    Oh Good!! In a weird since of way. Good that she can quit the antibiotics and steroids. @Sherry @desertskybulldogs @Davidh might be able to give you some insight on that issue.

    Coco is so adorable!!!


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    Hi there,

    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.
    http://bulldogdomain.com/health/breathing.php

    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.
