    Default Elongated Palate Surgery

    I'm fairly new here but the baby of my pack (I have 3 bullies) is having surgery for an elongated palate at the same time as his neuter tomorrow and I'm just so nervous. He's already had pneumonia once since I've had him and has just been kind of a fragile boy despite good breeding. Has anyone else had a bully have this surgery and did it go okay? Please keep my Otis in your thoughts tomorrow.

    Oh my gosh what a handsome boy! Otis will be in my prayers tomorrow. My beef had the enlongated soft palate surgery, nares widening, everted laryngeal saccule removal and neuter all at once last month. The surgery went well, but we ran into some bleeding issues post op SPECIFICALLY because they did not send him home with any anti-nausea meds and he was extreamly extreamly nauseous. Dry heaving and retching caused his throat to bleed. Everything worked out in the end though, if I had to do it again I would just make sure he goes home with anti nausea meds if he seems the slightest bit nauseous. It's been a few weeks and beefs breathing is NOTICIBLY better, snoring is way less, he has more energy and seems to calm down faster then before. He used to gag all the time and throw up white foamy phlegm with food bits in it (huge risk for aspiration) and he no longer does that. His quality of life is so much better and I know he's more comfortable. I would absolutly do this surgery again (despite some pretty scary post op complications) because of how much happier and more comfortable he seems. My boyfriend calls him "Beef 2.0". Otis will do just fine! He will be in my prayers tomorrow. Please let us know how it goes!

    Thank you so much for your reply, and I appreciate the prayers. I'm glad your Beef is all better. Otis has already had pneumonia once with a very high fever (we had to rush him to the doggie ER) so I'll be glad to get him totally healthy and past all of this.

    I'll be praying for sweet Otis, and for the doc & all the vet techs. Is the vet doing the procedure bully experienced?

    Thanks for the prayers. He used to be the president of our local bulldog club and sees a large number of Bulldogs so I'm hopeful but worried because it's just something new to me. I will update tomorrow.

    Lots of good thoughts and prayers to Otis! I've had two of my babies need this procedure.... biggest thing is to keep them calm and no barking for a few days... soft food for about a week too

    please keep us posted.

    Otis woke up fine. The vet said his palate was huge so it's a good thing that he had the surgery. He has to stay the night at the vet and they are keeping him slightly sedated. Thank you for the prayers everyone.
