    Question Worried about anesthesia administered during neuter

    Hi everyone. I have a 6 month old puppy and we are thinking of getting him neutered this month. However, english bulldogs are prone to issues with anesthesia . I worry that something could happen to him. How has everyone's experience been with anesthesia ? Have you gone to a vet that has specifically neutered bulldogs before? Love him to death and don't want anything to happen to him.

    Thanks,
    Jen

    You need to have a vet who knows about English Bulldogs and the correct anaesthesia for them. Neutering is not the danger-the vet needs to be experienced with Bullies.

    One of the safe anesthesias to use is Isoflurane.

    @Blueberrys Mom is right, just make sure that the vet will be using Isoflurane as the anesthesia and everything will be ok. to EBN!

    agree above!! I actually told my vet before hand I wanted that and he told me he was already planning on it. So that was a good sign for me. And she did great! I havnt experienced anything except a little runny poop but that may be her antibiotics she is taking

    My 3 Bulldogs are all neutered/spayed, and it went well Just make sure you go to an experienced vet, possible also one that has the equipment to act IF something would to go wrong, which I'm sure it wont Like mentioned before the anesthetic is important, ask what kind they use and read up on it. Don't let your baby eat or drink anything before the operation. I take away food at around 6pm and water at 9pm the night before to make sure they have time to get it out of their tummies. I've heard some vets say a few hours are enough but I strongly disagree. Ask your vet about that to make sure. I always book mine in for mornings so they don't have to wait a whole day without eating or drinking. I also stress A LOT, I drive my husband crazy and probably the vet too Hugs to you

    Bocephus came through his neuter at 6 months without any issues at all. He did have a little bit of gas and some runny poops but that was it.
    He's going in for another surgery tomorrow (it couldn't be done with his neuter) so hopefully it will go just as well

    Barkley got neutered and had his palate repaired in February and then less than a month later we found out he had bladder stones and had to have surgery again to remove them! Everything went great both times, there were no issues at all during or after!
