    Default Finding a good English Bulldog surgeon in my area?

    Hi all -

    I know there is a bulldog vet listing online on a few sites, but I was curious how you might go about finding a surgeon that you trust to do surgeries on an english bulldog?

    Or is it really moreso about finding a pet hospital with a good reputation in general?

    I suppose the anesthesia issue is the main concern. I usually tell them that baxter has sleep apnea and stops breathing when he's *not* on anesthesia, so they need to really watch his breathing through the night during/after surgery. This just makes me feel more at ease that someone is paying attention. My little trick. Feel free to steal it

    Baxter is finally getting neutered soon, and I was wondering if anyone had tips on finding a good english bulldog surgeon in San Diego CA area.

    I used the English Bulldog vet list when we were in Miami and actually ended up with some somewhat incompetent vets. Had better luck at the more expensive/reputable local pet hospital that didnt necessarily specialize in English Bulldogs. In the end I guess its moreso about education and competence than "We see lots of english bulldogs".

    -B-

    not sure about San Diego. Not sure which part of San Diego but if you are in North County, you can go to Dr. Butchko all the way in Riverside.

    Wonderful advice! Rescues tend to deal with a lot of sick bulldogs so they've seen lots of vets and usually know who's the BEST! That's how I ended up with our great dermatologist!
