Monty was unable to use his hind legs and was in respiratory distress. APF helped him walk and breathe normally again!
Meet Monty! This sweet French bulldog was presented to WestVet unable to use his hind legs and in respiratory distress. Following advanced imagining, it was determined that Monty needed back surgery. It was also determined that Monty was suffering from brachycephalic airway syndrome, which is an upper airway abnormality that affects short nosed dogs and cats. Monty needed a soft palate resection to breathe better.
Thanks to financial support from APF, Monty received the necessary surgeries! At his two week recheck post surgery, Monty was already walking again and breathing much better! Way to heal Monty!
