    We had to have a procedure doen for my boy, Nitshcke -- he needed three things addressed to help his breathing -- two big issues were his nostrils were to narrow and his soft palette needed to be reduced. after, that he did much better, but not great. I do recomend it if your vet agrees... you are probably looking at 2500 - 3000 dollars

    Are you just in Vancouver? I am just down the road (about 40 minutes north of Seattle). Let me know if you are ever going to be in the area.

    Our vet waited till he was 2 yrs old so there will not be a need for additional procedures. No we did not have any insurance

    My vet checked Lola when she was a puppy and said to wait because the first year of life they grow so much that it can show up after they are 6 months old. Your vet may have told you to wait because he is still young and things can change. Let us know after your vet appiontment in January how it goes!

    @Deniztokcan is this your first bully and how old is he? Our makes tons of weird snoring and whistling sounds when he is sleeping but to my knowledge it is a trait of the breed. Unless your vet specifically suggests having a procedure done to fix a health issue I wouldn't worry about it. Kinda like if it's not broken don't fix it, no need to put Cappu through the un-needed stress on top of you having to spend the $$ for the procedure.

    Miss Tallulah snored like a sumo wrestler after too much sake. When she was spayed the vet (who is a Bully expert and owner that gets calls all the way from places like Germany and a kind wonderful person) did laser palette surgery. Said her palette was very elongated but her nostrils were fine. Not very expensive, ( around $650.00 ) and no real downtime. Healing is in a day or so and there is little to no pain becuase a laser is used instead of traditional surgery. Her breathing is so so much better now.
