    My 10 year old great hunting lab has a condition called Lab Par which is a nerve condition that will progressively get worse and make it very hard for her to breath especially during the summer months. There is a procedure called tie-back surgery that opens the airway. Just though I would ask if anyone could recommend a very good surgeon in the San Diego area. It is a very expensive surgery and may cause some future complications, but the surgery should extend the life of the dog. I appreciate any recommendations.

    Google Dr. Paul Cechner.

    He's an excellent mobile surgeon that works with many So Cal veterinary hospitals.

    Thanks for the input. I will follow up with the suggestions. I was hoping there would be someone closer, but we will travel if we have to.

    You need to contact Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Sorrento Valley. They are the best clinic of specialists in Southern California. You are correct that it will be expensive but you will get the best treatment and outcome at this clinic.

    I would recommend requesting Dr. Pike or Dr. Aiken. They are both very experienced surgeons.
