    Hi Holly, We hope Joe is doing much better. For Jewel...Her tail pocket has been removed...thank God. However, my Bentley has a small one that has to be cleaned daily now that the weather is warm and moist. Yes...just what yeast needs to cook itself into a frenzy and not to mention fungus. The nose rope and the tail pocket are daily chores around here.

    We hope Joe has a speedy recovery and maintenance mode can kick in so it doesn't happen again.

    From now on when vet go to a vet I'm wearing my "I love my bulldog" -shirt, just if that makes them think even a little about Attachment 89703what they say...

    Glad Joe is doing better.
    Seriously..l this was a covering vet..not one of the regulars...I know my regular vet would never say it.. I'm sure it is has some truth too but not okay to say while I'm sitting there worrying about my bud

    True this weather with allergies is not fun! The vet gave me removal as an option... He said "I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't say it".. I just don't want to put Joe through that at his age and he doesn't have a history.

    That's good to know.. I feel a little lost now that he is older.. I feel like I need to reevaluate everything.. Diet , cleaning routine, exercise routine .. Now that he is a little older

    I totally understand your position and I agree. The vet gave us the option when Jewel was having her TPLO surgery last year and I said do it as well as having her soft pallet shortened.

    It's true, you do. Seniors require a little more care. Blood work every 6 months, etc. Tyson's slowed down a lot which is fine. We started him on injections for his arthritis & we see some improvement.,, hoping it gets better as we continue. All in all he's great, besides allergies, etc. his blood work was perfect.... But as they get older things can come on a lot faster so just best to stay on top of it

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
