BOAS is a complex multilesional disease that varies amongst breeds. On this 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. There will be hands-on practical sessions to learn different types of soft palate reduction, nostril surgery and saccule resection. New surgical procedures will also be discussed. Pre-operative and post-operative care will be highlighted to help you decrease surgical complications.

 What you’ll learn: 

  • Risk factors and disease recognition for BOAS
  • Airway noise
  • BOAS functional grading
  • Which diagnostic tests to use?
  • What’s new- what else is available if the conventional surgery fails
  • Surgical techniques – hands-on practice of nostril surgery, palate reduction, tonsillectomy and saccule resection
  • Pre and post-operative management- including tracheostomy placement and care
