The senior bulldog's mobility may decline rapidly. A portable pet ramp is a safe way to ensure your dog's safe access to vehicles, furniture, and grooming tables.
The nutrional needs of the senior bulldog evolve over time and are different from those of the junior and adult dog. Most quality pet food brands have therefore developed a separate type of food for senior dogs.
More information:
Check whether your favorite pet food has special food for senior dogs or else you can complement your dog's food with a multivitamin/mineral supplement fortified with fatty acids and antioxidants (lutein and lycopene, etc.), such as Lifestage Select Senior Formula.
Includes ingredients for age-related memory dysfunction and Omega-3 fatty acids for anti-inflammatory properties

In function of the severity of the symptons your veterinarian may recommend a prescription NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug), for example Rimadyl. Always consult your veterinarian first as you need a prescription for this kind of medication.

In addition, talk to your veterinarian about using a supplement that combines ingredients for a multi-level approach to your pet's arthritis problem. Such supplements would contain glucosamine and other cartilage-building nutraceuticals, Omega-3 fatty acids for inflammation, and natural ingredients like boswellia and bromelain to help decrease pain. See: daily arthritis supplement for dogs with severe arthritic conditions.

For the same reasons, you may want to give your older bulldog a comfortable, orthopedic bed. Some beds are ideal for dogs with arthritis, who need solid support, but crave pillow softness.
A drug-free arthritis supplement for dogs with severe arthritic conditions may help decrease the discomfort associated with arthritis and joint injuries.

If your dog experiences such severe pain that she:
  • Needs help getting up
  • Limps at all times
  • is unwilling or unable to climb stairs or jump
  • has difficulty squatting to urinate or defecate
