There should be no concerns with 4 day prematurity?Why do you ask if I want a bulldog

If your heart is set on this breed make sure as soon as you adopt that you get trupanion pet insurance right off the bat.....because you are going to need it!

Why?

4 days premature is not that big of a deal.....but this breed has LOTS pf problems...you will be at the vet ALL the time...that is why you should get pet insurance right away....

Thank you

If you get pet insurance while your dog is young it will not cost very much...but if you wait it will cost alot.....
