    Default Walter's impending surgery...

    Walter had another eye checkup today… the eye ulcer is slowly healing. We will continue the eye ointment until he has his inner lashes removed. I have noticed the last couple of days (especially w/the warmer weather) that Wally sounds stuffed up. I talked to vet about his nares and she agreed that he would benefit having his nares widened. She told me that both surgeries could be done at the same time… and once again she assured me that she takes extra precautions w/bullies.

    So whenever Ray comes back, we will go ahead and have these procedures done… Ugh I just don't know how I feel about this, honestly the thought of it makes me ill

    Sorry you have to go through this. I have the same thoughts with the neutering stuff and the nares which the doctor suggested for Harvey.
    Hug your bully today

    I hate it. But we have to do what's best for them to live the best life they can. It sucks, and the stress is unreal. But you have a great vet, and all of us praying & supporting you. I just know Wally will be fine & he'll come out better than ever!

    Dont do the surgery, if the eye is healing albeit slowly its stll healing and unless shes an English Bulldog expert, I dont know. The eyes healing that's all that matters.

    I understand what you are saying, but the eye ulcer wasn't caused by his lashes… it happened when he was with other doggies at the dog sitters and they were all playing. The lashes keep irritating his eyes, he keeps pawing at his eyes… and yes I can put ointment on them but they are NOT going to go away. If she pulls them they will grow back… it's honestly a NO win situation. I do consider her a bully expert because several times I have seen bulldogs in the waiting area to see her, plus she owns an EBD. I can't let Walter suffer because of my fears… and I can't let the past keep me from moving forward

    I have no doubt she's an experienced bully doctor, I'm just super nervous. I know it will work out. I love Walter like he's mine and want nothing but the best for him and you.

    I know that you do, and I appreciate it I'm super nervous too, and believe me if there was ANY other possible option I would go for it…
