Thread: Breathing trouble

  1. #1

    Default Breathing trouble

    Hello all! New to the forum, let me explain my problem. I have a 2-year-old black tri male, fixed, that has..... I guess I would call it panic disorder. Whenever he gets in a stressful situation (and stressful to him could be anything from traveling in my car to not getting the toy he wants), he starts wheezing terrible, his tongue turns blue, and he can't breathe right for a few days. I was told that he could develop esophageal problems later in life. I don't want that obviously, does anyone have any pointers to try before opting for done kind of surgery? I would appreciate all opinions in this matter

    Hi and welcome..... could be his palate needs to be reduced. it is very common in Bulldogs -- have your vet evaluate him and determine if that is the issue

    I completely agree w/Christine… sounds like elongated palate to me!!!

    The tongue turning blue is so scary. Hopefully his vet can get him fixed up.

    Talked to his vet before they went home for the night. Apparently my vet doesn't do that procedure, but I was recommended to a different veterinary clinic and we're going for a consult Monday morning. Any clues add to the price range of this surgery?
