    Oh my what an awful scare! BUT certainly happened at the best of times and was an obvious decision maker for you. Miila too had that surgery but she did not have signs of needing it like your Tucker. My gosh, how scary and of course when they are having anything done we are always terrified but he will be ok. Will be waiting to here he good news that he is home and safe soon. Welcome to EBN. Ad you know we do expect pictures here so dont wait too long. Hugs!

    Hi Billy and Tucker! Sorry you and your boy had a bad scare but it's good that Tucker is in getting it fixed now, I looked it up and they made it sound like the surgery was nothing too life threatening, but it's hard not to worry anyway, I know! I hope Tucker is doing great soon

    Hope all goes well. Waston had the same problem when he was 5months with the cough and gagging and he had the same thing done. They sedated him to look and he had a slightly elongated soft palate and his trachea was normal size. He had the laser surgery to the elongated soft palate and he hasn't had a problem since. Good luck to Tucker.

The vet sent him to a surgeon to do the elongated soft palate surgery along with enlarging his nostrils a little so he could breathe better. This seemed to help him a lot, but a few weeks later, he had another "episode". After much discussion, we (after I insisted ) changed his food to a hypoallergenic one. Hasn't had an episode since. We had him tested for allergens, and he tested positive to over 25 different things including beef, peas, grain, etc. which were in his previous food and treats as well. He is 7 now and doing beautifully! Hugs to you until you get your baby's problems figured out - it is a trying time.
    Good stuff, Sandy. As it always seems to be with these guys, it's a "combo platter" of things that can have the biggest impact toward excellent health.

    Keep us posted on Tucker! I am so grateful you were there. Bo choked on kibble once as a pup and it was the most scary seconds of my life, yardin' that outta there.....*shudder*
