Bulldogs/Loud snorting Rescued bulldog ; red bumps on chin;


We rescued a 5/6 yr old bully yesterday, Rufus :) I know about the breathing problems that come along with having a bully buy Rufus constantly snorts REALLY loud.  He sounds like a pig! He never closes his mouth to breathe and sometimes it sounds like he is gagging. I didn't know if this is normal becuase of the palette issues in bullies or if it something I should get checked out.  Also, he has bright red bumps on his chin and on the sides of his face.  Not around a wrinkle or anything.  What could this be?  Thanks for your help in getting this sweet boy back to good health!

Hi Ashley,  Thanks so much for taking in Rufus and saving him!
Yes, you are correct that he may have a palate issue and needs to see your local Vet.

Please make an appointment as soon as possible;  The red bumps on his chin may be canine acne:
Please have the Vet take a look at the chin:

We often use Colloidal Silver Salve :

Collodial Silver cream or salve -  I like Silver Shield by Nature's Sunsine...  Silver comes in a gel or some type of a cream --- try to apply this 1 x per day to itchy areas and the bumps you mentioned.  ( the bumps could be herpes virus warts that are very common)  ( no cure for the bumps- they go away in a year or so ...or are removed by the Vet)-  Not a big deal.
Silver products are sold at most Health and Vitamin stores
Just ask the clerk for help.
PLEASE remember I am not a VET - You need to get a diagnosis first.
