    Default Bristols surgery is today!!

    I am a wreck. I dropped her off at 7am. I had her pre-op appointment yesterday where the surgeon once again went over the nares surgery and and the soft palette resection. She said she would come home with anti nausea drugs and they would monitor whether she would need steroids but no barking, playing, chew toys and only on a leash no free reign activity for two weeks. She is 11 months I know the no playing or chew toys will be torture.
    She will be in what they refer to as doggy icu today and tonight and if all goes well we can pick her up tomorrow afternoon.
    I know so many of you have been through this and I know it will be better for her but today I am a mess.

    UPDATE: Surgeon just called she did fine during surgery. The soft pallet had grown even more since the Intial evaluation and had gotten quite thick so upon resection they did also have to give steroids to reduce the risk of swelling and blocking her airway. But they will have her in icu on watch through tomorrow. They said no visitors today but will call again his evening and then again tomorrow to touch base as to when I can pick her up tomorrow

    Hi, I don't have experience with this type of surgery, only spay and neuter, but know that any time our babies have surgery and have to be put under anesthetic, we worry and stress. I just wanted to say Bristol will be in good hands, and she will be much better after the surgery. I'm sending you love, hugs and prayers that her surgery goes well, and she has a quick recovery. Please keep us posted on how she's doing. Try not to worry, although I know you will. ❤️🙏

    We've had this surgery done on countless rescues and with a good surgeon that is familiar with bully breeds, it's very routine. I'm not suggesting that you not worry...the worrying is something you cannot control so don't even try. Just know that once she's out of surgery she'll be on the mend and with vastly improved breathing you should see a more active and healthier girl. Best of luck to all!

    Happy that the surgery went well and they will be monitering her thru the night. Sounds like all went well and she will be home tomorrow. It's a good thing that they keep her to observe for the first night. Prayers for you and your gal that all continues positive!!

    I'm glad the tough part is behind you. They may recommend soft(canned) food for a few days...if they don't, I do. Try to get the canned version of what she normally eats.
