Hello, I'm a new mom to a micro bully who was apparently born ill. Pneumonia 4 times unresponsive several times. Icu many times and he is only 11 months.
He is 1 month post op from having enlongated pallet and nostril surgery. We believed he was becoming unresponsive due to basically being suffocating on the soft pallet , well since his surgery my little fighter became unresponsive 2 times... The Vet can't seem to figure out why. I'm waiting for his next visit this week to see if it's his heart. I know this breed is so ill.. The breeders should be never allowed to breed this type of dog. My puppy was a gift..a very heart breaking gift that I have invested over 8,000 on in 11 months and I will give my life now to save him. Has anyone ever experienced their dog becoming unresponsive specifically a micro bully. I feel it's his heart. It's Killing me.

What do the vets say? Does the dog have a chance or you just having a hard time letting go. Best of luck...

I'm so sorry you're having to go through this, and I wish you luck finding out what's going on soon so you can figure out whether it's treatable. If your vet still can't pin it down after screening his heart, I'd definitely ask what your options are for a referral to a specialist or local veterinary college (if you have one within a reasonable distance). Those aren't typically cheap options, but they have access to more specific expertise, tests, and equipment than most general practice vets, and will hopefully be able to give you the best chance of finding the cause and effective treatment plan.
