Our bulldog was neutered several months ago. Ever since the surgery, his overall health has steadily declined. Immediately after the surgery, he was uncoordinated and collapsing (the vet said this was normal since he was coming out of the anesthesia). Although he seemed to improve after a few days, the same type of collapsing started again a few weeks later. About a month after the surgery, he was collapsing regularly (and still does). When he collapses, he begins to sway, his head goes down, and he appears to stop breathing completely. He crashes to the floor, and will get up on his own a few moments later just to repeat the process. Other
symptoms include a loss of appetite (and significant weight loss), increased frothing and saliva, saliva vomiting, and loss of engergy.
We have consulted with three private vets and a vet college. Testing has ruled out a cardiac problem. The vet college believes the problem is nuerological and wants to do a CT Scan (which will once again require anesthesia).
I personally believe my dog's problems are directly related to his neutering. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced similar symptoms with their bulldogs after surgery? Could anesthesia cause these symptoms. Your comments are greatly appreciated.
