    We had Barkley's soft palate and neuter done at the same time a couple years ago and it has made such a big difference! When I dropped him off, the vet said he would take a look at his throat after he was under bc he doesn't like to do the palate unless it's absolutely necessary. But he ended up having to trim a good amount off his palate and his tonsils too bc they were all so long. He did it with the laser and Barkley was able to come home later that afternoon and had no problems! I've heard some vets prefer to use a laser and some don't, I'd just choose whoever is most experienced doing it on bullies. From what I understand, the laser makes it a lot easier of a surgery and the recovery time is a lot faster. Good luck!!

    I knew something was not right when Lola could never calm down and catch her breath after short bursts of exercise or even when anxious. After a terrible scare in which her tongue turned blue and it took hours to calm her breathing down (i called my husband home from work), Lola was scheduled for elongated palate surgery, nare widening, and saccule removal. Immediate relief and she has been fine (despite my overprotectiveness) since. Please do it if there is a chance it will make his life better. He is a beauty, I'd never want to lose him! Lola's vet also did not do that surgery, but she needed a tooth extracted at the same time. Our emergency clinic with the best surgeons in the city performed both procedures on the same anesthesia. Lola stayed overnight. So happy we did it. SHe's now turning 5 No more breathing scares.

    I am not sure about not using a laser on the pallet. If you're unsure about not doing the pallet then I agree with previous poster who says at least get the nares done.

    Also meant to add that our surgeon felt more comfortable not using the laser so we felt comfortable allowing him to do it that way. Personal decision for sure. Surgeons choice, but you have your choice of surgeons.

    Hey I had the surgery done with Boris at the same time he was neutered I was a nervous wreck when he had it but within 2 days he was breathing and feeling so much better and gave him such a better quality of life.

    Wow you guys really make me feel so much better about this! I appreciate the advice and support. His surgery is in 2 weeks and I'm still nervous about it, but every time I watch him gag while eating or get winded from a 5 minute walk I know it will be worth it in the long run. And My Otis, this handsome little boy is 13 months old! I've never loved an animal so much.

    Monty had the surgery and did great! It is very worrying but he came through without any problems at all.

    How is he when you take him for a walk? Right there it sound more like it is all about the nares. When he breaths with his mouth open how does that sound?
