|I've had surgery to correct my stenotic nares (small nasal openings) and I really needed it. I wasn't able to enjoy walks, play time or even get too excited because I would start coughing. I also had my soft palette trimmed because it was causing me breathing issues as well. They normally do both the nares and the palette during the same surgery and send you home the next day. I did really well with my surgery and healed very quickly with no issues. You can't even tell I've had the surgery, the only difference is that instead of my nostrils looking like little slits they now look a little more rounded. I'm much healthier and happier now and can walk a whole block without even breaking a sweat (much less coughing).
For me the surgery was necessary to help me live a happier, healthier life but it's not for all pugs. Some lucky puggies never have to worry about it. I know my Mom and Dad were really worried about me having the surgery and had lots of questions and concerns so if you want more details or need any information feel free to pmail me!
