Both these breeds come with quite a list of medical complications. Their skin issues are now being managed with food and medication but both of these gorgeous dogs need to undergo BOAS surgery to enable them to breathe more easily.
BOAS (Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome) surgery involves removing the excess tissue causing obstruction along the airway, thereby widening the passage for airflow with the aim of reducing the clinical signs.
Brutus is such a sweetheart.
He is only 2 years old so still very much a puppy at heart.
He loves playing with a rope toy, but loves snoozing in the office even more! You will often find him suckling on his favourite teddy! Brutus struggles to breath and can be quite a snorer!
The operation will allow him to breath much more comfortably.
Daisy is quite a character.
She is a 4 year old French Bulldog.
She loves to run about and end her 5 minutes of zoomies with a cuddle.
Once she has the operation she will be able to go on longer walks and do zoomies to her hearts content.
Both will also need neutering which will be done at the same time to save them going back in for a second operation.
For their surgery, we expect this to cost in the region of £1,800 – £2,500 (inc. BOAS surgery, neutering and other medical costs).
Can you help support these beautiful dogs?
We need to raise in the region of £1,800 – £2,500. Can you help towards the costs and make a one off donation?
Can you sponsor Brutus and Daisy through their treatment right up until they find a new home?
Many breeds such as French and English bulldogs have health issues associated with some features that they have been bred to have such as flat faces, short muzzles etc, both of which are likely to create breathing difficulties.
These breeds are very popular at this time, but please do your research into the breed you are interested in before welcoming them into your family and any health issues that may be associated with the breed.
Thank you so much for supporting Brutus and Daisy.
Anything raised over the amount needed will go towards medical costs of other residents at the centre.
