Q. My 7 year old English bulldog has suddenly developed what appears to be fluid on his neck, stomach and ankles. He also has pus in his eyes .

A. This fluid may be due to a bacterial/yeast infection of the skin. Bulldogs with wrinkles commonly develop skin infections and the wrinkles need to be cleaned often to prevent the infections. The pus in his eyes could be caused by numerous occular issues including an infection, corneal damage, dry eye, etc. Please have him seen by a veterinarian.

A. This sounds like edema and an infection, likely related. It sounds like he needs a veterinarian for a complete exam as this could be the results of a septic infection.
