    What a handsome guy! Love his teefers - so adorable! We just went through where our bullie Frank got overexcited, had problems breathing, then aspirated. He was really bad and had to go on a ventilator for several days. While he was on the ventilator, they did the surgery to shorten his palate, trimmed saccules, and widened his nares. He thankfully recovered and now he can breathe so much better. Our surgery was 1200, but it was actually cheaper because he was already under anesthesia and on the ventilator. Normally, it is 1800 where we are.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Alright, thanks for that. Do it stands like I should probably be spending in the area of $2k. Like its been said before, small price for his health.

    If his nostrils arent closed its prob that soft palate its best to to cake care of it asap as the heavy breathing puts extra stress on the heart and other organs.

    Yeah, as I said, we have a consult on Monday. Hopefully they tell me they can take care of it simple enough. He's a young bully, and otherwise healthy. Not very fat, more muscular. Hopefully it's a good prognosis

    Update on Bruschi: very wants to monitor him first. He says since Bruschi doesn't aspirate all the time, the surgery may not be necessary. Will know more in the coming weeks and months.

    good uodate!!! I would just be extremely careful with the tongue getting blue. A second opinion is always worth it as well!

    For sure. He seemed to believe that the blue tongue was due to an extreme panic attack coupled with the elongated palate. He's been prescribed more diazepam, and I'm too give him 3-4 any time he is going to be in a car, or travel, or any other situation we deem to be stressful. But he said it's not as bad as some he's seen.
