Nasal Planum resection- This is basically removal of the nose in the case a tumour has developed, followed by surgical reconstruction. Often this can cure patients and still afford a good quality of life
Hard and Soft palate repair- Dogs born with a cleft palate may undergo surgery to correct the problem.
BOAS (Brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome) – Pugs and bulldog type breeds often suffer from airway problems and struggle to breathe properly. We can perform surgery on the soft palate, Nares (nostrils), remove the tonsils and remove flaps of tissue from the voice box (everted laryngeal saccules). These treatments can often relieve the clinical signs associated with BOAS.
Rib Resection- Part of one or two ribs can be removed in cases where a tumour has appeared. In extensive cases we refer to Oakwood veterinary referrals in Hartford.
