I had mybull's tail pocket removed and the vet was not a bulldog specialist because we live in a place that doesnt have that many bulldogs. i thought it would be no biggie and very routine type surgery. When they put him under, he never recovered from anaesthesia. Make sure you go to a vet that has dealt with a lot of bulldogs and braecephalic breeds. I miss him so much he was only 3 yrs old.
