Hello to all. I'm new here and kind of looking for some answers and some support from those who have experience. My male recently underwent corrective surgery for his elongated soft-palate, closed nares, and removal of little 'sack like things' in the airway. He was suffering from some inflamation to his upper airway before the surgery. It has now been 4 days since the surgery and his upper airway is still inflamed and mostly obstructed. He is force to breathe through this mouth with does not allow him to sleep. He stayed in the hospital for four days post-surgery. Doc said we'll just have to wait it out. Meanwhile, he has lost 13 pounds, doesn't want to eat, and has difficulty with his oral meds. Its as bad as my children being severely sick. Does anyone have experience with this kind of inflamation post-surgery and how long did it take for your bulldog to be able to breathe though his nose again? Thank you.
