Elongated Soft Palate surgery, recommended vet?

Currently, at this moment, our precious pug Clyde is at the emergency vet following a seizure he had this afternoon. We are trying hard to keep it together. He is staying overnight. Aside from that, he has an elongated soft palate and I'd like to have the surgery done on him (not now of course, but in the near future), but am really nervous about it, I really would like to find a vet experienced with brachycephalic dogs, and one also with soft palate/stenotic nares surgery. Does anyone have any recommendations for vets? What about the surgery, has anyone had this done on their pug? Any info would be greatly appreciated. And please keep Clyde in your thoughts as he battles through this at the vets office right now. :(

Here is our full story, at the craigslist link below. Please, if you can, donate to the care and treatment of our baby.

We had the surgery done on our 2 yr old pug Tank last year when he was 1. Our vet is here in Sherwood but they do the surgery @ their Bethany Clinic. They use a lazer so there is no real healing process. He was a little horse for a few days but he acted as though he didn't have it done. He's fine now. He did the surgery along with having his nasal area opened up to try and get rid of the snoring since one of the nurses had it done on her dog and the dog never snored again. However, Tank still snores....he snores loud haha!

They say the surgery is good because pug's have to over work to breathe and its not good on their hearts. Anyways, Sherwood Pet Clinic can give you the number to the Bethany Clinic if you are still looking to have this surgery done.
