BOAS is a complex multilesional disease that varies amongst breeds. This course will concentrate on the three most popular extreme brachycephalic breeds (French bulldog, pug and bulldog) and explain the different lesion sites, disease recognition and risk factors. There will be a hands on practical session to teach different types of soft palate reduction, nostril surgery and saccule resection. New surgical procedures will be discussed. Pre-operative and post-operative care will be highlighted to decrease surgical complications.
What you’ll learn:
