    I hope the dog will be fine. This is the first time I've heard of this abnormality. How will be the surgery then?

    good luck poor baby!
    gregory had that surgery but not until he was 16 months old. The vet who did it is our normal vet, but he is a bully specialist. He had his nose holes widened ( triangle cuts) soft palate shortened and got fixed all in one go. I was so scared and called them almost every hour to check on him. He got stitches in his nose and had to wear a cone for a week until they came out. He is much happier and has more energy now that he can breath better.

    I'm sure he'll be just fine - don't worry too much. Anesthesia these days is so safe............

    Doubt that it will change looks much and it's just so important to do. Imagine if you couldn't breathe well - heck, even plants need oxygen to breathe.!!

    I'm glad that you trust your vet, but I would certainly speak to the other person who has had it done there to put your mind at rest. It's just too bad that you can't wait until the puppy is a little older, however it seems to be a case that if he doesn't get it done then he may die!!

    Let us know when the operation is, and keep us updated on how your puppy does!!!

    Update on my gabby ~ Well surgery date came and went, we decided the morning of surgery to push it off as she had been breathing quite a bit easier.... So we are praying that we will be able to hold off until she is 6 months old and ready to be spade. Thanks so much for your prayers... prayer does change things!!!!!

    Poor thing. If you have an option for laser surgery it is much easier on the dog. 6 weeks is so young, but when it can mean life or death you don't have much choice. Best wishes to you and her.

    its so sad when a bully has any breathing problem,a few years ago the breeder ive had my bullys from had a little girl 10 weeks old she was due to be flown abroad but developed breathing problems,i was asked to look after her as the breeder had the litter mates so i agreed,the poor little thing was so poorly even eating was such a chore for her ,she just lay on my knee all day,there were times when my lads came home from school she would try to play with them but after a few minutes she was struggling for breath,i took her to a specialist vet,who said her airway was too short for her too survive ,also her spine wasnt as it should have been,i was asked if i wanted her to be put to sleep or she would have to be pumped full of steroids and would be incontinent ,it was so hard to say yes to putting her to sleep,but really had no choice ,i cried so hard and i had only had her a week,i brought her home and buried her in the garden and planted a tree ,we call it winnies tree,i know its a totaly different condition and she had always been past help,im sure that once your bully has had the op all will be fine and will be snuffing and snoring in no time lol,karen

    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.
