Thanks Dede,

I realize I'm concerned about a procedure that is routine but I was still
worried about her little pushed in nose and having difficulty in breathing
while under but the technician I spoke to told me that she would be
carefully monitored during the procedure.  After all she has been through in
her short 3 years I just feel bad about having to subject her to anything
that involves pain.  She's just so happy now.  And I'm still kind of in
disbelief about what happened with BooBoo.  I just don't take anything for
granted anymore when it comes to my pets.

capable vet that uses iso for anesthesis, and does monitoring, she'll be
fine.  I have seen the proceedure done many times.  We waited almost a year
to do our Dusty because she has a hypoplastic trachia, and asthma.  I was a
basket case, but my wonderful vet called a specialist, and they used a
kitten sized tube to intubate her during the surgery.  She is now 10 yrs
old...fat and very content.
