    @ChanelnBrutus

    Hi Rosemarie... I am so sorry to hear all this is going on with your baby... and bully positive thoughts to you and him. He is a handsome bully!

    I live in PA just outside of Philly. I actually have been to the Animal Hospital in Tinton Falls many years ago with my sweet boy, as we were referred there by our vet to ensure Nitschke did not have a neurological issue. They were very nice and caring, BUT I believe they are considered a 'specialist' center which causes the higher prices, not to mention the area/zip code plays in the costs. I am happy to read you are traveling for a second opinion. Where in PA are you heading tomorrow? I can even call my vet get his opinion and see what his thoughts are, if you'd like?

    I can also tell you tramadol is very safe as others have said. My girl, Banks is on it every day for her back and there are no side effects or strange behavior just a pain killer.


    This is a very supportive and informed group of people...we are here if you needs us. Please keep us up to date and be safe in your travels tomorrow.

    @2BullyMama Thanks so much! The place we are going to is in Levittown , PA ..... They have bulldog specialist there! Yes Tinton falls is very expsensive but I thought it was worth it because I was getting the best care! I am so happy I found this site b/c I get good advice and have other people to talk to about it and vent my frustration! thanks again! YEs if you wouldnt mind checking with your vet I would def appreciate it! I called different vets but noone would really give me info unless they say him! I said all I need to know if its normal to relapse in 1 week without it even healing! But no answers thanks again for the time ur willing to tak to help us out!

    Hey all! Things were going so well yesterday and then I woke up at about 2:00am and noticed he was bleeding again! It seemed like alot b.c for 2 days things were getting better it seemed! He was acting funny (wouldnt get up)and I started to get nervous that he was going to have a seizure and figured lets go! We decided to go to our animal hosp b/c I couldnt risk getting lost going to the new place! Well what a good idea b.c Brutus surgeon was on call so it was perfect! He looked at us right away and said that it was still normal for the bleeding and for me to continue what im doing with him..He said that Brutus is problem still having some pain which can cause muslce spasms or a seizure b.c of pain..(we are going back in 2 weeks for further testing to make sure he doesnt have a seizure condition.I asked about the relapse as the prev surgeon said..He said that Brutus might have popped a stich which caused the relapse I LOST IT!!!! I let them know that we talked to our family vet and she was concerned that it shouldnt have happend so soon! Told him that I was going to have to spend more money to get a second opinion and it wasnt about the money its about getting the best care at any cost!!! he understood ...TO make a long story short his surgeon said that we will continue to mointor him for the next 2 weeks and take it from there! THe suregeon did say if another surgery is required I would pay 500 for the after care which is NO PROBLEM FOR ME! THANKS TO ALL THIS ADVICE I BROGHT WITH ME AND EVERYTHING IS WORKING OUT PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY---sorry if some us this doesnt make sense I am so tired and cant wait to get to sleep!THere was so much going on!
