Bella breathes easy again!

12 September 2018

Earlier this year a Siberian Husky named Bella was referred to Willows for management of breathing difficulties. Bella’s owner had noticed that she was breathing faster than normal and took her to her vets to be checked. It was here that she was diagnosed with air accumulation around her lungs. This was restricting Bella’s lungs’ ability to expand, causing her breathing difficulties. Consequently, Bella was referred to Faye Swinbourne, a member of the Specialist soft tissue team at Willows, for further investigation.

A CT scan was carried out by our Specialist imaging team and confirmed the presence of pneumothorax (air accumulation around the lungs). Bella was taken to surgery to explore the cause of the air accumulation. Surgery revealed leakage of air from a lung lobe due to rupture of a bulla (air filled blister). The leaking lung lobe was removed by Faye and the team and Bella made an excellent recovery from her chest surgery.
