The vet is wanting X-rays of cocos throat done.
She thinks in basic terms there is a flap of skin in her throat and it's too big and might need trimmed!!!
I'm so worried.com !!!!!
So hopefully thy will find out what's going on. X x
Just getting to read this. I hope your Coco's fix will be an easy one.

I hope you find out what is going on with her. She is soooo cute!
Who wouldn't love that face???
first of all try to find a vet who has great experience with bulldogs. What your vet is talking about is Coco's soft palate. Bulldogs have very small tracheas and big wide tongues and a flap of skin a the back of the throat called the soft palate. The link below should help you understand what your vet is talking about.
I know all about this first hand as Dublin has had soft palate surgery and a nasal fold surgery. I won't go into details here but the link should help you. My vet "specilaizes" in bulldogs and even he had a difficult time with Dubbie's surgery, but to make matters worse he said that "she has the smallest trachea he has seen in a bulldog in 30 years of practice" Not the news you want to hear.
It was a very tough surgery for her and recovery was very long but I know many bulldogs get this surgery and are fine. I think you should really look into finding a vet who has done soft palate surgery with great success if that is what coco needs.
The surgery ultimately helped Dublin a lot but she probably needs another one but we are not going there unless things get very bad again. The x rays may show that this is not the issue with Coco, but I wanted to share my experience.
Good luck and keep us posted.
P.S. I am orginally from Dublin Ireland.
Aww thanks guys. Ill do all I can for wee coco and value all ur advise and opinions . Much love.
Jemma and coco. !!! X
