    WOW... talk about when it rains it pours.... poor Chunky and Momma!!


    1.) Grain free is a great way to go and if you are chaining, find something that is grain free and even better chicken free as many bullies have issues with chicken.

    2.) I have not had to experience the tail amputation, but my girl has had lots of tail issue, but placing her on Fromm Pork and Peas has helped immensely Also, a big fan of Witch Hazel on cotton pads to clean tail pockets, folds and ears.

    3.) I have experience with two palate surgeries.... about 6yrs ago my boy Nitschke needs about 4 procedures done to his air ways... nares, palate, and two other things. And, just last week my boy Chelios (Frenchie) had his done. The best and biggest thing you have to do is keep them settled and feed soft food. Both my boys needed it very badly their apnea was beyond bad... they would stop breathing a few times a night.

    I think it is great that you are getting it all done at once, less stress on Chunky and you. hugs and prayers for a successful procedure and quick recovery

    I'm all for keeping it clean if it's manageable. Vegas's tail pocket was extremely deep and very tight. I had a hard time keeping it clean and he was just plain miserable. So...at about 7 months old we had the tail pocket closed. We were uneducated at the time...not realizing that it was a pretty serious surgery and that his entire tail would be removed. This was way before EBN and FB, so I really didn't have anyone to ask.

    Now that it's all said and done....it is probably one of the best things we could have done for him. It itched him something fierce and he was miserable. Now he is a happy boy!
