    Question Stenotic Nares and ESP Surgery

    Hi,

    New to the forum (today!). Our little pug Phil (1 year) is going into hospital tomorrow to have surgery on his nares and soft palate. The clinician is experienced with this breed and seems confident that the recovery will be swift, even to the extent that Phil will be able to have his dinner later tomorrow evening! I wasn't so sure but I was wondering if anyone has experience with these procedures? What was your experience with the recovery?

    I know its good for him in the long run and will add years to his life but I'm slightly terrified for him (and me).

    Here, they have to stay calm for at least a week to longer....little to no barking. Soft food as well!

    Seeing all going well!!!

    Good luck to Phil! One of my pugs, Chainsaw, had to have six airway surgeries, but he has a very narrow airway that's extremely unusual -- most pugs, like my Pooka, sail through it without problem as long as the vet's experienced and they're kept very quiet (crated or otherwise very still) for week or two afterward to let the suture sites heal without the vacuum pressure that heavy breathing / exercise puts on the airway. You might also ask for pain control and also for prednisone postop, to help reduce postop pain (Tramadol) and swelling (prednisone).

    Most dogs do so well with this surgery, it's like a new lease on life. Good luck, and keep us posted!

    Good Luck! He'll be a new pup following a quiet recovery. Crate really helps.

    Thanks for all the good wishes! Dropped Phil off this morning, I swear he knew what was lying ahead for him, he looked more grumpy than usual. Hopefully it'll be pretty uneventful and I'll get to bring him home later this evening.

    Well, heard from the vet. Surgery went well and he is breathing on his own. However, vet said he has stage 2 laryngeal collapse and that Phil, at age 1, is the youngest he has ever seen this in! Can't put into words how sad I am.
