Beyond The Nose: Challenges of Brachycephaly in All Body Systems

Nov 07, 2019
Clinician’s Brief Clinical Theater 2
Anesthesia

This presentation will describe the myriad of diseases that brachycephalic dogs are predisposed to and, therefore, what investigations should be undertaken to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the afflictions of each individual patient. The airway compromise is well documented but frequently these dogs also suffer with ocular disease, dermatological disease, external and middle ear disease, gastrointestinal disease as well as a predisposition to neurological disease and orthopaedic conditions. With a focus on airway management but also the value of a “global” approach to the brachycephalic dog, the presentation will concentrate on what can be done to improve the quality of life brachycephalic dogs have.

  • •An understanding of all the potential breed-related diseases affecting brachycephalic dogs.
  • •A priority list for managing the diseases affecting these dogs.
  • •Measures required to mitigate against the treatment of one condition exacerbating another.
  • •Perspective on how to focus on quality of life for brachycephalic dogs.
