    Oh Carol, I am so sorry about your beautiful boy Brutus. I am so terrified of just that. Tyson has been under twice. The first time, we too almost lost him. He went into respiratory attack after coming out of anesthesia. They told us to come say goodbye to him. The event shattered me to pieces, I've never prayed so hard, or had my heart so broken. By the grace of God, and an amazing ER vet, he survived, it took him a week incubated in an oxygen chamber. Since then I vowed to never put him under again unless his life depended on it. Then this past January happened, with him eating the socks. I cannot tell you the fear I had... its just indescribable.... I can't believe how well he pulled through surgery this second time. It was with another vet, who specializes in bulldogs. I can't stress how important that is on this forum - to have a vet who knows the breed. My heart breaks for you, and I know that Brutus is looking down & thanking his lucky stars for the beautiful time he had with you. Bless you for giving him such a wonderful life that he deserved while he was with you.

    Tyson's teeth were starting to get plaque on the bottom towards the gumline. I should have taken pictures, but its hard enough to do anything teeth related in general with him! Anyway, when I saw that I panicked, and thats when I started looking for help. I read & researched, I tried sprays, he hated them and would run from me, I tried gel, he hated it. I didn't want to give him any of those powders, or anything bc honestly I'm not fond of things that aren't natural or good for him. That's when I sought out the antlers that @2BullyMama recommended. Let me just say, she has been so wonderful with me since I joined the forum. Then we all know the benefits of coconut oil, and I read that applying to the gums could help prevent gum disease, so one day I took his toothbrush and tried - he loved it. So now everyday I'll brush his teeth (the best i can) with it, and let him have his antler for a while. Since then I have noticed 80% or more of the plaque already gone. You can actually kinda see the shadow of where it was. He has just small amts left that I am still working on. He's never ever shown any signs of pain, or anything, eats just fine. I just don't want to ever be in the position where he needs to go under for his teeth... bc I would be the one to blame for not taking care of them. Hugs to you Carol - from me & Ty-Ty.

    Thank you, Jessica, for a very touching reply and like you, I'm paralyzed with
    fear to put bullies under unless it's life or death. Brutus teeth were completely
    green (he'd been very neglected), he seemed to be having problems, I feared
    abscesses so had him examined, they found infection & recc'ded cleaning under
    sedation, we did other blood work/labs that looked good but I thought & prayed
    for a couple works before I took him in. I tell people for their Vets to keep their
    bully IN the surgery room when they come to for a brief while WITH intubation
    tube in just in case, that would save lives. I believe it might have saved Brutus
    as they had just put him in the back room, checked on him, he was gone.

    We packed so much love & life in those seven months The next year, my elderly
    cat, CoCo joined him, so they're together again.That's them at the bottom of my page,
    they loved each other so much. My 2nd adopted bully, Cami, fills my heart now.

    Again, thank you


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    You did what any good parent would, the best for your baby. I agree on the staying with them right as they wake, those are the most critical minutes. I look at your picture all the time on other posts, Brutus & Coco are just beautiful. I love that they are together Sweet babies, I swear I love animals more than people.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Walley-Bubba has an antler.
    I got it for him when he was a little pup.
    But it disappeared which was actually a relief.
    The antler was like a rock and I was worried his baby teeth may get damaged.
    So now he's 2-1/2 and the other day, the antler re-appeared under a bookcase when Coit came to clean the carpets.
    WB has been obsessed with it ever since.
    He really goes at it.
    But do NOT attempt to take it away.
    I tried once and he roared at me like a tiger and almost bit me!
    I know he didn't mean it, but I guess some hot laps for WB and me is called for.
    Anyway, his teeth look perfect now.
    Good thing since last time, the vet said he was developing a little plaque.

    Hah, Tyson is the same way, if I get close, he'll give me side-eye. God forbid I reach my hand out, he'll growl too. So they work really well!! He still has some plaque on one tooth, I'm working on it, the others seem to have cleaned up nicely!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Yep, that's why I need the hot laps also
