Sorry bud. We lost Hans at 11 years old from bloat the Saturday after thanksgiving. Still not right around here. I just brought home his ashes on Monday & last night the art of racing in the rain was on. The whole family is on an emotional cliff.

Cheers to out pups! I hope they find each other in valhalla

Just another day, Work, school, yada yada. Wife took our 6 month old french bulldog in early to get neutered. No big deal, its pretty common and simple. Vet calls my wife around lunch, saying they are doing CPR on him can they continue? WTF!! Obviously she says yes, she calls me and tells me, i couldn't believe it. Get off the phone, dart out of the office to go get her and my daughter from home. She calls me back 5 minutes later hysterically crying says he has passed. We get to the vet, and the receptionist says i'm so sorry as they are leading us to the waiting room, the wife just breaks down at this point. Doctor comes in and says he was doing good until they tried to bring him out of anesthesia and then he stopped breathing and heart stopped, CPR couldn't get him back. My wife is balling, he looks at me and says obviously we won't be charging you for the surgery. I wanted to kill him. I had to walk out immediately after letting him know how i felt about his timing so he had absolutely no doubt i was leaving for his own good. I am kinda numb, he was such a good pup.

Our fantastic Newfoundland's Vet had actually been there to assist with her delivery when she was born. He was a friend of the breeder. Early on he told us about his concern with putting large breed dogs under. Other than a broken leg, at age 10 which he successfully splinted and healed, she never was a candidate for surgery. Perhaps there's something similar with flat nose breeds. Very sorry for your loss.

Oh damn that is awful. I know greyhounds have issues with anesthesia and need a vet who is aware and savvy. Maybe french bulldogs have a similar issue.

Very sorry for your loss...I asked my wife about this last night, she works at a Vet. She feels very bad for you and your family. She said it does happen sometimes, but usually not that young.

We had the heart checked on our one Doberman (known to have issues with anesthesia) before we had surgery done on him.

Very sad, I hope you and your family heal soon. It sucks.

Just curious, the vet was not in Placentia was it?
No, I am in Vegas. The Vet is in Inspirada/Anthem by the M casino. We will not be using them anymore obviously, if i have to drive to the Vet the breeder uses in Riverside, that drive will be well worth it.

When I lived in Phoenix I drove my dogs to McGwire in Havasu...I liked and trusted him that much. Sorry again for your loss.

Well, we picked up Maverick last weekend. 8 Weeks old Blue Fawn, in great health and the family is having a blast with him. My Wife feels it was meant to be, he was born the day before we lost Nacho.
