    That is scary but luckily turned out OK with the breathing, I hope they get the leg sorted poor Chumley.
    The vets have FTSE down as aggressive much to my annoyance as he is not only there since his eye op.

    Good lord... What a week! X-rays, depending on the dog will require some type of sedation because they need them to stay still and possibly in a certain position.

    Tear stains on NuJoint... wonder if that is part of Lambeaus issue. However, being allergic to most things 'green' in the yard could be the bigger issue.

    Lots of positive thoughts to Chumley--- praying it all heals up

    Sounded like it but true xrays would show something. I missed something in one of your paragraph as I went back up to re-read it. My bad.

    Days I wish they can talk.

    i think you should take him to a different vet.. I say this because i had a similar issue.. but first about the anesthesia tube , my vet did a light sedation with my rocky and she would not take the tube out until she knew he could breath well on his own.. she knows about the breathing issues that bulldogs have and knew if she took it out to early it could effect his breathing..
    and now the leg... my porkchop was only five months old when she jumped off a step not more the 1 1/2 ft high and she also started limping.. i took her in to vet(not my current vet) they said she broke it in the joint.. they wanted to amputate her leg.. of course i said no way.. took her out of town 2 1/2 hours a way to a specialist check her out and they said it was a delicate surgery but its what they do.. yes it cost me over 2000.00 dollars but it had to be done.. porkchop is now 8 1/2 years old and just in past 6-8 months has started limping a little on it .. vet told me she has arthritis in it now but they said back then that she probably would... i'm telling you this because i think if your vet took his tube out to early and should have knew his breathing could do that i kinda feel maybe hes not seeing something else.. sorry if i sound disrespectful about vets, i am really not a mean person, i just have had some bad experiences with a couple and so i am always thinking second opinion wouldn't hurt.. hope all goes ok..

    You don't sound disrespectful at all. The funny thing is this vet is the bulldog whisperer. The rescues here all use him because he specializes in bullies for over 30 years. He's actually the only one I trusted to put him under. My fear of anesthesia is the only reason chum isn't neutered and I obsess over it..I would hope with his experience he'd know not to take the tube out early...but who knows. Now with his prostate issue I'm even more afraid to neuter him after this experience

    i know what you mean.. i hate having any of mine put under.. its one of the reason's i had rocky neutered at the same time we had his tail amputation. My husband was concerned it would be to much for him but the vet agreed with me that it would be better then having him put under again... hope all goes well, and i am glad you have a vet that you like.. i finally found one.. around here it isn't easy.. the last one i went to i had a litter of bulldog puppies, and one of them got really sick at 4 weeks old.. i took it to vet and believe it or not the vet looks at me and just says, well, you had 7.. that is exactly what i looked like...i couldn't believe she said that.. of course it is one of many other reasons i found me a better vet.. good luck with your chumley..

    Poor Chum! And poor you! This must have been so frightening. As we have seen with so many dogs here on EBN, they can fail really quickly. I hope he gets his mobility back soon.
