    yes please be careful not to let him get too excited. I worry about a vet that doesn't take the elongated palate seriously. they can't even tell without a little sedation to get s better view in the back of the throat. your descriptions of the episodes should have warranted a closer look. down the throat I mean. my first vet said yeah they just breathe loud. second vet said sound like elongated palate very likely, let me refer you to specialist. two weeks later, surgery.

    Yeah, I already have an interview with another vet in Kansas City. Second opinions never hurt, and in this case, could do some good.
