    I hope all goes well. Is this the same vet that you got him from that will be operating?

    I've often wondered (lately) if Bea needs to have hers trimmed up. She seems easily winded...and she most always snores. How did you know that it was apnea as opposed to just a snorey dog?

    Hoping for an easy surgery and quick recovery for sweet Chelios - if it's even needed at all.

    Yes, Lari... Dr. Rossi will be doing the work. He also referred us to another surgeon at a different practice to get a second opinion. Dr. Cabell she did Nitschke procedure - but we are very comfortable and trust Joe entirely.

    Vicki... he totally stops breathing several times a night. I have him sleeping on my arm so I can feel him stop... I wake up, blow air in his face and he will start breathing again. Nitschke did the same thing until his palate and nares were fixed.... snoring continues, not as loud, but the apnea stops.

    Oh Jeez. Oh man. Panic-city. Wow. How in the world did you discover this? I bet you haven't had a decent night's sleep since before Nitschke went to the bridge.... Awwww. I wish I could come and help you... do something. I'll be watching this thread for updates and the good news that little Chelios' apnea has been completely repaired.

    I noticed it when he naps next to me on the weekends... like now I am on the couch and he is on the right side and Banks on the left side of me. Banks does not snore, rarely does she... Cheli at
    22 lbs sounds like a 20ft chain saw. One day shortly after he was home with us I noticed he stopped snoring/breathing.. I picked up his head and his eyes were open a tiny bit, and his body started to shake... blew air in his face and he took a deep breath and went back to snoring. With Cheli it seems like old hat, scary still, but when it happened with Nitschke and I did not know any better... panic was a constant until he had the procedure. and, yes, sleep for me over the past year and a 1/2 is very light is I am ALWAYS tired. as much as I look forward to him being better and me sleeping through the night - I hate having to put him under, but I do trust our vet, he really is a true animal lover and has amazing passion for his work.

    Thinking of you and Chelios. Miss T had her palatte done and it made the world of difference. Buster will have to get his nares done soon. They are tiny. I know it is always distressing to have to do surgery with our babies and my thoughts and prayers are with you.
