I have booked my little nala in for her op and I am worried something will go wrong she has trouble breathing through her nose I have rung the vet and he said all will be well, has anyone else had a bitch spayed with breathing problems.
Honestly, if your dog has issues breatheing you probably shouldn't get her fixed. Why would you risk her life if you know she has breathing probs? In my opinion, don't get her fix, just keep her away from male dogs.

First of all, why does your dog have breathing problems? Is your dog a pug or a bull dog? Or does your dog have a specific health problem that causes the breathing problems? Your vet would be the best person to speak to about your concerns. If you are in doubt, get a second opinion from another vet. If your dog is brachycephalic, that is, has a smushed in nose like a pug or bulldog, then it shouldn't be a huge problem - the staff will make sure your dog is comfortable and getting adequate oxygen and that he comes out of the surgery successfully. If it is a health problem, I would speak to your vet.
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog. ~Edward Hoagland
Dogs are intubated and hooked up to an anesthetic machine that also supplies them with oxygen while they are having surgery. It is through this tube that they are breathing while they are under anesthesia, not through their nose, so likely there won't be a problem. I would remind your vet to make sure she is fully awake and has all her reflexes back before the tube is removed. That is especially important with brachycephalic breeds
