Soft Palate Resection Corrective Surgery for Brachycephalic Dog Breeds
Dogs with this condition include, but are not limited to, brachycephalic breeds like bulldogs, Boston terriers, pugs, shihtzus, Pekinese and other breeds with pushed in snouts. In addition, many of these breeds also have stenotic nares (more info), a condition where the nostrils are pushed together and also restrict air flow. Dr. Brown has been trained by the veterinarian who corrects these conditions in the University of Georgia’s bulldog mascots. He uses a surgical procedure called soft palate resection and also opens up the nostrils to repair the stenotic nares. He has been doing this surgery for many years with great success.
