Welcome to EBN, sorry there's no information I have other
than read the articles under Forums and someone will be on
to relate their experiences & advise you. I know it's very helpful
for their breathing & stamina increases.

Will be praying for y'all that surgery goes smoothly & over quickly
and recovery is quick & easy to, please update us when you can.
Sending hugs to you & Boris!

Wally had his soft palate and nares done at the same time, he was absolutely fine. Honestly I wish I had done the surgery on my previous bulldogs, IMO it's a lifesaver if they need it.

Best of luck... lots of prayers and positve thoughts heding to you all.

Neuter should be a none issue, they are usually fine within a day or two and wanting to run around. Palate surgery, soft food for the first few days and then work the kibble back in. Try to keep them as calm as you can and if he is a barker, do all you can to stop it so he does not add to the scaring in the throat.

keep us posted

hey there neigbor [MENTION=14752]Jmlevin[/MENTION]

Is he out yet?

Where did you take him to have it done?

I'm watching this thread for updates- but I bet your boy will do great.

Both of mine had brachycephalic surgery and were fine. One of them, like yours, had everything done at once. The nares/palate as well as tonsils and saccules was the best thing we ever did for them.

Like [MENTION=2894]2BullyMama[/MENTION] said, recovery is pretty fast, just keep him from barking.

good to hear!
if they have someone watching them over night, see if you can leave him there. sometimes, the palate can swell after surgery so it's best if they're already in a place where they can get the swelling down fast.

Woo Hoo, so happy for your great news, I know
you are relieved (hope you rest well tonight).

Thanks for the update, I'd just popped in to check
for news when you were posting this, lol

Again, welcome here, it's a really fun & caring group
and very knowledgeable.

Boris is handsome, rich color... he gives good face, I see :)

Thanks [MENTION=7457]nycbullymama[/MENTION] I'd prefer him to stay overnight for that reason the Dr would stay overnight with him that performed the surgery I do miss my boy but I want to do whatever's best for him.
