    Pinched nostrils - need some advice please

    Hello everyone,

    My little baby cooper, well his actually almost 2 years old has very pinched nostrils they just look like two narrow lines bless him

    This summer has been awful for him as soon as he gets out he pants so much, nose runs, froths at the mouth and I have to just let him wee and carry him back inside

    His snorting and snoring are really bad too, the vet has advised to get his nasal passages widened which will hopefully allow him to breath easier and she also wants to neuter him at the same time this will come to 400.00

    The money is no object at all but I am so worried about the procedure and keep thinking what if he doesnt wake up or if the recovery is really hard on him

    Has anyone gone through this that could give some advise?

    Thank you

    Worried frenchie mum

    Awe bless your worried little heart!

    That price sounds reasonable for both procedures. @2bullymama may be able to give you some first hand insight.

    It's a pretty common procedure but make sure your vet is a well practiced bully breed vet. This is so important....

    and thinking it will be a good decision for your Frenchies health to have it done.

    The procedure is no big deal and the recovery is nothing. We had one of our English bulldogs nares widened once and it was no big deal, but the results were amazing. Also have your vet check his palate to make sure it is not elongated, as they can fix this at the same time. As @bullmama has said, just make sure your vet is a good bully vet and everything should go well.

    @lucinda1985 That operation is one of the best things you can do for Cooper. He will be a new dog with lots more energy! I have not had nares opened more but have had pallet clips done twice.

    We just had all this done for Cheli back in May. We knew he would need this done when we got him, but our vet would not do the procedure until he was at least two years old. Although it is difficult to see them put under and operated on... i would do it again in a heart beat. Cheli had very difficult time breathing and suffered from apnea.... he know has very little of both
