    What else is your vet suggesting? Blood tests are just the beginning efforts of a diagnosis.

    Frenchies are known to have gastro issues. Are they checking him for colitis, etc?

    No one can really state what the problem is. And sometimes it even takes the vet several tries to determine.

    Did you get him from a breeder? If so, contact them and ask for advice.

    If not, look for a reputable breeder and contact them.

    They will have experience with issues like that and should be able to give you food recommendations, etc, that can reduce the pain.

    Has the vet checked his stools and urine?

    If you can, take a video of the episode, take a urine and stool sample with you and insist you need to get to the bottom of it when you take him back to the vets.

    If they say that is is his palette, do they mean that this is causing difficulty with hs breathing?
    There is a condition called BOAS which is common in Frenchies and Pugs. Has your vet mentioned having an operation?
