New Clinic For Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome
22 September 2016
Willows is pleased to announce the provision of a clinic dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of brachycephalic upper airway obstruction (brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome – BOAS) associated with brachycephalic breeds.
Brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome is a pathological condition affecting short nosed dogs and cats and can lead to severe respiratory distress. Treatment of BOAS can be very challenging and a team approach involving surgeons, anaesthetists and nurses is essential to get the best results.
Willows has had a high caseload in this area for many years and our team has gained a wealth of experience. This new clinic represents an expansion of the current service provision at Willows to reflect the specific needs of these short-nosed breeds.
Further information can be found on our BOAS information sheet.
