Can Canine Laryngeal Paralysis occur due to surgeries? In

Good Morning,Can Canine Laryngeal Paralysis occur due to surgeries? In other words, could having surgery on say a wart removal or eye surgery result in damage to the nerves that control the vocal chords? I read on the Internet that sometimes Lar Par is just inherited, idiopathic, or due to some sort of trauma. Not sure what trauma would cause it and it also mentioned surgery can cause it. Is this true? Would it be from insertion of the intubation tube, or just the fact that there was surgery performed?

When a dog has laryngeal paralysis and has unilateral

Hello! When a dog has laryngeal paralysis and has unilateral tie back surgery and that surgery fails over time due to weakening cartilage not being able to hold the suture in place, why is it recommended to try the other side. If a first tie-back fails due to friable cartilage, then why would they want to tie the other side back?

My dog started to wheeze about three days ago but has had issues

My dog started to wheeze about three days ago but has had issues with allergies in the past years with hot spots ect. I also heard as they get older allergies can get worse. She is a 13 year old lab last visit to vet in December and had some stomach worms that we did treat and have her on a monthly. She does take rimadyl 50mg daily. I know she has the allergies history but I'm getting more worried because of her age, but my vet in December also warned me that she is advancing in years and things may get difficult forher because I complained of her hips, to which we started her on rimadyl. She is still eating and drinking as normal but it's just crazy how loud her breathing has become. I have video of her, oh and her eye gets a little discharge through the night in the corner.
