    Default surgeries

    Whenever your baby(ies) go under either for some kind of surgery or c-section, do you know approximately how much anesthesia they're given? If you do it, what do you base the amount on?


    We finally heard from the breeder. Her thought was my second, as to why Chubbs has become different. When we got his cherry eyes fixed, he was just over 4 months. The thought is that he reacted badly to the anesthesia, had too much.

    Yea, the breeder said bullies should get half of what is suggested for their weight.

    The anesthesia is a gas called isofluorane, the dosage depends on how long they are under. To get an animal to sleep it requires a higher dosage (5%gas), while maintenance while procedures are going on are less (1-3%). As soon as the procedure is done, the gas is turned off, and the animal will wake up almost instantly. I suppose problems may arise if the dog is intubated vs nose cone, if the % remains high for too long, and it can cause nausea as well. Anxiety never helps either.

    as bulldogs grow up, their personalities change. Just because the rest of the litter doesn't have aggression issues, doesn't mean one wont.

    I stay in touch with 3 owners who have puppies from Blues litter and none of them have his
    problems- health or toy aggression.

    I just don't buy the anesthesia excuse
    Sounds like the breeder is reaching.

    She could be, especially since the change happened about 1 month after the surgery. IDK. There's a veterinary behaviorist about an hour away. We've contacted them.

    Yea, I looked at the invoice to see what the anesthesia was, sevoflurane. Along with a metacam injection and cerenia injection.
