many breeders are taking more care to research the background of dogs before mating. This is done to weed out and eventually rid the breed of common issues such as hip dysplasia.

Most breeders love their pups and only want to see their customers get a well-bred French bulldog’s development as perfect as can be.

4. Regular Health Checkups and Training

Health Checkups and Training for  French Bulldog Full Grown Development 

Regular health checkups are vital for the French bulldog’s full grown development status. At 3 to 4 weeks, puppies should be taken to their first appointment. This initial check will give a good indication as to your French bulldog’s full grown potential.

The vet will check for heart and lung irregularities, and their general condition. Your French bulldog will also get its first round of vaccinations at this appointment.

Your puppy will need to visit the vet every 6 to 8 weeks for the first 5 to 6 months. They will receive vaccines at each visit and the doctor will make sure they are developing properly.

After that, an annual visit is necessary to ensure the health of your bulldog. 

Proper training is also vitally important for the French bulldog. Whether you choose to hire someone or do it yourself. Training for the potty, chewing and learning basic commands. This is all important for a French bulldog’s safety and happiness.

5. Lifestyle

Having a good lifestyle can help your French bulldog reach adulthood and live to its full life expectancy of 10 to 13 years old and beyond. A few factors that promote a great lifestyle for your pet are:


– French bulldogs love giving affection. They love getting it even more. Be mindful to pay attention to your French buddies and show them lots of love.

• Exercise 

– When a French bulldog is full grown, it doesn’t need vigorous exercise. But it does  need a few nice walks each day. 

• Hydration 

– Make sure they have access to fresh water throughout the day. 

• Weather 

– A fully grown French bulldog does best in temperatures from 68 to 72 degrees. Consider purchasing a cooling vest or bandanna for the summer months. Also, for winter months, they should have booties. Their paw pads are very sensitive and can be harmed by ice and salt. 

• Grooming
