Lupus Erythematosus in Bulldog

I am on my second bully now, a wonderful ever so chewhappy 6 mo wonder. The first one (love of my life for 9 years) I had to put down since he was losing his battle with lupus. My question to you is, have you ever heard of a bully getting lupus?

I’m sorry to hear about your Bulldog but glad to hear you have a new Bulldog puppy!

I have not heard of a Bulldog getting lupus although dogs can get autoimmune disorders
which often go undiagnosed.  Collies are the dogs most affected by Lupus Erythematosus.
It is not a very common disease in dogs.

Here is a link to more information on Lupus Erythematosus in dogs including
symptoms and treatment and dogs affected:

Bulldogs are well known for having compromised immune systems
due to the in breeding they have suffered over the decades.  The
most common manifestations of this is skin allergies.
