What does brachycephalic mean? Brachy means shortened and cephalic means head. Therefore, brachycephalic dogs have skull bones that are shortened in length, giving the face and nose a pushed in appearance. Due to the shorter bones of the face and nose, the anatomy and relationship with the other soft tissue structures are altered; some of these changes can cause physical problems for the affected dog. Brachycephalic breeds include Bulldogs (French and English), Boxer Dogs, Boston Terriers, Pekingese, Chinese Pugs, Lhasa Apsos, Shih Tzus, and Bull Mastiffs.

Mild redness or irritation of the shaved skin. This can be caused by shaving and should resolve in 3-5 days.
A small, firm bump under the incision that is not red, painful, or warm to the touch. This can be the result of a minor reaction to the stitches and should resolve in 7-14 days as the stitches dissolve.
Your pet may not defecate for 24 hrs.
*some pets are required to get extra care package and/ or propofol for health and safety reasons. The veterinarian may or may not tattoo your pet to show that they have been sterilized. It is always recommended to keep a copy of your records for proof of sterilization.
