Buttercup's Story of Laryngeal Paralysis
Buttercup, a 10 year old Golden, had laryngeal paralysis, a condition of the throat that causes serious difficulty breathing. Three months after surgery, her owner JN writes:
"Dear Dr. Zeltzman: I wanted to thank you again for performing the larynx surgery on Buttercup. My husband and I are so deeply grateful and thankful for your expertise, insight and surgical skills and being able to correct Buttercup's condition.
Buttercup is a NEW dog! She can breathe, and normally. She is 10 and a half years old but has renewed energy and stamina. Having lost some weight, she is back in her dog-walking mood.
We continue to watch her closely, and always will, but now we can look forward to taking her camping and on vacations.
Most sincerely and thankfully yours."
