Dog Turbinates

I am going to be working on a project where I need to get nose sections
from a dog snout.  Does anyone out there in histoland have any experience
with this kind of thing.  Would you suggest taking the sections first and
then fixing and decalling, rather than fixing and decalling the entire
head?  How long should decal take?  We have done rat turbinates, which we
usually decal for a week, but the dog turbinate will obviously be a lot
bigger and are made of much more dense bone.  Any suggestions or protocols
would be much appreciated.
