A lot of times they'll have you know, can have ear mites or yeast infections in folded ears. You know ears that come down, especially in this Florida humidity. Sometimes they'll get hygromas on their elbows, sometimes it'll be swollen or just anywhere where there's been a hard surface pressure. So it's just something to be aware of especially with bull breeds and dogs in certain climates. Another thing you can be aware of, especially with bulldogs is their eyes. A lot of times you know they're prone to eye problems. Her eyes don't look too bad but still a little irritated and pink. And of course those are some of the problems.
