Baxter has been today to be neutered, while under anisthetic he was found to have a deformed epiglotis this is under developed and probably also related to his overbite he has, some of you may remember that Baxter is a many tears dog, so the result of a puppy farm.

have any of you experience of this ?
we have been told to watch him for breathing dificulities, excessive panting and any cough that he may develope as he will be suseptable to pneumonia.
im obviously concerned, but Baxter is such a happy go lucky little boy and a total adorable horror!
he came through anisthetic fine and is having a check up in 3 days time just a precaution
