    Winnie is almost 6 years old. He has never had problems with his eyes or ears before now. The vet we took him to is the vet we have been taking him to since we brought him home. They have several doctors there and it isn't uncommon to see a different vet each time. The one wanting to do the surgery is the actual owner of the business. That's just one more reason I am suspecting this is a bid for her to make some money off of a bulldog parent because we are just made of money, right?

    I do plan to take him for a second opinion. The only other vet he has seen here is at Banfield in Petsmart. I'm not sure I trust them much either. So yeah, I am going to try to find a good bulldog vet here in the forums for him.
    Do NOT go to Banfield. They should be put out of business for the amount of malpractice they have caused. I know that @Mom of Tucker lives in SA - maybe she can give you her vet's info?

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    @Tracy T and @2BullyMama, DO NOT USE Dr. Sunbury at Sunbury Vet Clinic in Austin! The lady I got Sophie from used to work for him, and she has horror stories about how he treats pets.

    Good news though! I do know of a vet who I trust in San Antonio and who has spayed Sophie, neutered Tucker and removed his cherry eye. His name is Dr. Jim Young. He has a website: BULLDOG Marbach Road Animal Hospital 78227 Veterinarian San Antonio 78245 78253 78254 78250.

    He is on the south side of San Antonio, which is not convenient for me, and I am looking for a routine vet closer to home.

    Good luck and let us know what you decide.

    Removing the wrinkles from a bulldog? That's like shortening the ears of a basset hound. I'm glad you're seeing another vet. He's a beautiful guy!
