Health - Breathing


Frenchies are a brachycephalic breed – a fancy word which basically means dogs with short muzzles, flat faces and condensed breathing systems.

These short flat faces are what is responsible for the ever so adorable snorting and snuffling sounds that your Frenchie makes – but it’s also a serious matter for your dog’s health.

Being a Brachyephalic Frenchie creates a need to be aware that putting your dog under anesthesia is a serious matter .  Anesthetic should only ever be administered for the most critical of procedures – no ‘putting under’ for simple nail clippings, please. Be sure to discuss the options of how your dog is put under for surgical situations with your Vet.  Frenchies can die from inappropriate choices. 

  Do not use Ace as a anesthetic..
