Soft Palate Surgery - Before

This is Puck, a 1-year-old pug who had a hard time breathing due to an elongated soft palate blocking his airway.  Turn your volume up to hear how loud his breathing is. 

Soft Palate Surgery - After

This is Puck immediately following LASER surgery to resect his soft palate.  Notice how quiet his breathing is?  See how pink his tongue is now that his breathing is not obstructed?
