One sterile surgery pack per animal will be used. A triple layer closure with absorbable suture materials would be required. Prophylaxis antibiotics would be given to every animal.

    But ask anyway!

    The main thing is ISO gas if they use other things it can take bullys a long time to wake up and they may need help with their breathing longer after!

    Ditto! Ask but don't mention the iso. See if its what they will actually say!

    I know, Ruckus was expensive too.😕 When you get there in the morning you will either feel comfortable and confident with the whole atmosphere, Dr.s, staff, or you can just walk out. Many of the low cost clinics in my area are like chop shops, so we took Ruckus to our regular vet.

    i tried to take sarah to a spay neuter clinic and she was turned down because she was overweight and the vet there did not feel comfortable doing it. i think you have to go with your gut instinct really.

    Okay so this is the third time I am writing this post... my computer is just not helping me today...

    I dropped Izzy off at SNAP this morning and the facility seems to be great. They provide spay and neuter services at a low cost and you pay their fee plus they accept donations. I spoke to the vet and he assured me that they will use the gas ISO on her plus he told me that they have had many bulldogs fixed over there.

    I will keep you all posted. They will call me today at 5pm to pick her up.

    I have a feeling that if you ask her normal vet who charge $500+ on the spay that they would say they do their procedure the exact same way SNAP told you they do theirs. We had a great low-cost vet in my town. He basically earns most of the operating cost of the office through donations. But then he retired and some other vet took over. Ever since then, the place went waaaaay down in quality of service. I think the new vet got tired of giving vet services to BYBs... a lot of BYBs use that clinic to vet check and vaccinate their jillion puppies.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    I realize you've already dropped her off, but if anyone around the Houston/Katy (I'm originally from there) or the San antonio (I moved here a few months back for school) area are looking for a good inexpensive vet for these types of procedures, let me know. My EB was Cryptorchid, meaning only one of his testicles descended resulting in a very extensive and expensive surgery into the abdomen, so I did ALOT of research and got ALOT of quotes. Some quotes up to $800+ and with some research, patience, and a lot of calling around I found much cheaper places and ended up paying only $350. (Katy)
    Also, the cherry eye procedure had me doing the same calling around and visiting, etc, and I found another great place that did it for $175. (San Antonio)
    Excuse my rambling lol, basically if anyone needs great affordable vets in these areas I'm more than willing to help you out. It was all a PAIN IN THE BUTT, so if I can save any of you from it, I'd love to.
