    Default Getting spayed tomorrow

    Lola is 24 weeks old today and she gets spayed tomorrow. Wish her luck!

    Her vet also recommended widening her nasal passages while she is already under. However, she has no breathing problems at this time so I'm leery of having a procedure done that she may not really need. I realize that her nasal openings could get worse as she continues to grow, but there is also the possibility that they won't get any worse or could get better. Again, she doesn't have any breathing issues at this time that I'm aware of. Also, my vet does have a few other bulldog patients but she is by no means a bulldog expert (in my opinion) and there aren't any in my area or I would be taking her there.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

My Frenchie, at 8 mths, our vet told us, he will need nares and palete done, but I will not touch until he is two and done growing. Our boy Nitschke, our vet said the same thing... he will need something done, but wait till he is two and re-evaluate.

    Cheli (Frenchie) had nares widened and palate reduction... he actually needed the palate done a second time due to scare tissue formed in his airway.

    Nitschke (Bulldog) had nares, succules (spelling), palate and one other thing done at age 2.5, but all was identified at 6 mths

    The vet said that one of her nares looks like it may be a problem when she gets older. She (the vet) suggested doing them now while she is already under anesthesia. I would just rather wait and see if she really has a problem than having a surgical procedure done on her that may not be necessary. Not to mention the additional $200-$350 just to do the nares on top of the $430 I will already be paying for the spay.

    If she's having no breathing issues now I would get a second opinion before I did anything. I agree that if it isn't necessary there's no reason to have it done, I hope everything goes well with Ms. McWigglebutt's spay tomorrow.

    If it were me... I'd wait too... But do what you are comfortable with
