Ok! I'm new to all this stuff too..comparitevly speaking! But Jake has a elongated pallet too...my vet said if he were a real active dog..she would suggest surgery..but it shouldn't impair him if left alone. Seems all his brothers have it also and we are just going to leave it..watch it and see how he does...cherry eye..I've no experience with!..also..no meds for the pallet for Jake..but I suppose there are varying degrees!
..a side note..Jake doesn't snore AT ALL!
