I have a 6 year old Yorkie with problems with snoring , sneezing and at times gasping for breath. the vet says it is a soft pallet problem and is reluctant to investigate as she is small. I still feel very anxious about this as the problem seems to be getting worse and it is not only when she is sleeping . My vet says he will take a look if I insist but I feel in a quandery as to what is best to do as I do not want to put har through that if it is not necessary

Get another opinion from another veterinarian! For whatever reason your veterinarian does not want to pursue this problem. A board certified surgeon would do the surgery for a soft palate problem. Ask for a referral or contact your state’s veterinary association for a list of surgeons in your area. Incidentally, we have had good success with this type of surgery at the sanctuary.
