    Lisa thanks for your response. That's the issue. All the vets that examine him will try and talk like he has a good chance of making it through and surgery is the only option and they recommend this particular surgeon and then we get to that surgeon and the surgeon will basically say I'll do surgery but I don't feel very comfortable that I can give any assurance that I can get this dog through alive which doesn't leave us feeling very good. Obviously.

I'm less concerned with the ablation itself, as severe as it sounds. My concern is just getting him through the surgery in terms of dealing with the anesthetic, breathing tube and such again because of his breathing. If anyone here has had a bulldog survive surgery with these sorts of breathing issues, I would appreciate any insights that might get my man through this alive. Surgery prep? Anything that any of you might know that I don't. Thanks.
    Have you looked into a second opinion or another vet that is in the area? If you don't mind telling us where you are located, we may have a member recommended vet you can get another opinion from.

    My girl is 8 yrs old and just had surgery to remove a stone from her belly, she came through awesome, but our vet is VERY knowledgable with Bulldogs and when not comfortable with what needs to be done he sends us to another vet (specialists)

    Some really good advice here, I don't have much to offer. Dudley had one surgery - when he was neutered and did fine, but he was a baby. Sending good thoughts, prayers and best wishes for Sarge!

    Our bulldog had soft palate surgery when he was neutered along with removing his tonsils and widening his nostrils. Our vet said he had a very large palate. He did very well and breaths normally now. The change was amazing. I was very nervous but our vet does this surgery for the French bulldog rescue in our area so I felt a bit better. You may want to look into it Hope all goes well.
