BOAS is a complex multilesional disease that varies amongst breeds. During this small group practical course we’ll 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. Learn key surgical techniques in hands on practical sessions with direct help and support from our expert and approachable tutors.

 What you’ll learn: 

  • Risk factors and disease recognition for BOAS
  • Airway noise – what is the significance?
  • BOAS functional grading
  • Which diagnostic tests to use
  • What’s new- what else is available if the conventional surgery fails?
  • Surgical techniques – hands-on small group practical sessions teaching you nostril surgery, palate reduction, tonsillectomy and saccule resection
